These foils have all a length?

Well here we go with my first posting to my own blog – there is an obvious origin to the title of my blog that any Google search will throw up – but a slightly less obvious other occurrence of the phrase which I explain next week if no one works it out in the meantime.

    Actually, the hit at the top of a google for it is this blog:-) Hamlet is relegated to number 3…

    A hit a very palpable hit! – well on the obvious origin I mentioned at least. It is indeed a quote from Hamlet – Hamlet to Osric – Act 5 Scene 2. However the slightly less obvious origin to the title, and the key thing, is that this Hamlet quote is also used in a ceratin favourite TV show of mine – the Prisoner staring Patrick McGoohan – McGoohan quotes it in the episode Schizoid Man.

    Ah, I should have known. I see that poster every day and it didn't occur to me there'd be a Prisoner connection.

    I've only ever seen bits of the Prisoner. I should really be watching the current re-runs, but sadly I'm not. I have been there, though.
