Behind the scenes on The Prisoner

Above: Jamie Campbell-Bower as the intriguingly named 11-12 (what could that mean? Does he get promoted/demoted?)

Here’s an advance teaser for the new US miniseries remake of The Prisoner starring Jim Caviezel as Number Six and Ian McKellen as Number Two. We’re a bit bizarred out by the idea that a Namibian desert is the perfect location for the Village, but the tantalising glimpse of the sets seems to suggest a bit of ’60s retro chic. It certainly looks like a complete re-invention, though, rather than a simple remake.
