6 February 2004 | by (El Cajon, California) – See all my reviews

Though not outstanding, this was a decent thriller to get involved with. I suppose it would have been easier for me to understand if I had watched the original series, "Doomwatch". The gist I got, was that the Doomwatch team was a watchdog group watching governments and private industries for illegal and immoral practices.

The leader of the group, though retired is Spencer Quist(Philip Stone) who is the mentor of Neil Tannahill(Trevor Eve) and Toby Ross(Miles Anderson). The story begins in 1999. Quist is retired and Tannahill teaches post-graduate Physics at the local university. As he was drawn into the Doomwatch project, he draws his students into it as well asking for help to decipher cryptic notes from Quist. In another part of England, Ross is working with the Pandora Corporation to develop clean energy. They develop a Black Hole, which goes out of control. Ross is prevented from asking for help by the government and the corporation. He is out of his league and the hole is losing stability. Because the project is so secret, the security forces seek out and kill those who have knowledge of any part of the project. The only ones standing in the way are the members of Doomwatch and a local police officer(John Vine).

When Quist is killed under suspicious circumstances, Tannahill seeks out Ross to find out about the project and forces Ross to accept his help. Between the two Physicists, the hole is brought under control, but will remain in it's current position for the rest of time.

I have discovered that this was supposed to be the pilot of a new series of "Doomwatch" episodes called "Winter Angel". It was a shame it didn't sell, because as I finished watching it, I decided to check to see if there were any other episodes made. I found only the series from 1970, of which several episodes are missing. I then looked to see if anyone had written any books or if the series itself was based on a novel, like so many are. There weren't any novels or novelettes.

This is a disappointment because with the quality of actors involved in the project, it would have been an enjoyable series to watch.
