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 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 »
A fab Sci-Fi Series if you can over look the bad ending!
I remember watching this when I was 9 years old in the Uk (Yes I understand I was way below the legal age limit but my dad watched it with me). I really enjoyed this interesting original story which in my opinion had good acting and fantastic special effects (if you consider the year in which it was made). Having looked at some of the other reviews I can understand people's frustration with the ending of this series, I myself even as a 9 year old felt very disappointed that no real answers was given. The reason for this was that there was originally going to be a second series but then BBC went over the budget and were forced to cut down in the next year, I do think that they made a huge mistake in axing this well loved series but any attempts now to revive it would be a taint of it's memory. I would recommend fans of Sci-fi who are looking for something alien and original to watch this although you may have to take the bad ending with a pinch of salt.
