I enjoyed this story - it certainly played on a far darker theme than the previous story. I think that the characters of Sapphire and Steel are developing well, and it's very easy to picture the original cast - they both represent these characters well.
At the end there is a shock - it works well, but I found Sapphire's involvement a bit out of character. If Steel had been in her place, then it would have been more believeable, but based on what we know about her from a previous televised adventure (don't wanna say too much in case I spoil it!) then I don't think she would been involved in the way that she was.
Elements and themes from the televised adventures are still being borrowed heavily, but I think it is developing well as a series. I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment.

This audio play is far superior to the first Sapphire and Steel CD, The Passenger.
While The Passenger felt like "Sappire and Steel's Greatest Hits", Daisy Chain is original.
The setting is a departure from the usual - a suburan housing estate, but the spirit of the play is match for the original TV series - at turns amusing, frightening and disturbing.
The characterisation of Steel is a bit off - he doesn't seem as smart as in the TV series - but the voice acting is superb.
What's also impressive is David Bishop's skill at using the audio play format to tell the story - mixing in the narrative with TV shows and adverts heard throughout the play.
But what makes this play stand out is the downright traumatising ending. As with the original series, Sapphire and Steel's departure does not mean that everything will be alright.

A lot closer to the original show, in feel and attitude to the subject. Suicide is never an easy subject, but taken in context, it was the natural ending.
One word, about the offered price tag. Someone has a good sense of humour! Fish about, the discs are out there, at a more earthly price of eight pound!!

This audio adventure, the second in the series by Big Finish, is a step away from the traditions of Sapphire & Steel, and a stroll through suburbia. Soap operas, Jerry Springer style chat shows, and cheapo advertisements all feature. While the story, as a whole, functions quite well, the smaller details become annoying (a certain music box tune is overused, and promotes giggles). Strangest of all, is Steel's characterisation. There are hints at controversy in some acts, which sit uncomfortably with the lighter material. A good editor could have snipped these, and other more flabby scenes, to create a much more worthy release.
But, overall, this is nice oddment to add to your Sapphire & Steel collection.
Looking forward to All Fall Down!
