Denise Buckley


PortmeiriCon 2016

Special Guest




Denise Buckley



Six of One are delighted to have Denise Buckley as our very special convention guest at PortmeiriCon 2016.


Denise is remembered for her role in the Prisoner episode ‘Dance of the Dead’, as the Maid, Number 54, who sternly stood up to Number 6. She steely played her character as an unsympathetic antagonist, with a flirtatious edge of charm. She was a tricky adversary for Number 6 and she combined forces with Aubrey Morris and Duncan Macrae, as one of the three judges in the surreal and tense trial scene towards the end of the episode.


‘Dance of the Dead’ is a favourite episode with many Prisoner fans and undoubtedly everyone remembers the iconic beach scene between Mary Morris (Peter Pan) and Patrick McGoohan (Mr Tuxedo Man).



Denise has enjoyed a very distinguished TV career and she has appeared in a wide variety and diversity of TV programmes, including cult classics such as, Man in a Suitcase, The Saint, The Avengers, Department S and Randall & Hopkirk Deceased


Denise will be attending her very first Six of One event and  PortmeiriCon 2016 will be a unique opportunity for members to enjoy the presence of a distinguished Prisoner actor and to share her memories of working and filming on the Prisoner.

PortmeiriCon 2016


A very special occasion


This year’s Prisoner convention in Portmeirion will be Six of One’s 34th event and significantly a milestone date for the Prisoner. As we move into 2016, amazingly it will be the 50th anniversary of the filming of the series in Portmeirion and fans from all over the world will be celebrating this landmark. PortmeiriCon 2016 will be testament to the longevity  of one of the finest and best television programmes ever produced and subsequently debated over during the last fifty years. Unlike many TV programmes from the Sixties, the Prisoner still holds its own all these years later in the 21st century. The series was completely unique, there was nothing like it before and there has certainly been nothing like it since. Its image of future technology was visionary and when you watch the series on blue ray format, the quality is such that it feels like it has just been filmed.

Select the appropriate button ABOVE to enter ‘New Members’ or ‘Renewal’ secure patyment pages and select the payment panel for the subscription rate applicable to your country of residence and click the "Paypal Payments" button alongside it. You can opt for an "Individual membership" or alternatively a "Joint membership"

Join in the fun of the annual “The Prisoner” convention, held in the grounds of Portmeirion, the colourful setting that doubled for “The Village” in the TV series.


With a full programme of both inside and outside events, the convention is a must-attend for every enthusiast of The Prisoner or those interested in cult television generally.


The current Six of One convention team have been organising conventions at Portmeirion since 2001 and each year strive to make the next convention even better. Conventions are self-financing and the organisation, preparation, setting up and running of the event each year is on a completely voluntary basis, provided by a dedicated group of people. Conventions are for members and are always promoted and run in a very friendly atmosphere. Six of One would like to thank Portmeirion and all their staff for all of their support and the continued success of Portmeiricon.

The Prisoner


Patrick McGoohan plays a man who resigns from a top secret position and is abducted from his London home. He finds himself in a beautiful village where everything is bright and cheerful – the people, their clothes, the buildings, the flowers. But despite this rosy exterior, the village serves a sinister purpose.


People are forcibly brought there in order to have their valuable knowledge protected or extracted. Everyone in the village is assigned a number instead of a name – the prisoner is Number Six. Chief interrogator and administrator is Number Two, but he isn’t the boss – an unseen Number One is the boss.


Failure is not tolerated in the village, and most episodes feature a new Number Two, though some are privileged to return for a second chance to break Number Six and discover why he resigned. The Prisoner struggles to keep this information from his captors and to find out which side runs the village and where it is. He strives to discover the identity of Number One , and above all, he attempts to escape.  


The Prisoner - More Information



SIX OF ONE, established in 1977, is a non-commercial society and is the only official appreciation society for THE PRISONER television series. Six of One is administered by a small number of enthusiasts, all unpaid volunteers working in their own free time. There is no "head" of the society, all decisions are made by democratic means through members of the Organisation Team. Team members are simply those who undertake a body of work on behalf of the society as a whole and the team expands and contracts to meet changing circumstances.


Society members are encouraged to participate, if they wish to do so, at every level.There is a convention at Portmeirion, where the series was filmed, and other social events and location visits are organised from time-to-time.


Membership of the society is by annual subscription and brings regular mailings which include a quality professionally printed magazine each time plus other printed items. You can join online by credit card or by mail.
