  • Space Hippies with a shock ending!!!

    This is an interesting episode in that we don't have any nasty aliens to contend with. The alien beings that meet the Alpha crew are an advanced and peaceful race - so where's the fun in that? Well kudos to writer in that he has made a script that entertains you through your own fears & imagination. You get the continuous feeling they are up to something! The demise of the Commissioner is particulary shocking; ones imagination can only run riot on his fate - supposing there is oxygen readily supplied to that box... This one also stars the great Christopher Lee in a role that only he could play. A tall, mysterious & imposing being which predates his Role as Gandalf in the hair stakes by some 25 years.
