5.0 out of 5 stars See the Original Invisible Man. 11 Nov 2007
By Armchair Pundit VINE VOICE
This most seminal of stories has given birth to many inferior versions too numerous to count, but it takes the BBC once again to be faithful to the original masterwork.
The underlying theme of which stresses that, not all scientific discoveries are beneficial to mankind.
The eponymous character is a brilliant but obsessive researcher, who's experiments in Optical Densities lead him eventually into a downward spiral of crime, violence and Death.
Although made in 1984 the special effects are rather good, the scenes of Griffin becoming Invisible, layer by layer are worthy of a big budget film.
This is as close as you'll get if you haven't read the book.
And if not why not? it's excellent.
Produced by Barry Letts, screenplay by Terrance Dicks.
Story first publised 1897.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not seen very often 5 Oct 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Largely forgotten but very faithful adaptation of HG Wells' classic late Victorian book, produced by the BBC in 1984. Comprised of six 25 minute episodes with an accompanying booklet which even includes details such as viewing figures for each episode.
The special effects aren't ultra sophisticated but are usually convincing and quite often highly effective. Laden with an atmosphere of doom, you know the fear and hostility this 'abomination against nature' provokes wherever he goes, will pay the price.
I paid 4, a bargain, and thoroughly enjoyed the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 29 Oct 2012
By Felix
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The DVD I bought is a wonderful BBC classic: The invisible Man.

First of all I have to say that I was happily surprised how fast I got my product. It took only three days from checkout to my door, which is in Germany. So thank you for that.

The DVD-Box was in perfect shape. The contents was what was expected, not more not less:
a nice collectors booklet, which tells the story of the creation process of this TV show and the DVD itself.

To put it simple: perfect price/performance ratio.
