The 2nd Episode In Production Order (Not Screening Order)
28 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

About a power station that can contact the afterlife.

I never liked the way this was pushed back to episode 12 when in fact it was the second episode produced! It would of made a fine 2nd episode so why push it back??????

Guest stars Alfred Ryder and Mark Richman both appeared in several 1960s sci-fi shows (Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, QM's The Invaders, etc,) to the point that it was almost expected that one or both of them should turn up a 1960s sci-fi show. They were both very welcome! In this, Ryder's character has a touch of Dr Smith in Lost In Space.

The Borderland has a nice epic-feel (thanks to the Power Station set) and the hour is a bit different as it features no monster.

All in all, a fine episode.
