The Prisoner 2 – The Chimes of Big Ben

I’m pretty sure Kiyan has actually heard the chimes of Big Ben…

Is Big Ben the only famous clock tower in the world? This is a strange thought I just had, while sitting here, trying to come up with a description for this episode. Googling ‘famous clock towers’ gave me a lots of clock towers after “Big Ben” as the first result, and I recognize none of them. So I guess I just proved that Big Ben is the only famous clock tower. It’s The Chimes of Big Ben, written by  Vincent Tilsley and aired on October 6, 1987.
