Descriptions The Laughing Prisoner

A funny remake of “The Prisoner” – with a 1980’s twist to it ‘The Laughing Prisoner’ is a remake (or homage) of (to) the Kafkaesque 1960’s television show ‘The Prisoner’ with Patrick McGoohan in the lead role. This time it is a successful television presenter (Jools Holland) who decides to quit at the height of his stardom. He is abducted from his apartment and brought to the village, where number 2 (a young Stephen Fry) is questioning him. The whole show has a cosy 1980’s feel to it, with several bands from that period performing their music.
