Short-lived but scary
15 July 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Atmospheric, scary little series brings the Invisible Man into the modern era through Donaghy's revision as the scientist who discovers the secret to transparency, then loses the ability to reverse the procedure. The series is devoted to his desperate attempts to identify a cure, before his mind deteriorates. Donaghy spends the series cloaked in a trench-coat, hat and bandaged face, his voice the only clue to his identity.

This series ran on the ABC in Australia in the mid eighties and while the staging was a little claustrophobic by virtue of the theatre like set design, the music was haunting and the tone was always tense and nightmarish. While it only lasted a dozen or so episodes, the ending was both fitting in resolving Donaghy's affliction, and equally, somewhat shocking in deciding his fate. Not the upbeat climax some might expect, yet appropriate of the rather dark mood that prevailed. Brief but memorable and worth a look.
