A dramatic and gripping episode
1 July 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This episode begins in yet another forest somewhere in the UK! However, it's only seconds before we're on the moon where George Cole is studying with intent some computer readouts.

Cole plays Paul Roper, a mature astronaut who lives with his beautiful young wife (Sonia Fox). Roper is being blackmailed to provide data by a mysterious third party. Will he turn traitor or do the right thing? A dramatic and gripping story, "Flight Path" is splendid viewing and the finale is hard-hitting and uncompromising.

As always, the effects are fantastic, the visuals are futuristic and the score is groovy!

Haunting stuff. 9 out of 10.
