Patrick McGoohan and Ricardo Montalban have died...

As a life long fan of The Prisoner this is really sad news...

I'm gonna watch an ep tonight and raise a glass to the man behind one of the best tv shows of all time.

RIP Number Six.

EDIT - And now Ricardo Montalban has gone too

Sad news indeed - a great mind who brought us some fantastic (and at the time, challenging) television.

I know he wasn't young - but I am completely numbed by this sad, sad news.

A unique and very talented man.

RIP Mr McGoohan.

Very very sad, one of my fave actors. The Prisoner is one of my all-time fave shows (I go to Portmeirrion nearly every year), brilliant in Braveheart, Scanners, Escape from Alcatraz, Columbo and was even in an episode of the Simpsons.



Goodbye number six.
