"Be seeing you!"

Broken Sea Audio Productions has finally posted the first episode of its full-cast dramatization, The Prisoner. It’s terrific. The podcast is actually an adaptation of the DC Comics mini-series sequel by Dean Motter and Mark Askwith from a decade or more ago, not the original TV program. Here’s a quick description of the set-up:

“Alice Drake wants out. Out of her career as an intelligence field officer. Out of her unhappy marriage. A long solo sea voyage seems like the perfect escape. But she doesn’t know about the obsession that has gripped her ex-husband Thomas, another MI6 operative. He’s been editing the memoirs of an old man who claims he was once the chairman of a top secret colony of spies. Now he’s intrigued enough to use Alice as an unwilling scout, sending her yacht to an island that doesn’t exist.”

The podcast, produced by Gareth Preston, is dedicated to the memory of Patrick McGoohan, who died just last week.

Very interesting. I have read the graphic novel a few times, so I'll need to get this podcast and see how the different format works.
