Doomwatch Winter Angel (1999)

Film details


Feature length drama inspired by the 1970s BBC series Doomwatch. Renegade scientist Toby Ross steals some of the work of fellow scientist Neil Tannahil to develop his own financially lucrative but highly dangerous work of creating a man-made black hole in order to dispose of nuclear waste. Dr Quist, ageing founder of the Doomwatch organisation - an environmental task force struggling against companies who pursue profit at any cost - approaches Tannahil after monitoring Toby Ross's experiments. Tannahil unearths a web of corrupt powers with shadowy security forces prepared to kill to keep their secrets and also unearths the more frightening fact that the project is out of control and the black hole has been created but cannot be controlled.
