"Armchair Theatre" was a British television drama anthology series, which ran on the ITV network from 1956 until 1968 in its original form, and was intermittently resurrected at various points during the 1970s. It was produced initially by ABC Television, and in the 1970s by ABC's successor company Thames Television. The word 'mystery' in the title was added to several early episodes.
Synopsis: Written by Hammer Pictures scribe Jimmy Sangster. When Government civil servant Henry Walpole receives a cryptic letter with the words "I can Destroy The Sun" he chooses to "Mark it unbalanced anonymous". He soon discovers however that Britain is not alone as both the USSR and USA have received similar warnings. It seems more than a coincidence the negociations have just broken down over agreement on limiting the H bomb.
Superintendent Travers of MI5 has received a more detailed letter, convincing him "this is no hoax." Dr Peter Lunn of the Tipston Observatory confirms the writer is no crackpot, for Lunn himself has already witnessed the recent destruction of a minor star, Phobos. The ultimatum is- get agreement on the H bomb within 4 days or else.... Travers gets an ultimatum too: "find that man!" A hard task for he has "nothing to go on at all.
