  • Finally Straker gets a personal life and some character development, although not good ones.

    Most UFO episodes are full of action (at least the excitment of all their toys being used) and skimp on the characters. Straker especially just chews people out & demands more out of them. This story shows us that the job has cost Straker alot (his marriage and estrangement from his son) and will cost him even more. I find it hard to believe the transport with the drugs for his son is the only one available, SHADO usually seems to have countless aircraft around. Secrecy is apparently more important than catching aliens to SHADO. Of course, Straker loses on both counts in perhaps the show's darkest ending. Killing people is one thing but to let a child die? Wouldn't get away with that on a family show now I bet.moreless
