Episode Summary

EDIT
The Inquisition
AIRED:
While relaxing at a smart countryside restaurant during a late evening, Captain Blue, accompanied by Captain Scarlet, starts to feel strange after drinking a cup of black coffee.

When Scarlet issues himself to fetch their coats, Blue instantaneously disappears, and when awakening, finds himself sitting in Lieutenant Green's chair back on Cloudbase, with a Spectrum Intelligence agent, who calls himself Colgan, sitting in Colonel White's chair.

He explains that Blue has been absent without leave for three months, and must prove his identity by disclosing top-security information; the Spectrum cipher codes, before he can return to active duty.

Without having to do this, Captain Blue instead tells the story of three Spectrum assignments involving the Mysterons: the nuclear attack on London, the mission of destroying the Mysteron complex in Crater 101, and the prevention of a Mysteronised Commodore and his aid from slaughtering the Supreme Command of the World Air Force at the Scottish Glen Garry Castle, which wasn't released to the press.

But Colgan still continues to question Blue regarding the cipher codes, whom hasn't caught on the fact that this mysterious S.I. officer is truthfully a Mysteron agent, and the Cloudbase interior a replica of the original, located in an abandoned warehouse.moreless

  • Clip show...

    5.0
    Yep, it's a clip show. Only 11 minutes of new scenes, which aren't great in of themselves, padded out with flashbacks to stuff we've already seen. While I don't hate this episode for being a clip show oe even being quite boring, I do hate it because this is also the Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons series finale. They ended this great series with a clip show. If only they had changed the epsiode order around a little and had Attack on Cloudbase as the finale. Even with it being a dream it would have been a more exciting way to end this awesome series.moreless
  • Captain Scarlet has left the building...

    5.0
    This episode was merely an excuse to revisit past encounters with the Mysterons and so the series ended lamely, which is a great shame.



    NOTES:



    Captains Blue and Scarlet seem to spend a lot of their personal time together during the series - gay subtext, unrequited love? Strings caught up?



    The man with the syringe (laden with a truth drug) doesn't speak. Well, it would be weird if he were cracking jokes at the time...



    The Mysterons were good at fooling Captain Blue into almost revealing the 'cipher codes' - whatever they were - until Scarlett showed up...moreless
