Volume Three of Big Finish’s audio reimagining of the ITV classic series, starring Mark Elstob as Number Six, is now available to buy as a collector’s edition box set or download.
Glowing reviews are already coming in for Big Finish’s The Prisoner Volume Three, released today. This third (and quite possibly final) series of four hour-long episodes stars Mark Elstob (Number Six), Lucy Briggs-Owen (Kate Butterworth), Jim Barclay (Control), Genevieve Gaunt (Number 43), Alicia Ambrose-Bayly (Number 999) and Lorelei King (Number Two).
I’ve been fighting for so long. That’s all I’ve become. The fight itself. The fight for freedom. And if that fight is over. Who am I? What’s left of me?
The Prisoner Volume Three is now available as a collector’s edition box set or via download from £19.99 at www.bigfinish.com
With an ending very different from the original TV series, the box set has already been well-received. Nicholas Briggs said: “It’s been absolutely lovely and such a relief that people like what we’ve done. I knew I was entering controversial territory so there was a big danger that our version would be seen as terrible, sacrilege, or at the very least an irritating irrelevance. So many people have been really generous and encouraging.\”
The Prisoner Volume Three contains four new stories:
Free For All – Time for an election in the Village. The regime seems to want Six to stand as a candidate to be Number Two. But when Two’s manifesto seems to be based on the notion of freedom, what platform will Six decide to stand upon? And can there ever be freedom in the Village?
The Girl Who Was Death – Six finds himself free again, back in London. But how did he get here? An explosion rocks the city and Six must work out who he can trust. Will it be Control, Danvers, Number 43, Kate, Number Two or Potter?
The Seltzman Connection – Potter and ZM-73 think that if they go back to the beginning of it all, they’ll be able to solve the mystery of the Village. But can Professor Jacob Seltzman really provide all the answers?
No One Will Know – From London, to Kandersfeld to the Village… will an end to it all ever be possible?
The Prisoner Volume Three is available now as a collector’s edition box set at £24.99 or on download from the Big Finish website at £19.99.
