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

Goof: During the scene in the first episode when the HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelter) doors are opening, you can clearly see 111(F) Squadron's 75th Anniversary markings on the doors' interior. On the door on the left of screen, you can clearly see '1 SQU', meaning that the fictional squadron named in the series can't be 313(F). See more »

I wish a sequel was in the works!
16 April 2001 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

I really loved this show. It appeared on the Space Channel here in Canada. I've seen it 3 times and get something new out of it every time I watch it. I found it very entertaining, in that typical dry, British way. The Brits really know how to do Sci-Fi, totally unforgiving. The last scene was incredibly haunting and I really wish that there was a sequel underway. The acting was incredible, the characters believable and likeable (and not so likeable) and the plotline profound. I would watch it again in a heartbeat!
