Although rather uneventful and a little dull to begin with, once this story gets going it turns into a compelling and unexpectedly original tale of immortality at a price. There's a surprising but welcome amount of continuity with other Sapphire and Steel stories (both Big Finish and TV) and ultimately this proves to be a spooky, strange and disturbing winner.

Lots of interesting and intriguing ideas fail to gel into a cohesive storyline. On the plus side, the inclusion of Silver proves charming as ever and the regulars are on good form. Unfortunately the fatal lack of spooky atmosphere (which is essential to Sapphire & Steel in my opinion) means this falls on the side of blandness and only barely holds interest all the way through.

An intriguing and atmospheric theatre-set story with the wonderful addition of Lisa Bowerman as new agent; Ruby. Although it begins well unfortunately the story drags in the middle with repetitive scenes of the main characters trapped in unreal scenarios and a lack of real menace. The first episode also seems to be setting up a fascinating plot revolving around a previously unseen S&S adventure but unfortunately this isn't the main thread of the story. Thankfully the final episode does provide a decent conclusion which ends on a haunting note. Nice also to see some wacky PJ Hammond-ish ideas about time and music included.

One of the best of BF's Sapphire & Steel range. An intriguing and original premise for a S&S story with an unusual emphasis on the Elements rather than supporting humans. Excellent performances and a particular treat to begin the story with Silver and Gold assigned. Although the threat, when revealed is a little too abstract in nature to have real impact, the twists and turns among the main characters make this a gripping story. As good as some of the other writers are, Steve Lyons was the best at capturing the feel of the TV show while also pushing the boundaries of what the series could be.
