Thus the series begins to explore the possibilities: Fawkes poses as a child's imaginary friend to get information; he stalks a stalker; and, of course, he does a lot of spying. In the background of the individual stories is a constant build-up of tension as both the audience and Fawkes wonder where the Agency's loyalties lie and what the constant use of the Quicksilver may do to him. At the midway point of the first series, the show adds an even weirder twist when a suspected additional Invisible Man turns out to be Fawkes himself, channelling the memories and violent temperament of the first test subject to have hosted the gland. Unpredictable and engaging, this is a show that deserved to go beyond the mere two years it managed before cancellation.
On the DVD: The Invisible Man comes to DVD in a four-disc box set containing the first half of Series 1. Some weblinks and scripts of shows are accessible as DVD-ROM features, but the real score for the DVD's producers is an hour-long interview with cast members Vincent Ventresca, Paul Ben-Victor and Michael McCafferty. Much more is promised for the next box set comprising the second half of the series. --Paul Tonks

Who would have thought you could make a good version of the invisible man? This is it though, the main thing is that for the first time the explanation is ~believable. Read morePublished on 10 Nov. 2004 by Mr. Robert Lucien Howe
