Default A Quinn Martin Production

I just finished watching The Invaders season 1. I remembered it from when I was a kid of 10 years. Was actually better than I thought it'd be.
Any one else here like the Invaders?

Barry Morse appeared in an episode - "The Life Seekers" (somewhere near the end of the second series).

I've got a Monogram "Invaders UFO" kit somewhere ... have to dig it out ...

Absolutely love The Invaders! Bought both series a few years back but have only watched series one as of the moment. If you have the UK edition you might be experiencing trouble with the on/off subtitling. Episodes 4,7,8, and 9 I think have them. I tried to get Paramount to look into it with a view to replacing the affected discs but they just tried their best to ignore me..

It was good enough.
But, even as a youngster, week after week of everything disintegrating and no proof or evidence left at all, got a bit wearing.
Speak about a reset button!!!

I gave up on it after a while.

ps
All the way across the cosmos.....perfect disguises as humans.....couldn't fix their blimmin' pinkies!!!

I loved that series. I'm trying to locate the name of an actor who played an alien in a few episodes of The Invaders. I remember him as a bystander in The Invaders episode Beechhead, and as an alien bartender and then as an alien soldier in episode Doomsday Minus One. Can any of you guys help please?

Would the IMDB website no give you all the names you need?
Should be able to track him down if his name appears in all those episodes.

Worth a go...

Loved it since first seeing it in the mid-70s. It does get a bit repetitive as he's constantly frustrated in his quest for proof, but the 2nd half of the 2nd series hots up a bit - from 'The Believers' onwards. Possibly the character of Vincent could have lightened up a bit - he's a chip off Kimble's block a lot of the time.

I remember the thrill as a kid of him getting into a saucer - and those great opening titles.

Hi Doomsday. I tried IMDB but with no luck. He's seems to be one of the uncredited actors in The Invaders and IMDB don't have him on record.Thankyou for your help it was worth a try.
