A weak British science-fiction effort based on a radio play and starring American actor Duff as a rocket scientist helping the British with their space program. All his hard work is interrupted, however, when he discovers that his wife, Chevreau, is having an affair with a fellow

scientist, Osborn, who also is a Soviet spy. When the sly pair disappear at about the same time Duff launches England's first satellite, inspector Wheatley assumes that the angry scientist killed them and shipped their bodies into outer space. Not wanting to be convicted for a crime he did not

commit, Duff, along with his assistant Bartok, decide to be the first couple in space and hurriedly build another rocket to blast off into space and retrieve the satellite to prove his innocence. Back on Earth, Wheatley is shocked to discover Chevreau and Osborn turn up very much alive, until

Osborn kills Chevreau in a spat. Eventually Duff and Bartok are contacted and return to Earth. An early effort from Hammer horror director Fisher, who struggles mightily with the material and manages to bring some flair to the visuals. Many of the rocket effects are borrowed from ROCKETSHIP X-M

(1950).
