The Invaders (TV Series 1967–1968) Poster

(1967–1968)

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.
Frank Black (lead singer of Pixies) was a big fan of all things sci-fi, especially this show; he wrote "Bad, Wicked World" with distinct references to it.
The character 'David Vincent' was ranked #6 in TV Guide's list of the "25 Greatest Sci-Fi Legends" (1 August 2004 issue).
Series creator Larry Cohen said that his inspiration for this series was Invaders from Mars (1953) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), his two favorite films when he was a kid.
The true form of the Invaders was never completely revealed, although there is a hint of it in episode 2.7, "The Spores". Their human forms were unstable and had to be "regenerated" periodically, or else they would die.
