Adam runs to Hendrick's house to telephone for help.
The butler goes to get Hendrick, but Adam finds the
phone for himself. When Hendrick arrives, he seems
unconcerned about Dai's death. When Adam says he
wants to call the police, Hendrick puts the phone
down and asks Adam to show him the body.
Margaret and the two children discuss what happened
to Dai. As they walk, they see the same stone back
in its place inside the circle.
Hendrick and Adam arrive back, but the body has vanished.
Adam doesn't understand.
Back at the museum, Matt spots the new stone in the
old painting, but Margaret shows them that it isn't
marked on the chart. Margaret asks Matt to count the
number of people in the painting.
Back at Highfield House, Hendrick speaks to the butler.
Hendrick reassures him that nothing was amiss. He
wants to invite Mararet and Sandra to dinner that evening.
Matt finishes counting the figures in the painting,
fifty-five. Maragert knew it. Adam arrives back and
tells them that Dai's body has vanished. The can't
Matt shows them that the pieces of amulet from Dai
fit exactly into the spaces in the fragmented amulet
found under the sarsen so many years ago. As he completes
the amulet, Matt gets another psychometric shock. He
goes into trance and starts mumbling...
beginning... end... visitor... bright... shining...
circle... people... village... priest... stones...
power... beam... always...
Adam writes it down.
They get him some water and Mat soon recovers, and
askes to see what they had written down. Adam tries
to work out what it can all mean... There's always
power in the stones. A bright shining visitor...
Adam remembers : a guest star - that's what a supernova
used to be called in the olden days - Hendrick's
Back at Highfield House, Hendrick is working out some
calculations from a star chart. He asks the butler
to run the figures though the computer.
In the pub, Adam still ponders over the meaning with
Margaret. Adam now believes Matt's ability, and feels
that Dr Lyle was stopped at the edge of the circle.
Meawhile, Sandra and Matt cannot find Dai at the barrow.
As Adam and Margaret leave, Hendrick appears in the pub
and offers to buy them a drink, they refuse politlely.
Adam asks Hendrick about the amulet, but Dai doesn't
appear to know anything about it.
Back the the cottage Matt and Sandra suspect that Dai
is gone forever. Mrs. Crabtree suggests some dinner
but Matt wants to make a sandwich. Mrs. Crabtree says
that they mustn't spoil Sandra's appetite, since she is
going out to dinner that evening. Sandra wonders how
she knows that.
Later, at the cottage, Margaret wonders how Mrs. Crabtree
knew, because Hendrick hadn't even asked her at that
time. Adam doesn't want her to go. He is afraid that
something might happen to them. Adam thinks that the
treatment happens at Hendrick's house. Margaret still
wants to go. Adam makes her promise to come back to
the cottage afterwards for a nightcap. As they leave,
Matt steals Sandra's scarf to use a a psychic camera.
At Highfield House, Hendrick notices that his guests
are late. But soon he hears them arrive. He recieves
them and shows them around the house. Sandra notices
the digital clocks around the house. Back at the cottage,
Matt feels a twinge from the scarf. Adam makes him egg
and chips for tea.
Hendrick shows the two into the dining room at the very
top of the house. There is a huge table made of stone
and huge stone chairs. Hendrick starts the meal.
Back at the cottage, Adam brings in the egg and chips.
Matt feels another twinge from the scarf, so Adam turns
on the tape recorder and asks Matt if he can see where
they are. mat says he can see them in a dining room
at the top of the house, and there is a digital clock.
They are eating. Sandra is getting nervous. Outside
people are chanting. Hendrick says that it's just the
villagers. Margaret says it sounds as if the house
was a temple and the table an altar. Hendrick just
Hendrick notices the time, and begins a ceremony.
'Anger the fire, fire of speech, breath of knowledge,
render us free from harm, return to us the innocence
that once we knew, complete the circle, make us at one
with nature and the elements. It is time'
around in his chair until his back is towards them, a
hole opens in the ceiling and a white light appears.
Back at the cottage, Matt describes the energy, then
