Sci-Fi & Volcano Disaster
11 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Tony and Doug appear in 1883 on the volcanic island of Krakatoa, the island is about to explode and cause one of the biggest explosions in history, the problem is that the island has two scientists who want to remain in the island.

The scenes of Tony and Doug warning of disaster to come are well scripted and acted.

Guest star Ellen McRae (Eve) is one of the most pleasing Tunnel guest stars and her scenes work well. A scene where McRae over hears Tony (James Darren) talk to General Kirk (the Tunnel gets a voice fix on the island) provides McRae with a golden moment, she turns to Tony with concern and asks "Who are you?", who could forget that? Outstanding.

This is a William Welch scripted episode, which means that most of the best stuff is going on in the Tunnel command centre, the spoken words really sparkle here, from Ann's "they will be killed we have to act now" to Kirk's "one of the greatest explosions in history and they are sitting right on top of it".

Crack Of Doom is filled with disaster, interesting people, interesting talk, and Ellen McRae. Surprisingly, the lesser elements of the hour do not really bother the viewer too much and you walk away mostly thrilled by the show.
