Storyline

Dr. Daniel Westin was a brilliant scientist working for an American thinktank who discovered a method to turn objects invisible. Not wanting his notes to fall into the wrong hands (including those of the U.S. Government), he destroyed all evidence of his discovery, and turned himself invisible to test it. Unfortunately, he didn't know how to turn himself visible again, so he wore a (extremely realistic) mask in public while searching for a cure. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

If a person were to become invisible he would be blind, as the retina would be invisible, light would pass right through it without any resistance. Without light hitting the retina, the person could not see anything around them. See more »

Not Many Saw 'The Invisible Man'
29 September 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The success of 'The Six Million Dollar Man' prompted this show, loosely based on the H.G. Wells novel. David McCallum played 'Dr.Daniel Westin', a scientist who turns permanently invisible when an experiment goes awry. He then becomes a secret agent known as 'The Klae Resource'. For McCallum, this was his first American series since 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'. As one would expect, he brought a lot of charm to the role. Craig Stevens played the 'Oscar Goldman' equivalent. What strained credibility ( more so than the premise itself ) was the notion that Westin could only be seen through the wearing of a mask, designed to resemble his real face. It must have been a pretty good mask because his teeth and eyes were visible also. The plots were mediocre ( apart from 'Power Play' which featured a stunning turn from Monte Markham as a psychotic villain ), and overall the show failed to register with the U.S. public. It was popular over here, though, and was still being rerun as late as 1990.
