Storyline

Doomwatch is the nickname for the Department of Measurement of Scientific Work. Under the leadership of Nobel Prize winning physicist, Dr. Spencer Quist, the Doomwatch team struggled, for three seasons, to keep an eye on the environment and supervise government and private sector research in an attempt to prevent pollution and other disasters that might be caused by the misuse of new scientific developments, discoveries and technology.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The series was devised by former Doctor Who (1963) story editor Gerry Davis and scientific advisor Kit Pedler to explore the issues around the environmental dangers facing the world. See more »

Goofs

There was seemingly no set continuity for the scenery crew when dressing the studio between recordings. Consequently the three prominent mushroom cloud photographs in Quist's office during the first two seasons regularly swap position between episodes. See more »
