So they add in a new mystery to make up for this which strangely calms the situation while also putting you even more on edge as you know something has to be wrong here, and of course there is.
Now I’m going to move on to the ending and if you haven’t seen the story yet then I suggest you go watch it before reading this part especially as you really should go into this unsuspecting of it to get the full experience.
He is a good man and the character you really do sympathise with and get attached to the most.
It’s also nice and quite convenient from a plot perspective that he is a very open minded man which means he is quickly able to accept Sapphire and Steel and their abilities (which again are not used as much as last time).
It then starts to dip a bit here in the horror aspects of it as we move into the next episode where they wake up twelve days in the future but it adds a new layer of mystery to the story to make up for this.
It could be viewed as a cheap solution to a spectacular cliff-hanger but I think it’s unfair to view it as such and also anything that followed something like that up would be viewed as cheap in comparison.I’ll go into more about what he does later but I will say that he takes cold and detached to a whole new level.Finally we have Mr George Tully who is a ghost hunter at the railway station Sapphire and Steel are investigating.The creature itself in this story is feeding off the resentment of the dead and is using an abandoned railway station as a rallying ground for those who died unjustly.This provides a basic premise for a story which really does feature lots of scares and dark imagery.It has moments that make you jump, like when Sapphire walks out a room and is suddenly confronted with the soldier, and moments that leave you on the edge of your seat, like when the darkness creeps in and consumes the room around Tully.There are so many of these moments that I could go on all day but instead I’m just going to pick out a couple.One that was very well done was when Steel was sitting on the chair listening to a recording when suddenly he is experiencing the pilot’s death and the room around him begins to shake and turn and it very much feels like he’s in a plane but still in that room.It’s not really the scene itself but Steel’s reaction, as he’s a character who has never been visually scared before it’s shocking to see his face full of fear and that really sells the scene from me.He is often left in the dark by Sapphire and Steel and they often, Steel especially, treat him quite badly which makes it all the more surprising that he insists on staying there to help them.Inhabiting the railway station we have a group of ghosts who were brought there by the Darkness to feed it.
