Quatermass - The Complete Series
  • Description

    John Mills brings a stoic intensity to the role of Professor Bernard Quatermass in this key piece of British dystopian fiction from visionary writer Nigel Kneale. Unsettling in its vision of a crumbling society coming under alien attack, Quatermass is directed with characteristic style by BAFTA winner Piers Haggard and features the high production values associated with Euston Films. Shot on 35mm, the original negatives have been used for this stunning, brand-new High Definition restoration – a new 5.1 mix from original triple-track audio elements is also presented here alongside the original mono soundtrack.

    Bernard Quatermass, former head of the British Rocket Group, lives in seclusion in western Scotland, watching in appalled silence as Britain slowly turns into a vision of violence, gang rule and governmental collapse. A desperate search for his missing granddaughter plunges him into a terrifying situation when he comes to realise that the mass disappearance of thousands of youths is nothing less than the culling of the human species by an unknown alien intelligence...

Quatermass - Mass appeal

Back in the late 70's, ITV network were starting up from a debilitating strike, what better than to broadcast on the first night ' Quatermass ',staring the late John Mills. It set the society of the young into rampage. This sci fi serialization was like nothing before and set the scene for others to follow.

Quatermaster

This is, I believe, the third "incarnation" of Professor Quatermass and in my humble opinion the best. A very tight script with terrific acting (mostly) and the quiet British Countryside at its most intriguingly disturbing thanks to a dystopian story. There is a definite lack of the innocence that pervaded the earlier Quatermass stories and it is this that I think makes the series more engaging. I still enjoy the old stories (B&W filmed) but they are not quite the "real deal" as here. Perhaps I should qualify that this Quatermass is a product made for my generation at the time (when Doctor Who was still quite dark and only just slipping into a gentler, amusing version. Children no longer hid behind the couch or Mum to watch it.) and that could be why I really "feel" this story sums up British Dystopian-set TV shows, of which there never really have been many (Crossroads, Corrie and Eastenders were my TV dystopian societies). All in all a series for the older purists as I suspect the "must have it now" generation would find the story's build too slow for them. But I loved it.
