Strange World of Planet X, The

1 9 5 6 (UK)
6 x 30 minute episodes

Scientists discover a formula that gives them access to the fourth dimension – the unification of time and space – and transports them to the arid Planet X.

This six-part drama was produced by ATV and written by Rene Ray.

The Guardian commented in October 1956 that perhaps the episodes had been aired “backwards and in the wrong order, so little sense do they make”. The Observer called the series, “a kind of poor man’s Quatermass produced on the cheap”.
