Number 2 was the title of the chief administrator of The Village in the 1967-68 British television series The Prisoner. In the first episode "Arrival" the character was portrayed by British actor Guy Doleman.
More than 17 different actors appeared as holders of the office (all using the same alias) during the 17-episode series (some episodes featured more than one "Number Two", most notably "It's Your Funeral" which featured two Number Twos in major roles and images of two others).
In one episode (Free For All) it appears as if the post of chief administrator is appointed by an election in the Village. This procedure is not mentioned either before or after this episode.
