The Tally Ho welcomes you to The Village as we continue our journey through classic TV series The Prisoner. In this episode we look at Many Happy Returns, the seventh episode of The Prisoner. Number 6 (Patrick McGoohan) awakes to find The Village completely deserted. Taking to sea in a makeshift raft he begins the perilous journey back to London, where he finds his home - and Lotus - occupied by the eccentric Mrs Butterworth (Georgina Cookson). But from strangers to old, old friends, who can he really trust? Join us as we discuss this daring episode of television that doesn't need dialogue to tell a cracking story. We also take some tangents into real-life spy villages, double-casting confusions, and props lost at sea.

We are then joined once again by Nick Briggs from Big Finish Productions who talks about their wonderful audiodramas based on The Prisoner, including an adaptation of this very episode, I Met a Man Today. Be seeing you!
