Be seeing you, Number Six

Patrick McGoohan of the delightfully surreal TV show The Prisoner, has passed away. Obituary here.  

I remember watching The Prisoner when I was very young. I'm sure I didn't grasp 99% of what I was seeing (though I was terrified of Rover) but the show nevertheless made a big impression on me. (In my novels Ashes and Reckoning, I made The Prisoner's catchphrase "Be seeing  you" the farewell words used by two of my characters.)

Here's the opening sequence for The Prisoner. You're a free man now, Number 6.
