Sapphire & Steel charted the efforts of two mysterious ‘agents’, named Sapphire (Joanna Lumley) and Steel (David McCallum), as they were given a number of ‘assignments’. featuring everything from a faceless man and a vengeful soldier, to living nursery rhymes and a time-trapped motorway cafe.

The series was innovative, intelligent and terrifying, and it has stayed in the memories of all who saw it.

    I just wanted to drop you a note to say how much I enjoyed recently reading the Sapphire & Steel guidebook you published. As a long-time fan of the show, it was a treasure trove of information and insight. I found it very well researched and well written with the analyses of each story being a highlight in teasing out the implications of every little detail. Also, the cover was perfectly designed in conveying the creepiness of the series while (I presume) not being able to feature any of the leading cast. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for publishing such a great book and I know it will be one I’ll return to frequently over many years. Keep up the good work!
