Storyline

One normal night over the Scottish highlands, Flt. Lt. Chris Drake (Vincent Regan) was scrambled and shot down an unidentified flying object little knowing the consequences of this rash act of bravado. At the same time Dr. Amanda Tucker ('Maggie O'Neill') and her assistant Nick Shay ('Paul Shay') were monitoring the sky for intelligent forms of communication and detected much more than they bargained for. The search for the downed aircraft led to the discovery of Lt. Charles Terrell (Anton Lesser), who subsequently turned out to be an army officer who went missing in 1945. After initial reticence Lt. Terrell started to reveal his story about the peaceable Echo's who had abducted him years ago and an ancient, merciless enemy, the nD's, who sought to enslave the Echo's for their own evil purposes. As his story unfolds and the evidence of Dr. Tucker's observations and the construction of the alien spacecraft lends credence to it, the nightmarish prospect of a full scale invasion of the ...

Trivia

As the BBC couldn't use real RAF squadron numbers in the production, 111(F) Squadron became 311 Squadron. In, fact 311 happened to be the numbers from the car registration plate which was used by the base Station Commander at the time filming was taking place. See more »

Clever and original
8 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What an ending. I don't think people realise how good the ending was. The ND's manipulated life as a tool. And they manipulated the echos to destroy themselves just as they manipulated us to destroy ourselves. There was no sequel to be had. We lost, we done exactly what they wanted from the start. We killed Terrell, then sacrificed the towns folks. Then sacrificed our own planet.

It is a really good brit sci-fi. Dark and dank and miserable.

The acting was a wee bit on the dodgy side, apart from Fred Ward who I will alays have as soft spot for after Tremors.

All in all pretty good stuff.
