“A triumph of compelling storytelling – I was totally absorbed throughout. Writer and producer Nicholas Briggs totally ‘gets’ the concept of ‘The Prisoner’ and it felt as though these new episodes were a bespoke concoction, written specially for me! Briggs’ series has stepped out of the shadow of the original series and now proudly stands on its own two feet. Entertaining, daring, and utterly enthralling.” Rick Davy, The Unmutual Website
