Mark Elstrob is No. 6 for Big Finish's The Prisoner series:

John Standing, Celia Imrie (who I coincidentally seeing in Doctor Who: The Bells of Saint John on DVD), Ramon Tikaram and Michael Cochrane plays the No. 2s.

Thrilling entry for The Prisoner as the world literally went into the dark.
Very superb in this episode being mostly presented as a two-hander between No. 6 and No. 9 Ramon Tikaram is intimidating in his turn as No. 2 but he deserved what he got at the end.

The Chimes of Big Ben Part 1:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0001stk

Big Finish remake of the TV episode of the same name.
It begins with No. 6 noticing that No. 9 has gone.
It was when demanding where she has gone that No. 6 meets the new No. 2 played by Michael Cochrane.
Cochrane plays his No. 2 very sincerely and seemed very friendly compared with his predecessors even though he is clearly the antagonist here.
Things sure became intriguing with the new arrival in No. 8.
Not a bad cliffhanger.

Very good conclusion to the Big Finish remake of the TV episode of the same name as well as ending the first Big Finish season.
Pretty good on what a team that No. 6 and No. 8 makes.
Very good re-creation as the episode reaches its end when No. 6 realises that not everything is as it seems with the time being the key to all this.

The Invisible Man (2000) 2.15 A Sense of Community had Darien Fawkes and Bobby Hobbes in a retirement home for secret agents when they pass a man who raised his bowler hat to them.
They then say that was the guy that TV series was based on and that he sold his rights to his story.
That guy was obviously meant to be the real (fictional) John Steed and The Avengers was based on him.
It is therefore fun to imagine that this real John Steed had sold his rights to his story to Sydney Newman when he came up with The Avengers.
The premise of The Invisible Man episode is undoubtedly a parody of The Prisoner.
The Avengers itself had its own parody of The Prisoner with Wish You Were Here.
As well as The Avengers, Newman also created Doctor Who and I am now seeing the animated version of the lost Doctor Who story The Macra Terror.
The Macra Terror features the Colony which is reminiscent of The Village in The Prisoner with both coming in 1967 with The Macra Terror preceding The Prisoner by six months.
