  1. Just to note: it was on this day, ten years ago, that Patrick McGoohan passed away (his sister, too, also, sadly, passed away recently). McGoohan was one of my all-time favourite actors, and THE PRISONER is one of my all-time favourite television series, neck-and-neck with something like TWIN PEAKS. It was his role in SCANNERS that first brought him to my attention at a young age, and Cronenberg and McGoohan is simply a match made in heaven.

  2. Thanks for the update John, I might have missed it otherwise – and thanks to AB and the LRB for the podcast – even better to have both the words and music!
