For hundreds of years the human race has looked beyond the stars for extra-terrestrial life. Every new discovery creates a dozen more questions...who would have guessed the answers were now among us? After Saturn 16 crashes back to Earth, ex-astronaut Arthur struggles with an infection. His doctors, friends and family are blind to it's origin but his victims won't be. The Doorway is open - it started in Space, but it ends on Earth. No one is safe in I Am The Doorway. Written by Ross Lanchester
