The Prisoner The Prisoner is back for 2016 in audio form.

Coming on 5 CDs the 300 minutes of drama will be familiar to all Prisoner fans but brings a modern twist and some interesting new perspectives.

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).


We have taken a look at some similarities and also some differences between the new Prisoner and the 1967 original.

We have a set of 8 comparisons. You can see the first 4 here, register on the site to see all 8.

The return of Rover (the white blob) was one of the most fiercely debated issues for the new show. As we can see below Rover has moved from the seaside to the desert, still a frightening prospect for Number 6!
