R.I.P. Mr. McGoohan
Patrick McGoohan, of Dr. Syn fame, of Secret Agent Man and The Prisoner fame, friend and star with Peter Falk, and an amazing Edward Longshanks, has escaped this Village today.
Mr. McGoohan refused the original role of James Bond, because of the character's loose morals. This set an impressive tone for his future work. His ultimate role as Number Six in The Prisoner placed a high bar for television drama that has yet to be surpassed.
Patrick McGoohan was a mere eighty years of age. God bless him.
Be seeing you.
