Professor Quatermass comes out of retirement to search for his missing granddaughter and finds a world on the verge of anarchy, and an American-Russian space station destroyed by unknown forces. He is befriended by astronomer Joe Kapp and they witness the obliteration of thousands of Planet People by a beam of light at the stone circle, Ringstone Round.
Did You Know?
It is revealed that Quatermass' daughter Paula, who was played by Monica Grey
in Quatermass II
(1955), married a man named Carlson and had a daughter named Hettie (short for Hester). She and her husband were killed in a car accident on the Autobahn, leaving Hettie in Quatermass' care. On his photographs of her, her name is inconsistently both Hettie Carlson and Hester Quatermas [sic]. See more
Quatermass has curiously mis-spelled his own surname as Quatermas on the back of Hettie's photo. See more
