The Prisoner Returns

It looks like Christopher Eccleston, who stared as the ninth Doctor in the first season of the revival of Doctor Who, is set to play the lead in another re-imagining of a British cult series. Yep, according to Outpost Gallifrey, The Prisoner is coming back, and Eccleston will play Number Six, who should not be confused with the Number Six from another recently re-imagined cult series. The original 17-episode series aired in 1967 and chronicles the abduction of an unnamed character after he attempts to resign his position as a secret agent. The new series has a commitment of 6 episodes; I don't know when it will air, but I would guess sometime in '007. Sadly, the Welsh resort of Portmeirion will not be used as the Village. Instead, a more exotic location will be employed. I just hope the penny-farthing number tags and logo are still used.
