    Apologies for another 'What's the name of this TV series' thread but this has been bugging me for a while.

    Can anyone help to name this TV series. It was probably late seventies/early eighties (I stopped hiding behind the sofa soon after). :D

    Possibly starring Martin Jarvis (or the bloke I always confuse him with) but IMDB doesn't realy help.

    A 'creature' is terrorising a small scottish island - cue lot's of dry ice etc. This goes on for a while and then they discover a crashed futuristic plane. It turns out the 'creature' is a Russian pilot who had his brain 'wired' into the experimental plane to control it.

    When it crashed he suffered brain damage from pulling out the wires that turned him into a zombie like thing.

    I didn't say it was any good but would love to see it again.

    Cheers
    Kevin.

    Yes, remember this one well. A good 'un!

    It was a short serial of about three or four episodes if I remember rightly.

    I recently ran a thread on the "Nightmare Man" as it was shown at the NFT. I went along to see it and was surprised how well it stood up. Like so many drama's of that time, it was very much charactor and dialogue driven. Very enjoyable.
