  • Malign extra-terrestrials seek to take over the earth, adopting human form.

    9.0
    This BBC serial predated the classic Hollywood movie "Invasion Of The Body Snatchers" by a year and has a rather similar idea, but one that is developed even more subversively. Having assumed human form, the extra-terrestrials manage to avoid any kind of outside investigative interference from us earthlings by the simple and sure-fire process of invoking "national security" as an all-purpose excuse. Heard that one recently? Shortly before Nigel Kneale died, some of his admirers suggested that he be given his own programme as a pundit and that it be entitled "I Told You So". And he did tell us, didn't he?moreless
