Episode Summary

EDIT
Quatermass and the Pit: The Halfmen
AIRED:
A building site at Hobbs Lane in London unearths a human skull, which is estimated by Dr Matthew Roney to be five million years old. Roney sets up a dig at the site. Quatermass, to his fury, is told that his Rocket Group will be merged with the military under Colonel Breen. Breen is called in by Captain Potter when a strange projectile, possibly a bomb, is found at the dig. Quatermass gets involved, and realises whatever it is, it is five million years old.moreless

    This was the best and cleverest of all the Quatermass serials (no small claim) and the one that deals with the biggest and most mind-blowing ideas. Suppose that, many millions of years ago, beings from outer space visited the earth and that some of them stayed - has what we call "the human race" evolved from these visitors? And why did they stay here? Professor Quatermass's investigations lead to amazing and deeply sobering conclusions. Andre Morell was the third of five actors to play Quatermass on television (and two more played him in movie versions), but he remains easily the best-remembered. Over fifty years after first transmission, this provocative drama remains a true classic.moreless
