Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

A big long paper due Thursday (rough draft at 18 pages and 44 references) has been using up most of my time and words, but until I find the time/words for a proper post, there’s this announcement to ponder:

HE REVIVED Doctor Who, but now Christopher Eccleston is set to take on another television hero with the starring role in a remake of The Prisoner.

The 1967 series, starring Patrick McGoohan as a former secret agent who was kidnapped and imprisoned in a mystery village, baffled millions of viewers around the world .

The new version, made by Granada for Sky One, will incorporate the paranoia, conspiracy theories and hi-tech action sequences of modern-day spy dramas 24 and Spooks.


I’m not sure whether to be excited or worried.
