9889 and Needles in Derren Brown's Svengali (SPOILER ALERT)

The number 9889 is turning up in numerous posts about Derren Brown's Svengali, and obviously has some significance to people who have seen the show.

Also, the stage show reportedly includes a volunteer(s) going up on stage and putting needles through his/her skin (reminiscent of various past Derren shows, including the Robbie Williams episode).

As noted previously, a mind-reading automaton named Svengali is the centerpiece of the show. The back story is apparently that Derren claims to have bought the mind-reading doll in Hungary.
