Jim Caviezel as Six

THE return of an old friend tonight, re-invented for the 21st century.

ITV1’s new version of 1960s’ cult classic The Prisoner may not attract a massive audience, despite its primetime slot.

But having seen the first episode three times, as well as later episodes, I’d recommend that if it seems like something for you – watch, and try and stick with it.

I was lucky enought to discuss The Prisoner 2010 over afternoon tea with Sir Ian McKellen, who plays Two.
