Synopsis: Internationally acclaimed actors Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings) and Jim Caviezel (Passion of the Christ) star in the reinvention of the 1960s classic cult thriller, The Prisoner out to own on DVD and Blu-ray on 3 May 2010 courtesy of ITV STUDIOS Home Entertainment. The six one-hour episodes tell the story of a man who finds himself trapped in a mysterious and surreal place known as The Village, with no memory of how he arrived there. As he frantically explores his environment, he discovers that its inhabitants are identified by number instead of by name and have no memory of a prior existence or outside civilization. Not knowing who to trust, Number Six is driven by the desperate need to discover the truth behind The Village and, more importantly, how he can survive and escape to his previous life.
The Village is controlled by one man – the sinister and charismatic Number Two (Ian McKellen). In each new episode, Six (Jim Caviezel) and Two are locked in a battle of wits, as Six challenges the oppressive nature of The Village and battles against his captors.
McKellen and Caviezel are joined by an all-star supporting cast including Hayley Atwell (The Duchess, Brideshead Revisited), Jamie Campbell-Bower (New Moon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), Ruth Wilson (Jane Eyre, Small Island), Lennie James (Outlaw) and Rachael Blake (Clapham Junction).
