The Mid-Season Surge Of Greatness Continues
25 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

A time traveller named Mr Pem (Henry Jones) sends the submarine Seaview a million years into the past.

Screen entertainment does not get much better than this, yes I am a Voyage-Nutcase, but I tell it like it is, if Voyage does a crap show I will say it is crap, but I can only say good things about A Time To Die.

Writer William Welch let us down at the start of year four with the very average time travelling hour - Time Lock - but maybe Irwin told him to get his act together and try again, the result: A Time To Die! A very pleasing Welch time travel script with some knockout acting from both Basehart and Henry Jones...the pair talk and talk and talk together and we hang on every word! I would even go as far as saying that act two of A Time To Die is the best scripted bit of science fiction I have ever seen on the screen.

On top of the script and acting we have music, very new Leith Stevens music, and it seems Irwin may of told this guy to lift his game a bit as well because this is some of the very best Leith Stevens music I have ever heard. Stevens scored Destination Moon (1950), War Of The Worlds (1953), Lost In Space: Blast Off Into Space (1966) and Time Tunnel: Reign Of Terror (1966), all mind-blowing music, but his A Time To Die score might just be better than all of those!

Much like season two's The Cyborg, this hour is a winning combination of top sci-fic story telling, top acting, mild humour and totally outstanding music. And if you feel that A Time To Die needs a follow up episode, don't worry, you got it, Mr Pem returns in the Voyage/Sea season final: No Way Back.
