The Invaders: The TV Series
The Invaders: The Nightmare Has Already Begun
The Invaders: Alien beings from a dying planet. Their destination : The Earth.
Their purpose : To make it their world.
David Vincent (Roy Thinnes) has seen them. For him it began one lost night on a lonely country road, looking for a short-cut that he never found. It began with a closed, deserted diner...and a man too long without sleep to continue his journey. It began with the landing of a craft from another galaxy.
Now, David Vincent knows that the Invaders are here, that they have taken human form. Somehow he must convince a disbelieving world that the nightmare has already begun.
So began the cult 60s sci-fi show , which ran in the US at the same time as Star Trek and for my money included better story lines, suspense, drama and cliffhangers - oh, and some really spooky music. The Invaders
The Opening Credits
An Introduction to The Invaders
The Invaders aired in the US for two seasons between January 1967 and March 1968 and reflected the major public concern of the time: the paranoia of 'Reds under the Bed' brought on at the height of the Cold War.
The series was also influenced by America's first missions into space which made ordinary people think about the possibility of contact with life from other planets.
The Invaders revolves around the character of David Vincent (played by Roy Thinnes), who has discovered that the Earth is being invaded by beings from another planet. These beings have taken human form, and are virtually undetectable from humans.

Seasons 1 and 2 on DVD
Long overdue and finally making a very welcome debut on DVD is, in my opinion, the greatest science fiction series ever made. Pure paranoia, an adrenalin rush of epic proportions and the great Roy Thinnes endeavoring to stop the onslaught of a full out alien invasion - with the added edge of no one believing him!
I love every minute and episode of this fantastic show. Anyone who has never seen this classic series, take my word for it, buy it! You won't regret it. A classic in every sense of the word.
