Great to see Stephanie Beacham (Sarah Bosenquet).
As many of you know, she was a Hammer girl. Speaking of which,
I see that Alec was in "The Vengeance of She".
I wasn't as bothered by the technicalities Ron mentions about the
telescope as much as how Sarah had the alien device installed in her
apartment in the first place. Can the aliens manipulate so many
people so easily? Seems like they would be informidable.
Going back to an earlier discussion,
If the alien plan is to use earthlings as organ donors,
why kill everyone?
Wouldn't they at least make another ultimatum as in Psychobombs?
