recalled from childhood
29 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

I vividly recall the opening sequence, with shots of a ship on which were only sprawled bodies. No memory of the plot, but as a ten/eleven year old I did feel that this was superior and decidedly sinister, with a deep mystery at its heart. The plot summary suggests that the series was fantasy - I had thought that the story involved more some sort of mutant tarantula or black widow, with human agency in spreading it for nefarious purposes. Anyway, there were several quite impressive TV SF serials and series at this time in the UK other than the famous Quatermass and A for Andromeda... I also recall a serial involving subsonic control (Undermind?), another one with radio telescopes and some sort of replication of people, and a series featuring dramatisations of Dick and other luminaries. To my mind even then these were superior to Dr Who and the like!
