YMMV / Sapphire and Steel

  • Epileptic Trees: Fans have been known to speculate at length about the S&S/Doctor Who connection. Are Sapphire and Steel Temporal Intervention Agents?
    • Fan speculation about the other Elements, particularly ones that were mentioned only in passing and/or during the title sequence, could fill several chemistry textbooks.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Deservedly has its own page.
  • Paranoia Fuel: Any sufficiently-large assemblage of old objects can potentially summon an Eldritch Abomination to destabilise the universe. Beware of museums... (An alternative interpretation of Assignments One, Three, and Five is that it's old-fashioned lifestyles or attempts to re-enact the past that cause problems, rather than simply collections, although this is not true of Assignment Four.)
  • Special Effects Failure: Too many to list; even the expensive and difficult effects look cheap.
  • The Woobie: Mr Tully in Adventure 2.
