  • Simon visits a friend in a remote Welsh village, only to find the locals terrorized by recent events.

    4.1
    The House On Dragon's Rock is probably the silliest and least believable Saint episode ever made.



    The episode starts promisingly though with Simon visiting a friend who has asked for his help in discovering the reason for some strange events which occur around the house on Dragon's Rock. A local shepherd is missing, but is soon discovered in a traumatized state and unable to speak. Simon meets the niece of the chief scientist who works at the mysterious house on Dragon's Rock and learn they are carrying out experiments in Genetics.



    Simon pays a visit to the house and comes back convinced that the experiments are the cause of all the trouble. Eventually we learn that the scientist has bred a giant ant, who having laid some eggs will enable ants to rule the world. Simon sets out to kill the ant, the scientist gets killed by the ant, Simon destroys the eggs and saves the world, hurrah!



    Any story that tries to show a monster will inevitably have a problem with trying to make it look realistic. With the sort of budget these shows had it was impossible to make the ant look believable.

    The plot was a standard mad scientist who wants to rule/destroy the world and as such was a cliché.



    Roger Moore directed this episode and to be fair he didn't do a bad job, but silk purses and sows ears spring to mind. Never mind, it was still good fun, well sort of.moreless
