Quotes

Frank: What would you do without us, hey?
Tom Crane: Revert rapidly to prayer.
Frank: Infra-red film, in case the lights go out, linked to these sensors which will go off automatically. Oh, cheer up! It might happen, whatever it is. It's all very hush-hush this time. Are we really up against something, or can't you say?
Tom Crane: Yes, it could be dangerous. Martindale should have told you that much. Have you had much luck with this stuff in the past?

Now out on DVD!
16 August 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I too have been waiting 25 yrs for this to be repeated or appear on VHS or DVD, but now it is available as a complete 3 DVD set: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0009UCET6

Very good review here: http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=58025 which notes:

"When Mrs Whitehouse called the show "thoroughly evil", executives giggled behind their hands, but they also conceded that guidelines had been breached, mistakes had been made, and so forth. They would "forcibly" remind producers about their responsibilities. So they solemnly promised. And while they patronised her - no such reminder was made - they also gave in to her, because when it came to deciding which shows to renew, this one disappeared in the night. I doubt if there was any explicit prohibition, but it was never repeated, never shown on UK Gold, never syndicated abroad, never released on video tape. In the quarter-century since broadcast, these ten 50-minute episodes acquired considerable mystique. Every now and again I would hear about somebody who had a friend who had a copy."
