Complex, involved science-fiction series about a special force of interdimensional operatives whose task is to protect the universe from evil forces trying to gain a foothold by disrupting the timeline. The strange energy beings are assigned to cases, when and where needed, and materialise on Earth as humans, each with specialist abilities to ascertain and then solve the problems. The mysteries encountered by Sapphire, Steel and their colleagues include people trapped in photographs, ghosts lost in time, and a dinner party of guests who are all long-dead. Their most-dangerous challenge, innocuous-seeming at first, is a petrol station whose time-line is repeating endlessly - and which turns out to be a major hazard, set by unknown forces, to trap Sapphire and Steel in a closed time-loop forever...

The name of the serials that appear here and appear on some DVD releases never show on screen at any time. Creator Peter Hammond has also confirmed that the names were not part of production documents and the episodes were only given numbers. The names also don't appear on VHS releases of the series. It is believed that the serial names were given by fanzine authors to make discussion of series easier, but this has not been able to be confirmed. See more »
I watched Sapphire and Steel when it was on the telly and, unfortunately, missed the last episode. (long story, but in short, my house was being rewired and electricity was off)
I was confused when i went to work the next day (being a Wednesday) and my work colleague told me that it had been the last episode..... SHOCK, HORROR!!!! "But" I said, "it's on Tuesday and Thursday, how can they end it on a Tuesday???"
So...... for years i asked around, scoured the TV guides (in the hope it would be repeated), all to no avail. :o( Then about 4 years ago, I was chatting to a friend of mine who informed me he had the series on video..... JOY O JOY!!!! :o)
I borrowed the series and watched the last episode first... as I remembered where I had left off..
Then I proceeded to watch the other episodes, along with my daughter, who incidentally is now an avid 'Fan'. We have now bought them on DVD. :o)) How wonderful to watch it again, and again. Despite the fact that i can still remember, almost, everything that happens, from all those years ago. Which storyline belongs to what etc etc etc.
If they can repeat Fawlty Towers, Reggie Perrin, Fools and Horses etc... (admittedly they are comedies) why can't Sapphire and Steel be repeated? A bit contradictory i know, as I say i have it on DVD, but then there are so many people missing out of such an excellent short lived series.
Not sure it would be possible to do a remake, as JL and DM played their 'roles' so well, and the 'chemistry' they had on screen was magnificent.
I suppose i could always loan out my DVD's (would I ever get them back though? ;o) For the time being, my piece has been said.
