Trivia

This production was originally broadcast only three weeks before the death of Sir John Mills, who had played Professor Bernard Quatermass in the ITV serial Quatermass (1979). His death leaves Jason Flemyng as the only one of the seven actors to have played the character who is still alive. See more »

Goofs

When they show Victor the film in the hospital, we are looking through the transparent screen towards Victor. But the countdown numbers at the start of the film appear the right way round to us so they'd be the wrong way round for those watching from the other side of the screen. See more »

Perhaps I missed something...
7 September 2008 | by (Hilversum, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I'm an old fan of Quatermass and the Pit (watching the DVD now actually...) but I'm a bit surprised by the BBC4 experiment I saw a few late nights back. Not great, not bad, not much actually - it was very much all theatrics and really lacked any real bearing. Plus the ending just completely fizzled out..I sat there thinking "Huh? What have I missed?"

Jason Flemyng, as good an actor as he is, was just not Quatermass material. As the head of a space program, sorry - he's just too damn young. He lacks gravitas and bearing and just seems as if he's always catching up rather than leading.

Fun - to a degree - but ultimately disappointing
