Sapphire and Steel 5 – Assignment 5

I forgot my name again too. I can’t remember if I was Kiyan or Dylan.

We’ve trapped ourselves in an old-timey estate house in order to experience this episode to its fullest. We’re actually not sure who else is locked in here with us, I didn’t check to see if the property was vacated before we decided to record in here. I can hear a weird stone statue mouthing off in the basement so that’s pretty weird. It’s Assignment 5, written by Don Houghton and Anthony Read and aired between August 11th and 26th, 1981.


1:27: Check out our Doctor Who podcast, Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast, if you want to listen to us talk about Doctor Who.
30:56: Ok, so apparently ley lines are a way bigger irl deal than I thought they were. I found a few super legit sites like this one and this one that discuss birds and other animals moving and migrating across ley lines. Pretty interesting reads if nothing else.
33:07: I did a little googling about this and didn’t really find anything on it, but I did find this article about what happens when bacteria get viruses. So that’s pretty interesting.
48:12: Yes, apparently bronze does have copper in it.
1:08:26: Check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast, our Blake’s 7 Podcast. Also, the station that St. Clinton originally watched Blake’s 7 on was KTEH (now called KQEH). This station has shown a lot of British sci-fi in the San Francisco Bay Area over the years.
