  • Sapphire And Steel

    Today I bought first two episodes of S&S in DVD.
    Do anybody of you remember this serial tv from '80?
    I loved them since I saw S&S in our tv in 81 ( I was a boy then ) and I have ever found in this tv movies some ideas about Time and time traveling like "chrono flux" of the Multiverse.
    I'd like to know what do you think about

    I remember watching this. Even at the time, I recall thinking it a strange premise to base a tv series on. Still watched every episode, though.

    I don't remember very many details, but didn't they have a rather dramatic way of appearing?
    You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

      Yes Gov you remember right.
      Sapphire and Steel looks like humans but they are "someone" of supernatural sent on our earth to control temporal anomalies.
      Thier "chief" is a strange dark cloacked figure at the beginning of every episode but we don't know anything about these "alien" entities.
      Steel was roled by David McCallum and Joanna Lumley as Sapphire.
      May be Mike could remember this serial?

        Big Finish, who produce Doctor Who audio adventure CDs with the 5th, 6th, 7th & 8th Doctors, also make a Sapphire & Steel range of audio CDs, although sadly not with the original cast of Lumley & McCallum. Instead the roles of S&S are played by Susannah Harker and David Warner.

        There are 6 CDs available of which the one above is the latest.

        _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
        _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
        _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

            Didn't they name a few other 'agents' in the opening titles? And I'm sure that 'Lead' appeared along with someone else in one of the episodes.

              Indeed...

              All irregularities will be handled by the forces controlling each dimension. Transuranic, heavy elements may not be used where there is life. Medium atomic weights are available: Gold, Lead, Copper, Jet, Diamond, Radium, Sapphire, Silver and Steel. Sapphire and Steel have been assigned.

                In the movies are also Lead ( first episode ) who give Steel the regards of Silver and Jet ( if I remember right ) and in the last episode may be there is just Silver, but I'm not sure

                  Thanks guys. I'd like to say it's all coming back to me but I'd be lying.

                  I do remember that intro, though, David. (Now that you mention it. )
