developed a formula, believing it to be harmless, which Dawnay washed
down a sink. This caused the formula to enter the world’s oceans and
begin to remove nitrogen from the atmosphere. Intel has Elliott and
Andromeda join Dr. Dawnay in her work, originally she was working
on a way to increase crop yields, but now develops an antidote to
the toxic enzyme that is causing the weather disturbance, but Andromeda
is dying. Peter Halliday and Mary Morris repeated their roles as Fleming
and Madeleine Dawnay.
Fortunately, film exists of all six episodes. In 1972 the Italian
network RAI remade ‘A For Andromeda’ as a five-part monochrome serial
‘A Come Andromeda’, still set in England, although made entirely in
Italy. The series was available on video, although only in the Italian
language. In 2005, following a re-make of ‘The Quatermass Experiment’,
BBC Four made a 90 minute remake of ‘A For Andromeda.’ This starred
Kelly Reilly as Christine/Andromeda and Jane Asher as Madeleine Dawnay.
The producers were unsuccessful in having Julie Christie appear in
a brief sequence as she was working on another project at the time.
