Storyline

Aliens attempt to destroy a naval ship dumping toxic waste into the ocean but their craft is shot down. Straker is surprised to read the news of the incident as it was not a SHADO operation, and goes to see Admiral Sheringham at the Admiralty. Sheringham is not co-operative and Straker suspects a cover-up. He sends Foster to see if he can get more information from Sarah, the Admiral's secretary. Written by don @ minifie-1

Phillip Madoc
5 May 2020 | by statto-56592See all my reviews

Seems odd that Phillip Madoc would play two different characters in episodes that were filmed only 3 months apart.

Did they expect the viewers not to remember?
