Just thought I'd like to make it clearer that this version of Quatermass is, in fact, the 1979 TV version. It is a two disk box set which includes all 4 episodes on one disk and then the theatrical version and a documentary about stonehenge on the other disk. From the heading this isnt exactly clear, despite the photograph being of a box depicting John Mills. Why is the date for this 1979 in the first set of brackets and then 1955 in the second and why is the cast list from the 1955 version listed?

So if you are looking for the 1979 version, as I was, fondly remembered from my childhood ( embedded in my memory from when i was eight years old!) then this is the one. Really glad I found it at last!

First, just in case you need confirmation after the first reviewer told you - this is the 1979 TV version, distributed in the USA by A&E and through another distributor to you most likely.

Now - as for giving it a 5 star rating. Nigel Kneale definitely deserved to continue his great work. It's easy to get picky about these things sometimes - it's a question of expectations. You loved the earlier stuff and so you expect the next one to transport you to another planet where you'll exist in eternal bliss - or you'll be disapointed. I'm too old to get caught up in that. Kneale brought a new dimension to this one - possibly due to the insight of greater life experience - but it's the real genuine item. By the end, I was blown away.

Two things. Why is this wonderful DVD so much cheaper than the others listed? Also, I must state that I am a huge fan of Kneale, and feel that Q and the Pit is among the best Sci Fi ever and the the BBC TV serial has never been beaten. However, having said that there are so many negatives and positives about this last tale that I don't know where to start. Of course its all personal opinion, but perhaps worth sharing. First as I usually do, let's talk quality. Excellent Original Thames TV prints, and I think uncut. The cinema version and Stonehenge doc are for once worthy extras. That said, why do I have such mixed feelings about this? The negatives...I can't help thinking there is a better script waiting in the wings. This seems a bit hit and miss- We never really get into Q's quest for his granddaughter (I never knew he was married!!). Some of the characters are just so badly written-The Planet People are just ridiculous and all hopelessly overact. AS for the "Nursery Rhyme" they all chant- couldn't someone come up with something a bit more sinister? That underused actress Barbara Kellerman has little to do and her disapearence is, I think, mishandled. BUT..where Kneale really scores is his bleak portrayal of cities ravaged by out of control gangs, no go areas, private police etc. Come on, we aren't that far away from that now. Also the basic theme/plot is vintage Kneale and does keep you enthralled except I felt the ending botched a bit. Mills does his best as do most of the rest of the cast. As a Qutaermass completist I am delighted to add this to complete my collection of the entire available output. I hope no one objects to such a long list of negs and positive, it's cos I care . Despite my misgivings I heartily recomend this for intelligent Tv. It's not perfect but it's the last of it's kind-So 4 stars.
