Change of plans I am able to join you this evening!
I look behind me, what do I see? A pair of golden wings seem to be attached to me.

In 2001 I stayed in the Village! My friend had a brother who booked a couple of the houses as his son was getting married there. However they didn't stay all week so we were able to use one of these houses. I have been watching the series but I cant remember which one it was. Stupid eh?
It was the time of the Foot and Mouth epidemic so we weren't able to go to some of the places we had hoped. But there was plenty of places to walk in the surrounding countryside. Just through the woods we came out on some cliffs where we could see nesting birds and puffins. It was a lovely area.

Some people have all the luck! Glad you enjoyed your visit to Portmerion, Lorna. Sounds like you got more out of it than poor #6.

Hurrah for Lorna! Glad you're joining us. I am as excited as if it is my 1st time doing this rewatch. A measure of how thrilling The Prisoner is.

It was a great place to stay and we didn't have to pay anything!

When I watched this 1st time my brothers and I persuaded ourselves that John Drake's name appeared in the opening credits.

The woman on the radio sounds infuriating... it's almost to turn her off as well.

Fed up of all the buffering, I'm watching it in French on Dailymotion. No idea what's going on, but then I didn't last week either.

I wonder if the effect of seeing all these great actors was as strong as it now is.
