This is sad: Patrick McGoohan has died.

It says something for the mental image I have of him from the Prisoner series that I never realised he had reached the age of 80.

Oh yes, of course. In that white costume, with the ever faithful Penfold by his side. He played that role so well.

(Oh, Dangerman!)

Sir Ian McKellen's blog about the filming of the new series is fantastic!
