Pre-Order Now: The Prisoner: Series 1

Mark Elstob (The Bill, Emmerdale) is Number Six and John Standing takes a break from Game of Thrones as the first mischievous Number Two. He is followed as Number Two by numerous different actors appearing across the series including Celia Imrie (Bridget Jones, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Highlander), Ramon Tikaram (This Life, Fortitude, Stella, Man Down) and Michael Cochrane (Sharpe, The Archers, The Iron Lady).

Writer Nicholas Briggs has a long history of script work for producers Big Finish, including popular Doctor Who stories and many others. His love of The Prisoner goes back to seeing its first broadcast on ITV. Guest star Celia Imrie is one of Britain's most well-known and regarded actors on TV and film, appearing in everything from Highlander to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Doctor Who to Absolutely Fabulous. This set contains four one-hour episodes, a Behind-the-Scenes audio documentary, and a lavish colour booklet.

Below is a 30 minute extract from the first episode.

Episode One: Departure and Arrival
A failed meeting in Belgium catalyses Agent ZM-73 to resign from his top secret post, but when he wakes the following morning everything has changed — even his name. Trapped in a bizarre coastal village, and with his every move monitored by the mysterious Number Two, the man now known as Number Six struggles to make sense of it all.

Episode Two: The Schizoid Man
Six finds himself fascinated by a strange bond which has suddenly developed between himself and Number Nine. But the next morning, Six wakes to find himself changed. A moustache, different hair, and… a new name. Number Twelve.

Episode Three: Your Beautiful Village
Something is very wrong, as Six experiences the most disturbing sense deprivation. Almost complete darkness, filled with haunting sounds, fragments of conversations, and a desperate call from Nine start to test his reason.

Episode Four: The Chimes of Big Ben
A new prisoner arrives in The Village. The woman is strong-minded, independent, and refuses to accept her new number — Eight. She is not a number, she is Nadia. And Six is convinced that she is his ticket out of The Village.
