Did You Know?

Trivia

The only link to the original BBC series is Dr Spencer Quist, the Nobel Prize-winning mathematician and nuclear physicist who had been director of the Department of Observation and Measurement of Scientific Work (Doomwatch). He was played by John Paul but as the actor had died in 1995, the character was recast. See more »

Goofs

The credit "Based on the television series created by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davies" is misspelled: the co-creator's name was Gerry Davis. See more »

Alternate Versions

The 2011 Boulevard Entertainment DVD release differs from the original Channel 5 broadcast version, and is perhaps a slightly earlier cut: the opening originating credit is "Based on the television series created by Kit Pedlar and Gerry Davies" instead of "Based on the television series created by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davies", and "Special thanks to National Power and Littlebrook Power Station" instead reads "Special thanks to Powergen and Littlebrook Power Station". The DVD also closes with an onscreen credit for Universal which did not feature on transmission. See more »

If there had been a real doomwatch this would have been caught in the making
13 January 2006 | by thnielsSee all my reviews

Okay, it had its moments. The plot, or rather the idea behind the plot was pretty good. The science talk seemed slightly more scientific than usual (Well, not being a rocket scientist, for all I know they could have been exchanging formulas for melted butter - but it sounded right in the first part of the movie). Some of the acting even appeared okay. But then it all ends. Introducing a computer wiz never actually doing any wizzing other than shouting commands at his homebuilt and amazingly awkward computer system. Hacking into what was clearly analog CCTV!? Not to mention camera angles requiring surveillance cameras literally all over the place. Why did Mr. Fulton send Luke through a hole but Teri over the fence instead? How do you get nuclear material into a tokamak without shutting it down? And then at last; a climax as exciting as a flat tire. No, this is definitely a colossal waste of even the dullest evening.
