Editorial Reviews

H.G. Wells’ classic tale of suspense and intrigue from the 1950s. A highly secret laboratory experiment that goes awry turns Dr. Peter Brady into the Invisible Man! Unable to return to a visible state, Brady is enlisted as the ultimate British secret agent. For years, the identity of the Invisible Man was a well-kept secret. More than one actor portrayed the physical character, while another supplied the voice. The special effects (advanced for their time) ran the gamut from making objects float gracefully through the air to creating a riderless motorcycle. The Invisible Man, Season 1 includes 13 remastered episodes.

When this series made its debut in the late 50's it was an instant hit with TV audiences in both the UK and in America. As part of a publicity campaign, the name of the actor who played Dr. Peter Brady was Tim Turner (replete with bandages), but was not revealed until 1965 to keep the audiences guessing. The show boasts of some really fabulous special effects for the day; for example, a cigarette that lights and smokes itself and wine drunk from a glass by an "invisible" drinker. Many of the episodes refect the political climate of the Cold War; Peter Brady often is called to thwart the evil designs of foreign spies or assist a friend of a friend who is being blackmailed keeping with a theme similar to "The Saint." A complete set of all the episodes are available thru AmazonUK, but this is a good starter set for those who like vintage British sci-fi television with a twist. The astute observer will notice many fine UK actors in guest spots on this series who would later appear on many other well known ITC programs such as "Danger Man," "Secret Agent," and "The Prisoner."

For this to have been done years ago, the special effects are great. Every now and then your can see a wire, but each segment has a great plot, and is well executed by the director and the actors. Great Series to have in a collection!

Format: DVD
H.G. Wells' Invisible Man Original Series is a bit of a disappointment on DVD. First of all there's no extras at all, the episode menu does tell you when each episode first aired in the 1950s but this is the only trivia you'll get from the DVD. Which is a shame because a lot of questions go unanswered, primarily, why was this series called H.G. Wells' invisible man when it has nothing at all to do with his invisible man character (Griffin), is not set in the same place and has nothing at all to do with that storyline. Is the title just cashing in on the success of Wells' novel and the 1930's movie (which was very good by the way) and the subsequent movies of his other novels like War of Worlds and so on? A bit misleading title for the series if this is the case and one which no doubt will cause disappointment if this is the reason you are purchasing.

I didn't buy this because it was based on H.G. Wells novel though so that point didn't bother me, I'm a huge fan of the invisible man genre but have to say was pretty disappointed with this show. I had ordered the second series but cancelled it after watching the first disc of season one. The series does show its age in parts with pretty poor acting from some of the support cast (especially the little girl he lives with) and specific episode characters. Poor casting such as middle eastern people being played by white people with bad fake accents make it more of a comedy viewing than it was obviously intended to be.

The basic plot is that Dr Peter Brady a scientist has successfully turned lab animals invisible. A lapse of attention one day, he turns himself invisible and flees the laboratory when they try and contain him.
