    Can anyone help me with the name of a 1990'S British TV drama, possibly on BBC about aliens in Scotland?



    I seem to recall some RAF soldiers, a female doctor and an American Soldier from Dempsey and Makepeace.



    Thanks,





    Nick

    Nick, was thta film set around an RAF base with Tornadoes operating from it? If so i recall seeing it, and it may have been a mini series. I'll check into it.

    Alternatively, it could be Invasion: Earth. I was thinking Michael Brandon was in it, but actually it was Fred Ward.

    The Uninvited was filmed here in Norfolk and it's plot centred around the submerged village of Dunwich. In the plot aliens took the place of humans they had murdered, Captain Scarlet style. It was a 4 part ITV series but on the dvd it is in two, longer episodes.

    Many thanks for the replies.





    I remember there were Tornadoes and one flies into "something" towards the end.



    I also seem to recall the RAF soldiers becoming infected with some skin complaint and yes it may have been a Mini Series.

    I think you might find that this is just the way the Scots spell Alan i.e Alain. Not from outer space but just a bunch of guys with an extra letter in their name

    If it has Tornadoes in it, then the pilot who flew into the alien structure was Phyllis Logan and the the programme was Invasion: Earth.
