Sapphire And Steel - Series Collection DVD



Complete collection featuring all six seasons from the 1980s sci-fi series starring Joanna Lumley and David McCallum as Sapphire and Steel, the mysterious agents charged with protecting the Universe from the malevolent forces of Time with their uncanny powers. Created by P.J. Hammond. In the first of the three assignments Sapphire and Steel investigate parental disappearance in a strange coastal house; the second sees the ghost of a WWI soldier summon up the spirit of darkness and in the final assignment a couple from the future feel the wrath of Time. Commissioned on the strength of a single episode by writer/creator Peter J Hammond, who was inspired by the time-travel narratives in J.B. Priestley's An inspector Calls and The Time Machine by H.G. Wells. The series was made on a low budget, however, the financial restrictions served to enhance the mystery with empty, shadowy sets and eerie, low-tech special effects. In her memoirs, Joanna Lumley described it as "an absorbing and often terrifying show which I was sad to finish." SAPPHIRE & STEEL was one of the most fascinating shows produced by ITC, no mean feat for the stable that also gave us The Prisoner and Thunderbirds. It aired from 1978 to 1982 on the JTV network but was never repeated on terrestrial television. When the series was first transmitted, the stories were not titled and the episodes not numbered. Even the TV Times could not work out when a story was in its final episode! ASSIGNMENT I (6 episodes) In a cold and remote house by the sea, a young girl has nursery rhymes read to her by her parents. Downstairs her brother does his homework. One by one the clocks stop and then the grown-ups disappear.... ASSIGNMENT 2 (8 episodes) A ghost hunter, Tully, makes contact with the spirit of a WW1 Soldier and in doing so arouses the wrath of Darkness, an evil forces that feeds off the resentment of people who have died prematurely. ASSIGNMENT 3 (6 episodes) A couple from the future occupy a time capsule in the present day. Time, resentful and bitter, begins to menace them, transforming their young child into an adult.
