Storyline

A series of mischances leads an alien to kill a human doctor, and get arrested in the small town of Carterville, Wyoming. His alien friends bungle his rescue, and the entire town sees him go up in red flames! Now, the entire town understands that aliens have come to Earth. And the aliens are desperate to keep that knowledge from spreading - so desperate that when David Vincent finds out what they plan to do, he desperately tries to strike a deal with them to stop it. If he fails, the town of Carterville may find itself under water - a lot of water. Written by CommanderBalok

Now, the whole town has seen them
9 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

'Valley of the Shadow' is one of the most interesting and equally strange episode of 'The Invaders'. The secret of the aliens is seen by the whole town, and finally, David Vincent's crusade is come to the point where he has hundreds of witnesses and he is not treated as some nutcase with paranoid delusions. Well, it seems that way. I can't describe much about this episode without ruining it, but it is one of the best written episode of the series with many interesting twists. Rarely has David Vincent been more relieved and devastated at the same time by the end of the episode.

Fantastic piece of science-fiction story telling.
