Fans interested in the new AMC "Prisoner" series remake may want to buy the latest issue of sci-fi magazine SFX.
The magazine includes a 6-page article containing interviews with Sir Ian Mckellen and others, and also briefly looks back at the original series.
It's claimed in the interviews that Patrick McGoohan was offered a role in the series but only wanted to play Number Two, although this seems doubtful given his widow's recent comments that he wanted no part in it.
The issue is on sale now at most newsagents and comic stockists.
