Recollections of this episode
13 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this series as an impressionable 14 year old and this particular episode is indelibly etched in my memory. I was utterly shocked by the sudden ending, not only for how it happened, but also for the fact that I thought we were only near the middle of the episode. The synopsis as given by F G McIntyre is generally as I recall but the ending is a little different. My recollections are that:- · The setting was a small airfield on a misty evening. · Proper conversational contact between those at the airfield and the people on the spacecraft only occurred after it was realised that the alien speech was significantly faster than human speech. (So ours was speeded up and transmitted, their transmission was slowed down) · The aliens were coaxed to land their craft on Earth, on a promise that there were no scary animals around. · They were guided down by an airfield beam or beacon. · Upon landing they opened their windows and accused us of lying, saying there were monstrous animals outside their craft.

Spoiler COMING UP. The last (indelibly etched) short scene was shot as if by someone a few inches tall. It showed a path leading to the airfield building, with what looked like a golf ball nestled at the edge of the path. A man rushed from the building to look for this craft, but he crushed it underfoot. The people at the airfield had not realised that the aliens were very small (though certainly not microscopic) and, of course, I hadn't expected that either. The size factor could have been deduced through the need to retard the alien speech. The scary monsters were actually worms! Boris Karloff at his best.
