Steven and Erika of Lazy Doctor Who watch the colourful, psychadelic, trippy, wtf-is-happening spy-fi series that is 1967’s "The Prisoner."

In The Village: “A. B. and C.”

Erika and Steven finally talk about one of the most important aspects of the entire show: the font. Also, about the deep insight we get into the mind of our hero — without actually learning anything beyond how formidable an opponent he can be.

And Erika remembers her segment in which she determines the outfit she’d most like to cosplay from this episode. Lots of party dresses to choose from in this one, but her selection may surprise you. It sure did Steven!

Be seeing you!

In The Village: “The Chimes of Big Ben”

Steven and Erika are homesick (visitor-sick? tourist-sick?) for London. Though maybe not as much as our hero. But look where that gets him.

The controversy over the “proper” viewing order for The Prisoner are starting already. Erika has feelings about this episode’s placement and does not hold back. Do you know where it slotted in the Canadian run? You’ll plotz.

Be seeing you!

In The Village: “Arrival”

Erika and Steven find themselves in The Village, along with a dashing, confused, bemused, resourceful super-spy. The 60s are swinging, and so is our hero’s sense of whom he can trust.

Your hosts, however, know we can trust this series to entertain them right out of their socks. We are thrilled to be rewatching and even more thrilled to have you along for the ride!

Happy 50th anniversary to this beloved programme!

Be seeing you!

In The Village: Introduction

Steven and Erika of Lazy Doctor Who fame(?) launch a new effort covering the colourful, psychadelic, trippy, wtf-is-happening spy-fi series that is 1967’s The Prisoner.

The world premiere of The Prisoner happened 50 years ago today — in Canada, of all places! Despite this bit of our national heritage, we’ll release our episodes 50 years after each one aired in the UK. So expect the first proper In The Village ep to cover “Arrival” on the 50th anniversary of its UK premiere: September 29.

Yes, we’ll be watching in the original UK airing order. Do you have a problem with that? Well, you’re not alone. Don’t worry. We’ll cover this additional odd aspect of an already odd show.

We hope you’ll join us and enjoy. If you don’t, then blame the Lazy Doctor Who listeners who asked for it. Be careful what you wish for!

Be seeing you!
