Following his resignation, a high ranking Government official is abducted from his home and taken to a picturesque location known as "The Village" - a place from which there is no escape and all residents are merely numbers. Who are they? What do they want? - but more importantly, whose side are they on?

"Can you paint? Can you draw? Can you model in clay?" It's The Village arts & crafts competition & The Prisoner has an inspirational entry. With the help of a new arrival, Nadia, can Number 6 escape back to London to hear the chimes of Big Ben? - and if so, will his former superiors believe his story?

A. B. & C.
A new dangerous drug enabling Number 2 access to The Prisoner's dreams is a risky method of discovering the secret behind his resignation. Was he selling out to A. B. or C? Introducing each of them into his sleeping thoughts may provide the answer, but will the process raise more questions than answers?

"Elections, in this place?" The Prisoner is persuaded to stand as a candidate for the office of Number 2. A fierce campaign is fought in The Village with Number 6 the clear favourite. Should he win office will he finally discover the identity of Number 1 & order a mass breakout? Or has Number 6 been caught up in election fever?
