role of Dr Briscoe. It was performed and broadcast live on BBC Four, just as the original was broadcast live. It was

An astronaut is infected by an alien pathogen during a space mission, of which he is the only survivor.

who designed his spacecraft, and sent him to his doom, Professor Bernard Quatermass.
