"It's very cosmopolitan. You never know Who you'll meet next."  
All the time, every day, new connections surface. New contexts and interactions arise.

I grew up watching BBC's Doctor Who on PBS. If I've understood 530nm330hz correctly, the British program The Prisoner was a similarly common PBS staple similar cult favorite, though it wasn't one I ever ran across.

Doctor Who has been resurrected and is now on the 10th incarnation (actor-version) of The Doctor over in Britain. The SciFi Network is airing the previous season, Doctor #9, in the US currently. I think they picked it up because of the surprising success of the recent reversioning of Battlestar Galactica.

The actor who played Doctor #9, Christopher Eccleston, was rumored to have been tapped for a reversioning of The Prisoner. It currently seems he won't or at least may not be in the role, but the connection is how I learned that there is to be a new series. I hereby pass that news along to anyone who is interested but didn't already know.

And all these connections have left me dizzy.

My apologies, then, for the misunderstanding. My memory is an iffy tool. But I'm glad to bring news of the new series to you.
