Trivia

Made by an independent production company in response to calls for programming for the newly announced ITV network in Britain. The network itself did not start broadcasting until 1955 by which time the majority of episodes had been completed and were ready for broadcast. It was also one of the first UK television productions to be shown in the US. See more »

User Reviews

 
It's so watchable.
20 December 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

What an enjoyable series this is, 26 episodes of thoroughly enjoyable, entertaining drama.

There is a real variety here, from straight laced, traditional murder mystery, to espionage drama to pretty much pure science fiction.

I personally like the more traditional mystery, The Invisible knife is a favourite, blending various different genres, it's very, very good.

It surprises me that the series exists in its entirety, and that's wonderful, it's just a shame that a second series wasn't made.

Karloff is truly watchable, he's so good as the charismatic Colonel, he's well supported in particular by Ewan Roberts and Eric Pohlmann, but it's Karloff that stands out.

A joy to watch, 8/10.
