"The Prisoner" a renegade British agent forcibly removed to an idyllic village with no escape, populated with others of his like and subjected to various methods to coerce secret information from them.  The controllers were not identified as being either of the West or the Communist

bloc.  Patrick McGoohan was originator of the idea, I believe the producer, and The Prisoner himself (Number Six). This compelling series was followed very closely by its fans and a disappointing final episode generated outrage from the public to the point that McGoohan had to leave England; he believed for his own safety.  Just a great series (other than that last episode!)

Vividly remember watching both "The Avengers" & "The Prisoner."  While I can easily explain "The Avengers," I'm at a loss for "The Prisoner."  Do you remember the premise of the story?
