I'm not the Ninth Doctor, I'm a free man!

You've got to love news items like this one from

Sky One today confirmed plans for a big budget remake of cult 1960s classic The Prisoner, with former Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston tipped to resurrect another iconic role by taking the lead.

IIRC, The Prisoner's title sequence featured the main character being questioned over and over again about why he resigned from his old job. Last year Christopher Eccleston quit Doctor Who after a single series as the ninth Doctor, generating endless fanboy speculation about the reasons for his departure.

Talk about art imitating life imitating art - or is it vice versa?
