Department S Episode 14: The Man from X

Department S_The Man From X Title Shot

Out on one of the kissy filled “in my car” dates and a man appears in a spacesuit, walking towards you but he’s struggling to reach you all but to collapse and die out on the street. This is a mystery that luckily Department S are called out to investigate and certainly a mystery to bring all the sorts of elimination in their detecting. Why is this dead man in a spacesuit? It becomes an intriguing quest to find out how and why a spaceman has died on the streets of London.

Personal Synopsis

A fantastic story to keep the spy-fi enthusiast happy a few days. I really enjoy the originality of this story and much praise can be handed to the writer Tony Williamson for his step into the suitable style of a spy-fi tv show but giving the audience an ingenius story. Jason King is quite flamboyant but its strange how he can pull off being cool. This episode is quite entertaining for me and is certainly a good watch.
