This DVD has the complete and unedited episodes and includes the original "End of Part One/Part Two" captions. The picture is very clear although the sound is still in mono.
There are two commentaries from the creator/writer and producer, a nice booklet to read about the shows history and a 25 minute documentary that interviews Lumley, McCallum and the producers about why it was successful and who they think Sapphie and Steel really were.
This show maybe slow for today's audience but the fact its tightly written and each assignment set in an isolated place (Train Station, Garage cafe, house) makes it more effective and spooky. My personal favourite will always be Assignment 4 with the Faceless man and the photos.
Then of course theres the end. Shame we never had a resolution to the cliffhanger at the end of Assignment 6 but great shows always go out with a great ending.

I have fond memories of Sapphire and Steel from childhood (originally broadcast 1979-1982)and watching this brings it all back for me. In fact the entire series has already been released on DVD (comprising six stories in all) but I'm pleased to say this version is far superior, certainly in terms of picture quality. I don't know if it's been digitally remastered (there's nothing in the packaging mentioning this and the sound definitely sounds like mono) but the picture on this Network release is significantly better than the Carlton one. There's some nice extras too including a documentary (admittedly rather short) and a wealth of photos from each "assignment". I also like the way that they've kept the "End of Part One" / "Part Two" bits for some of the assignments (gives you time to go and make a cuppa) and the "ATV" logo/intro as well (I kept expecting it to break into the "Crossroads" theme tune though). Nostalgia ahoy!
What about the programme itself? For the uninitiated, the best way to describe Sapphire and Steel is as a kind of UK precursor to the "X Files". Sapphire and Steel are two detectives from another place and time (we never DO find out their precise origins!), assigned to investigate "breaks in time" and related to this, various supernatural and unexplained events. As Sapphire describes it, "Time" is like a corridor, populated by creatures and "beings" who are constantly looking for ways to break into the present day and cause trouble. Elements from the past - e.g. old photographs, a ghost from World War 1 haunting a railway station, even something as simple as a child's nursery rhyme - act as triggers which allow the creatures to break through. And that's where S & S come in!Read more ›
