Fire at Rig 15 is the typical, and rather dull, 'Mysterons destroy something and Spectrums runs about' story. This time it's an oil rig but it could just as easily be a submarine base or high security installation which makes it hard to care abut what's going on. Treble Cross, however, has a more interesting plot premise - what happens when the Mysterons fail to kill their subject - but it's still a little slow.

If Treble Cross is slow then Flight 104 must qualify as torpid. So little happens that it's a miracle the episode lasts 25 minutes. However, the final episode on the tape, Place of Angels, picks up the pace and although it's not a great plot - a killer virus gets stolen - there's a reasonable sense of tension and some sharp direction.

Great picture, great sound, sadly average content.
