All-existing episodes of the iconic BBC 1970s cult sensation, that regularly attracted over 12 million viewers.

BBC series investigating the dangers of new technologies and modern political, environmental and scientific threats to society. Starring John Paul, Simon Oates and Robert Powell.

Doomwatch is the name of the Department of Measurement of Scientific Work. Under the oversight of Nobel Prize winning physicist, Dr. Spencer Quist, the Doomwatch team struggle to keep an eye on world affairs, and advise the government and private research sectors in order to prevent disasters occurring through the misuse of technology and scientific discoveries.

Such dangers the team face across the three series range from a plastic eating bacteria to hyper intelligent rats, mind destroying sound waves to toxic waste and genetic mutations.

The Doomwatch team initially consisted of Quist; former intelligence agent, Dr. John Ridge; eager young researcher Toby Wren; technician and computer specialist Colin Bradley; and secretary Pat Hunnisett.

If you are a fan of Black Mirror, you should check out the original "what-if" series about technology gone wrong.

"Doomwatch remains an incredible viewing experience, just as relevant and likeable as it was back when it was brand new." - Sci Fi Now
