At the end of the series, it is revealed that the village existed within a "psychic bubble" within which, once someone entered the circle of stones surrounding the village, they could not leave. However, in the very first episode, Dr. Brake arrives in the village to find that a moving company has delivered several boxes of scientific equipment and, following the delivery, departed the village without any problem.

Teatime viewing that sent me running out to play.....

Before HALLOWEEN scared the living hell out of me as a teenager, I was scared out of my wits by this classic 1977 TV series. To this day, I haven't sat down and watched it in any shape or form and I know that it has just been released on DVD in the UK.

I was eight years old at the time and I can safely say that this was what THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT purported to be, but wasn't.

The music was sheer terror in my view and after about three to four episodes of the show and one night in which I woke up with nightmares, my parents withdrew me and sent me out to play in the street for half an hour (the show was screened between 4.45pm - 5.15pm on a weekday as I remember). The symbolism of the stones and also the opening shot of sunbeams shining between the stones was also another factor, as well as the image of Stonehenge in a picture framed on the wall. As I was also fascinated by astronomy at the time, the image of a telescope was another memory that made it terrifying.

I can't really give you anything about the plot, as it was sheer terror at the time....
