Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Originally telecast in six 50-minute episodes, the British miniseries Skorpion starred Terrence Hardiman as diligent Chief Superintendent Franks. Called upon to investigate a suspicious plane crash, Franks found himself waist-deep in a complex, wide-ranging espionage plot. John Brason scripted, from an original story by Arden Winch. For reasons unknown, Skorpion seems to have completely dropped off the map since its first (and only) BBC presentation in 1982.
