The InvadersThe Invaders - Emotionless alien beings from a dying planet who were the main antagonists on the sci-fi series THE INVADERS/ABC/1967-68. Architect David Vincent (Roy Thinnes) discovered a spacecraft unloading these invaders one night when he was looking for shortcut on a lonely country road. His only problem was convincing a disbelieving world that the invaders had landed and that they were methodically taking over the Earth.

The invaders didn't have oversized-craniums, green skin or antennas sprouting from their heads. They were simply human look-alikes that could easily infiltrate into society.

They did have their Achilles heels, however. Upon closer scrutiny, one discovers that they have no a pulse or heartbeat and have a mutated, crooked fourth finger that juts out awkwardly from the hand. And sometimes, when the invaders need to regenerate to retain their human form, they begin to glow. 

The most difficult problem in convincing the authorities that the invaders were here, was the fact that when an invader was destroyed they would go up in a cloud of red smoke, leaving nothing but ashes behind.


[Series opening narration begins with the whirling, high-pitched sound of a spacecraft landing followed by the voice of  William Woodson as Narrator]
