'The Prisoner' - Volume 2 Review
The first volume of Nicholas Briggs' remake of the classic ITC series The Prisoner was a risky move for Big Finish. After all, a remake in 2009 had failed to take off, and since then, rebooting the franchise had seemed a risky prospect. I suspect that even Big Finish didn't expect the first volume to take off as much as it did. And, just as that first volume was one of the best releases of 2016, this second set of four stories is one of the best releases of the year as well. All four stories are amazingly put together, with fantastic scripts, amazing acting and peerless soundscapes, and two of the four episodes I'd argue stand as two of the best hours of material that Big Finish have ever put out, in its near 20 year history.
