Reissue this on DVD immediately!
19 June 2004 | by (Norwich, Norfolk UK) – See all my reviews

I remember these two serials as being particularly excellent. Ron Haddrick as the enigmatic Adam Suisse (his alien accent made people think he was Swiss - hence the last name) and the ever-friendly Varossa, played by a very young Reg Livermore. Everyone thought it highly innovative that the aliens on "Babylon 5" had foreign accents because English, despite what you see in the movies, is not the first language of people from another planet. Nope, "The Stranger" did it first!

I seem to recall one of the kids was English - presumably to sell the series to the UK. The suspense leading up to the revelation of the alien presence was very well maintained and the flying saucer shuttlecraft was a really cool design. So good I can still draw it 40 years later.

These serials should be released on DVD asap, especially the first one. To be strictly accurate I believe the first serial was the one called "The Stranger". The second was called "The Stranger Returns".
