I have very vague memories of Sapphire and Steel – as a small child, I found it just plain weird, but as an adult, this bizarre time travelling series might well prove a lost classic.
It’s being reissued as Sapphire and Steel The Complete Series Special Edition, with Joanna Lumley and David McCallum starring in the title roles as two superhuman agents, assigned to safeguard the structure of Time, using their powers to protect block evil forces from the past and future. It was written by PJ Hammond, the man behind the excellent Ace Of Wands, reason enough to give it a second chance.
The new DVD set also features a new documentary about the show, image galleries, original paperwork and scripts and the designer’s original floor plans in PDF format.
Expect it from 5th November, priced at £59.99.
