The Benji and Nick Show – Quatermass and the Pit

Coming soon in The Benji and Nick Show, Benji, Nick and Shelley have been watching the 1967 science fiction horror film, Quatermass and the Pit. The film, which is largely faithful to the TV series, centres on the discovery of a mysterious object buried at the site of an extension to the London Underground. Also uncovered nearby are the remains of early human ancestors more than five million years old. Realising that the object is in fact an ancient Martian spacecraft, Quatermass deduces that the aliens have influenced human evolution and the development of human intelligence. The spacecraft has an intelligence of its own, and once uncovered begins to exert a malign influence, resurrecting Martian memories and instincts buried deep within the human psyche. Emails to
