‘The Prisoner’ 48 Years To The Day

Nicholas Briggs of Big Finish teases their latest audio adventures, which feature the iconic 'Prisoner'

This is the first glimpse of what we’ve been up to with The Prisoner. As I write this, all four episodes have been recorded.

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am and how grateful I am to ITV for trusting us with this magnificent series. I think they may have spotted the enthusiasm of a young Nicholas Briggs when I attended the first meeting. The Prisoner was a series that captivated the entire nation and I was right in the middle of it. Just this week readers of the Radio Times have voted it the fifth greatest ITV series of all time.

Today, we’re being as cryptic as the original series. We’re not announcing the casting, but we’re giving you the opportunity to hear some of them and to see them in this great bit of artwork by Tom Webster.

We’re re-imagining the original 1967 TV series. It isn’t a continuation. We’ve ‘recreated’ it from the very beginning (and, hopefully, one day, until the end). It’s different, but it’s very much in the spirit of the original. So, it’s something old and something new. Our aim is to make you fall in love with this tremendous series all over again.

Be seeing you.

Nicholas Briggs.
