The Visitors have returned and their spaceship has been souped up and been brought into the twentieth century. The episode introduces the main the characters, the Priest, the Cop, the undercover Visitors and the Visitors themselves. Like the original, they claim to be our friends but still plan to enslave us. Good, at least the re-imaging didn't change this. The Fifth Column organisation is alive and well and we get to be introduced to their new Martin/Philip/Willie characters. Whereas the original series + final battle was ten hours of viewing time, this new series will run and run for sometime. The militaristic red suits have gone, in comes a more subtle blue and grey suits.
