The Prisoner

Show Tidbits
Patrick McGoohan (Number Six) is the only actor to appear in all 17 episodes. In second place is Angelo Muscat (The Butler) who appeared in every episode except for Living in Harmony and The Girl Who Was Death.
 
It is believed by some people that Number Six (Patrick McGoohan) is in fact the same character, John Drake, that the actor played on both series of Danger Man from 1960 to 1968, however McGoohan has always denied this. On the other hand, George Markstein claimed that Number Six was in fact Drake until his death in 1987.
 
Leo McKern and Colin Gordon are the only actors to portray Number Two in more than one episode. McKern appeared in the role three times, in The Chimes of Big Ben, Once Upon A Time and Fall Out whereas Gordon did so twice, in A. B. and C. and The General.
 
Patrick McGoohan (Number Six), Angelo Muscat (The Butler) and Peter Swanwick (The Supervisor) are the only actors to appear in both the first episode, Arrival, and the finale, Fall Out.
