Hardware and hokum in heaped measures launched this sci-fi series into fresh realms, for British television at least. Artfully filmed on location, with a battery of special effects and a host of men and machines, it delivers action along with an absorbing plotline.
Last week's opening episode closed with an alien attack under way, and now repeated contact pushes the story into new dimensions. More trigger-happy servicemen go to war, but none can match the ruthlessness of scientist Amanda Tucker (Maggie O'Neill) or the aggression of Squadron Leader Knox (Phyllis Logan).
Chris Drake's (Vincent Regan) attempts to find out more about the alien pilot only pose fresh riddles. But the gruesome sight of alien operations leave no doubts about the seriousness of the threat they pose.
