FENELLA'S MEMOIRS PUBLISHED
The Village Voice for the Village in 'The Prisoner' was famously provided by actress Fenella Fielding (who had previously also appeared in the series 'Danger Man' (alongside Patrick McGoohan), so it is with exciment that it has been announced that Fenella's memoirs, written by her and Simon McKay, are now published and available in book form.
A printed (and expanded with new content and photographs) version of her earlier audio memoirs, 'Do You Mind if I Smoke?' (the title comes from Fenella's iconic line from the film 'Carry on Screaming') is a fascinating read, covering her long life and career (Fenella will turn 90 in November 2017), including her time on the series. Coverage of her 90th can be found HERE.

In researching for the book, Fenella and Simon came accross Fenella's diary entry for her 'The Prisoner' recordings, and TUW is very grateful for them sharing this with readers (below). It appears that her voiceover session took place on 21st December 1966.
