When we left the Stranger (Colin Baker) in Breach of Peace, he was forced by Egan (David Troughton) and Saul (John Wadmore) to lead the way into the Web, to leave earth behind and get back to their dimension ... but that doesn't work properly, and thus the three of them are spat out at a top secret research facility where ruthless gouvernment official Sheila (Alison Troughton) and scientist Hunter (Geoffrey Beevers) train Meta (Bernadette Gepheart), a young woman with ESP-powers to mindcontrol (enemy-)computers. Somehow though, her ESP-powers have found a way into the Web, and the Web doesn't like that one bit, creates a couple of indestructible zombie soldiers and gives Egan and Saul a new assignment, to kill Meta. That's easier said than done though, since Egan, who has always resented humankind, has since fallen in love with Meta (and she with him), and now would do everything to defend her, even against Saul, whom the Stranger eventually sends off into the Web to keep the whole affair under control himself. Problem is of course that no matter how you put it, Meta has to die, and even she herself becomes aware of that eventually - and in the end, when the zombies are already attacking Egan, who won't give her up, it falls upon the Stranger to shoot Meta (at her request, since she finds herself unable to shoot herself) ... even if killing a human is something he has sworn to never do again.

 

Nicely written conclusion to the Stranger-series that manages to tie up most of the loose ends and actually give it's villain-characters from The Terror Game and Breach of Peace some substance when actually teaming them up with the Stranger for better or worse. That said, one can't help but notice several shortcomings of the episode caused by its miniscule budget, like the research facility being nothing but an old house in a country, its science lab consisting of nothing more than a personal computer, and the army defending it consisting of a mere half dozen soldiers, but in a way that's just nit-picking, as despite all of this, the story still works reasonably well and is at least a nice piece of science fiction - one that probably doesn't make much sense without having seen The Terror Game and Breach of Peace first, but then again, that's the nature of a series, right?
