In the opening episode, the characters of Diane and Sally are said to be Dr. Peter Brady's widowed sister and her daughter.

This must have been a wondrous new addition to 1950s Television? Made by the ITC company, who always managed to produce something a little different from the endless cops and robber/western import shows from America. Its very easy to criticise this series in the 21st century, but if you look at it in the context of the time it was made, It was pretty darn clever. The special effects were ambitious for their day and still look effective, as good as or even better than an expensively made series like 'The Outer Limits'(1963) where there was no attempt to hide special effect 'wires' at all . It must have been terribly difficult trying to make a show like this in television time and budget? Certainly this show's effects stand up well against the 1975 'Invisible Man' remake series which used a lot of chroma key overlay for effects and consequently the large amount of blue fuzz, made it unconvincing.
