While running an experiment in his lab, young British scientist Peter Brady is exposed to a radition leak--and rendered invisible. At first he is excited about the phenomenon, believing he has stumbled upon a process that will benefit mankind. After a while, however, invisibility proves to be something of a "downer", especially since it appears that the process is irreversible. Brady's one chance to become visible again may rest with his old and trusted colleague Dr. Crompton (Michael Goodliffe)...who, unfortunately, has other ideas. In the original 1958 TV Guide listing for this debut episode of The Invisible Man, it is noted that "Also invisible on this series will be the name of the actor playing the title role--the producers won't release it." Well, the secret is out: Tim Turner provides the voice of Brady, while Johnny Scripps is behind the bandages as Brady's body. (Incidentally, this episode is an extensive rewrite of the abortive original pilot, wherein Robert Beatty was heard as Brady).
