    This episode possibly is the weakest, mainly because of it's simple story. Not really The Prisoner style. This is almost an ITC standard story transplanted into The Prisoner.
    The Village authorities want to assassinate a retiring Number Two, and to escape blame by scapegoating an old man, The Village watchmaker who believes he is working for a resistance group within The Village called Jammers, but in fact it is being orchestrated by Number 2 under orders to bump off his predecessor by Number 1.
    There's still some interesting goings on in this story, despite The Prisoner not trying to escape or the authorities trying to interrogate or coerce him.
    Derren Nesbitt stars as the super cool Number 2, and Wanda Ventham also appears.
