Storyline

Professor Eliot Kramer has completed calculations that will allow the Believers to create an automated jamming station that will cause navigational malfunctions aboard incoming saucers. But unfortunately, he used the university's computers to do the work, instead of Edgar Scoville's secure machines. That has led to his discovery by the aliens. In the scuffle, Kramer dies and David has to go on the run with the key data. When the police catch up with him, Edgar Scoville won't help, because Scoville blames David for the death of his friend Kramer! So David does the only thing he can to save his neck - he sells out to the aliens, offering them the details of the jamming process in exchange for a premier place in the new order!

Reality With Sci-Fi
27 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Vincent and company invent a jamming device that will stop the alien saucers in flight.

There is some obvious padding to fill the 51 minute running time, note the footage of the vintage Ford car driving down that road to the base.

Roy Thinnes reveals there is more to his acting ability than previously seen in Counter-Attack and there are sci-fi thrills with a ray gun and a saucer crashing into the sea.

An all-round good episode that combines 1960s reality with 1960s sci-fi, which is the key to what makes this series so good. The same mix worked so well with the earthbound Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea series (even if that was set in the 70s and 80s).
