Photographer Steve Blake witnesses a horrific car crash, in which James Wilson, head of British Nuclear Power, is burned to a crisp. He is stunned the next day when he sees Wilson alive and well, the inquest reveals unanswered oddities, and the detective heading the investigation, John Ferguson, is eager to close the case. When he investigates similar victimless deaths, he learns that Wilson was one of 200 survivors, several years earlier, when coastal village, Sweet Hope, collapsed into the sea, the entire populace saved by 2 policemen (Ferguson and Chief Supt Gates) - and they all seem to have moved up in their various fields suspiciously quickly since. When Gates's wife suggests he could have been replaced by an alien after the tragedy, Blake ventures underwater, where he's horrified to find the skeletons of all of Sweet Hope's inhabitants ! So, who are the survivors...? Written by Cynan Rees <>

Great Brit Sci Fi
20 October 2004 | by (Author of Freedom's Run) – See all my reviews

It's great to encounter a story with a beginning middle and an end. Comparisons with the Xfiles are obvious but the saving grace here is that its is carried off rather well. Good production values are backed up by a decent script and a neat plot line where the otherworld beings can't control the mind of a woman with Alzheimer's. Although the show isn't exactly fast paced the script allows the viewer to care for the players as the plot moves along. Douglas Hodge is excellent as usual although Leslie Grantham and the woman playing Hodge's editor are miscast they don't detract from the overall piece. Although the ending is somewhat predictable it is satisfying and not pedestrian and it offers the viewer a sense of closure which is rare in the UK where most imported American Sci Fi shows are left unfinished.
