Now on the website of US cable station AMC, a teaser of The Prisoner miniseries ( starring Jim Caviezel as Number Six and Sir Ian McKellen as Number Two. Co-producer AMC is due to show this remake of the cult classic ITC series starring Patrick McGoohan before ITV, in November 2009.

Not much to see actually: Number Two aboard a bus in the desert... Since Planet of the Dead (the Doctor Who special of last Easter), buses in deserts should be banished of scripts forever -like clones. We see also Jim Caviezel and glimpses of a Disneyland meets Meadowlands Village. Talking about Meadowlands (Cape Wrath in the US), David Morrissey would have been a wonderful Number Six. Add this to that missed opportunity called The Next Doctor.
