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.

A post-apocalyptic San Francisco is the intriguing environment for this darkly absorbing psycho-drama. Unfortunately Sapphire and Steel are given little to do in the first 3 and a half parts (which, considering this is the series finale, feels wrong to me). The remainder of the story wraps up the investigators' story in a way which felt repetitive and unoriginal. Ultimately quite an unsatisfying story which is a shame because there's a lot of good material here, not to mention a stand-out performance by Louise Jameson.
