Looking forward to these two episodes. Just a reminder that M Virn is watching for the first time, so no spoilers about what may or may not happen in these episodes.

Not even about the cross dressing?

Thank you for that. TT, although I don't think there's much hope of anyone actually remembering enough of what went on to be able to produce a spoiler. Yourself excepted, naturally.

What, he's going to try to pull the old Toad of Toad Hall trick and dress as a washerwoman to get past the guards?

He's tried being James Bond (or any other secret agent), and now he's taking off Clint (Wyatt, John or any other Western hero)? Methinks our dear Patrick is living out his own dreams of Hollywood etc.

I was thinking along those lines. When he curled the brim of his hat, I thought "there's a man living out his fantasy".
TT, was this episode made after the break you mentioned last week?

That probably is how Americans spell 'prickly'. He's done his research.

I'm really not sure of Patrick's accent - I'd forgotten how did that!

Yes 13, 14, 15 and 17 were the four made after the break. The co-creator/script editor (George Markstien) had left and left McGoohan and producer David Tomblin to it!

You're right, she would have done this well.

Correctly of course.

I'm not a fan of Westerns, unless its Carry On Cowboy or Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid (which has a brilliant ending that Mr C Boucher borrowed).

The ginger menace in the top hat has a lot to answer for. Notably the overacting.

The young lad who got drunk in the jail.

Watching TP for the 1st time, I blamed AK for taking the focus away from No 6 and also for being synonymous with a downward turn in the 'story'. I may see him/ these episodes differently now. We'll see.

I liked the intro, where he rides in and throws down his gun and his badge on the desk, but this is just weird, and nothing seems to be happening.

He doesn't seem to be adding much to the story.

And you a librarian!

As long as the 1st and last letters are correct you can correctly read a mis-spelled word...

Wait for the last episode.

I don't know why I think he's in the last episode. I may be mis-remembering...again...

I vaguely remember him in that. But I would like him to add something to this story too.
