From Out Of The Rain - S2-E10

Trivia: For this episode, writer Peter J. Hammond borrowed his own idea - from a story he first used in the 1979 Sapphire & Steel series.

Mistakes

When the children are possessed by the 456, they're supposed to be frozen and stare blankly ahead. But during the second possession, as the camera is panning across a school playground, a boy on the far right is looking directly at it.
