Simon Templar set up a con to get a conviction against one of Rood's clients, which led to the death of Carlton Rood - thus removing him from the scene as a shady lawyer. (I'm still not sure if this was the intended result of Templar's scheme.)
After the death of his brother, Judge Rood found his stellar career begin to dim. A whisper campaign was mounted against him with claims that he was just as crooked as his brother. Former friends in positions of power stopped returning his calls. It looked as though he was finally going to lose a re-election.
For a few years, Judge Rood served as a bureaucratic functionary in the organization. But then in the late 1960's, he was given charge of a new project - he would be in charge of a village full of kidnapped operatives and any others with government secrets that needed to be extracted.
And these "Villagers" were from governments all over the world, for this Village was a microcosm of the world. (Like so many before him, the Judge never knew for what side the organization worked. And it probably didn't matter.
The Judge used a deadly mind control experiment with a live action role playing game of "Cowboy". But the role-playing was just as intense for the other participants working for the Judge - although Number Six never broke, the others did. One of his assistants went mad and then choked the girl working with him to death before plunging to his own demise.
Unless of course he changed his name and resurfaced somewhere else, leading a new life....
- 'The Saint' - "Element Of Doubt"
- 'The Prisoner' - "Living In Harmony"
David Bauer played both roles.......
