Thirteenth broadcast episode of The Prisoner, where Number Six gets a new body

"Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling" is a television episode of the British science fiction-allegorical series, The Prisoner. It was first broadcast by ITV (ATV Midlands) on 22 December 1967. Produced while Patrick McGoohan was in America filming Ice Station Zebra, the writers worked around McGoohan's absence by having Number Six's mind implanted in the body of another man (Nigel Stock), who is then sent out of the Village to help capture a scientist. As a result, McGoohan appears in the episode for only a couple of minutes.
