Arby stops Sky from engaging in battle with the newly arrived figure in the forest, but they are picked up by the police, who press breaking/entering and assault charges against Sky because of his encounter with Roy’s father. Sky uses his ability to influence the mind of others to convince the police sergeant to release him. There is another brief encounter with the shadowy figure from the forest, convincing Sky that not only is he in danger, but Arby, Jane and Roy are in danger due to their contact with him.

Notes: The 2″ master videotape of this episode suffered critical damage in the 1990s, and is represented on DVD by a VHS backup copy of noticeably lower quality. David Jackson (1934–2005) would go on to play freedom fighter Gan, a member of the Liberator crew during the first two seasons of the BBC’s space opera Blake’s 7.
