Be seeing you…

 

I’m really sad to report the loss of yet another genius. Patrick McGoohan has died aged 80.

The Prisoner is easily some of the best television ever made, but (and I only found this out by reading his obituary today) he also wrote & directed some of the ‘Columbo‘ episodes which starred Peter Faulk, another favourite of mine. I also love the fact that he turned down the chance to play James Bond in the first Bond movie, Dr.No, seeing the Bond character as a stock gunman who treated women badly. A proper gent then.

RIP No.6
