My new favourite, is ironically one of the oldest shows I'd ever watched! How I've gone all my life without watching The Prisoner is beyond me. It's a brilliant British Classic! Surreal, very 60s and a total mind bender but brilliant all the same!
A big thank you to my colleague Lisa who introduced me to it by lending me her DVDs!
If you're unfamiliar with The Prisoner it is centred around a spy (played by the amazing Patrick McGoohan) who resigns his job for an unknown reason but before he leaves for sunnier climes he is gassed and brought to 'The Village' a very sinister place. No one is allowed to leave, everyone is watched and all are assigned a number. Our main character is number 6. And the powers that be want to know why he resigned his job and 'by hook or by crook' they try to crack 6 and find that out.
You can get a feel for it here:
I totally love this show and with only 17 episodes ever made, I recommend anyone give it a try.
Anyway, enough of me rambling! Onto the biscuits!!.....
OK, if you're not familiar with the show you're probably stuck! The Penny Farthing is a symbol seen around the village, there has been a lot of debate as to what it actually stood for (as well as a lot of debate on what the whole show meant but we'll not get into that!). For this I filled a circular biscuit with white and realised I had created a rover biscuit without even trying!
Rover is village security, and keeps everyone in line ;)
I then added the penny farthing with my kopykake projector. Although even with the help of the projector I still seem to be struggling with circles (the little wheel?! oh dear!!)
British Weather biscuits.
So there you go! My little tribute to a really cool show! What do you think?
Be seeing you!
p.p.s. Yes, I actually am that sad, but I won't!!!
