Sapphire And Steel Assignment 3

Sapphire And Steel Assignment 3-5
You thought I hadn't noticed what happened right at the end of episode 1, didn't you?I mean, that the soldier - the main soldier that is, amongst the mass of resentful deceased humanity - did make an appearance on the platform, to us while Sapphire was aware of something happening.I suppose the criticism has to remain that this assignment's story moves at the pace of a very elderly debilitated snail, & in fact consists of a story that certainly doesn't need to be stretched out over eight episodes, I think it could even be a single hour-long drama.

The entire effect of this episode is to make the viewer want to know what's going on, prompted by the hints that the soldier wants 'us' (the viewer is cleverly included here, it doesn't give the impression at all that he only wants to talk to Sapphire & Steel) to know something, which in turn makes us want to know what it is.

Towards the end of the episode the differing clues given about times, & the changing hints given about places, increase the viewer's curiosity.

This forms the recap in episode two (it is at this point the titles start), & I deliberately didn't mention it in my last post, in which I focussed more on Tully, wanting to bring the soldier up as a new subject in this post.

The sequence in which Sapphire describes the day she is experiencing is incredibly effective, more so given that the effect is largely created by Sapphire's narration & sound effects, with no other special effects.

I want to say that the slowness of this assignment reflects the painstaking nature of a ghost investigation, & the way in which the restless resentful dead cannot be rushed.

I even want to say that the pacing would seem different when watched on a one-episode-per-week (or day) basis, without pausing or seeing it again, as it would have been watched originally.

Tully's world view seems to be alternative enough, since he volunteers the opinion that Sapphire & Steel communicate by thought transference, but Sapphire delineates their even more alternative view to him - this is plainly background for the audience - & he just wants to know more.

I feel this scene doesn't work that well, I'm not convinced a relatively lengthy explanation works at this point.

Sapphire & Steel actually do a good hard cop/soft cop here, I don't need to say which is which.

The need for Tully is also apparent in this scene, since his sympathy for the poor lad, whom Steel tells him is evil, is a nice foil for Sapphire & Steel's more disinterested investigation of the station.
