He was not a number – Patrick McGoohan has died

January 14, 2009

One of my favourite shows of all time is ‘The Prisoner’ – it’s almost the perfect example of British sci-fi.  Weird, intruiging, great acting, brilliant writing and weird – very very weird.  Well sadly, the star and co-creator of the Prisoner has died at the age of 80 after a short illness.

As well as being well known for the Prisoner he also starred in the spy series ‘Dangerman’ (his abrupt departure from the show was meant to be allegoried in the Prisoner) and also winning two Emmys for Columbo (where he played two different characters).

Great, great star with who played some of the most memorable roles in TV.
