and Steel ADVENTURE
What is happening in the room at the top of the stairs? Strange goings
on (people disappear and find themselves trapped in a picture on the wall)
when a small child recites nursery rhymes. Having created a situation
which Sapphire and Steel could clear up in episode one, the writer then
had to stretch the story. The answer was to include an irritating child
who, once the consequences of her actions was explained, lost no opportunity
to elude the vigilance of the grown-ups and set to reciting with the determination
of an Infant Phenomenon. Both Sapphire and Steel are endangered, and their
comrade, Lead, terminated, before Time is repaired and our heroes leave
for their next adventure. The scene was set for mysterious goings on;
Time being "out of joint"; dangers the more fascinating for never being
fully explained. In a cleverly handled scene, we discover Sapphire and
Steel have telepathic powers.
This episode contains
one of the most engaging characters to appear in Sapphire and Steel,
Lead. As well as Sapphire and Steel themselves, the other elements are
strongly cast throughout.
