Trivia

Some Invaders could be identified by what David Vincent calls a "deformed fourth finger". Technically, the finger is not deformed, but immobile, always sticking out. There are hints dropped from the beginning that the aliens are correcting this problem so that not all invaders have it. Toward the end of the second year they seem to have eliminated the defect altogether. See more »

Goofs

Often, when the UFO is on the ground, no shadow is visible for certain sections of the ship, yet others cast a shadow, indicating part of the ship was already filmed and was blue-screened in later. See more »

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: The Invaders: alien beings from a dying planet. Their destination: the Earth. Their purpose: to make it *their* world. David Vincent has seen them. For him, it began one lost night on a lonely country road, looking for a shortcut that he never found. It began with a closed deserted diner, and a man too long without sleep to continue his journey. It began with the landing of a craft from another galaxy. Now, David Vincent knows that the Invaders are here, that they have taken ...

qm productions tackles sf
29 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Quinn Martin uber-producer for television in the 60's & 70's with such classics as the Untouchables, the Fugitive, & numerous other shows tried a science-fiction series.This was a change of pace as most of his shows dealt with crimefighting premises.The Invaders was about architect David Vincent who becomes lost one evening while on an isolated country road.Becoming weary,he pulls off the road into a clearing in order to rest but witnesses a alien flying saucer.As the series went on,he discovers that the aliens are attempting to surreptitiously infiltrate earth's various organizations in government,military,& business in order to conquer us because their homeworld is dying.Since they can look like humans,Vincent never knows who he can trust.This added a creepy paranoia to the show.DV must give up his comfortable life as he launches his one man crusade to convince mankind that aliens are already among us.This was a well written show coming from QM productions.Roy Thinnes is a talented actor but he came off as cold & aloof in the lead part.He never generated the likability & sympathy that David Jansen did in the Fugitive.The spaceships were a cool looking design & the guest stars were excellent.This show belongs in the sf hall of fame.
