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 Dance of the Dead, the eighth episode of The Prisoner. Number 6 is invited to take part in the annual carnival, but is given his own suit to wear as a costume. When a dead body washes up on the beach with a pocket radio he attempts to communicate with the outside world. But Number 2 (Mary Morris) and her team of observers have other plans for the body, and for an old friend Number 6 finds in the village, the doomed Roland Walter Dutton. Join us as we discuss this remarkable episode which plays with the very notion of life and death, ripe with overtones of classical mythology and fairy tales.

We are then joined once again by Prof Fiona Moore, an anthropologist at Royal Holloway University of London, and co-author of Fall Out: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to The Prisoner. Be seeing you!
