The name of the show was Sapphire & Steel and the full series is available on DVD for those interested in seeing it.
Thanks for the confirmation that it was not a continuity goof with the Doctor Who/Bowtie connection. As I noted, I know that Doctor 11 was a Bow Tie fan and I had a feeling that the Bow Tie was one of the items that were references to prior Doctors.
I loved the Doctor Who reference. My only possible gripe about it was the question of if the 1969 Doctor Who was known for Bowties like Doctor 11 was. There was also a continuity glitch since the opening said the Europass was for 1 month yet the passes shown at the end were for 1 year. Unless I missed something he was supposed to be going on a 1 month vacation before going to boot camp.
"In fact, the actor who played young Ducky (Adam Campbell) closely resembled David McCallum's young Kurykin character. The bet here is that this was no accident." Since years ago there was the in-gag of Gibbs saying that Ducky looked like a young Ilya Kuryakin (and then they showed a publicity shot of him from then on his fire place mantel) this resemblance was required.
The Red Queen did no so much die as have her original persona restored. She was still alive at the end of the series (she married Will Scarlet).
One thing I liked about the episode is that for once when someone wants to stop a fleeing vehicle, they shot out the tires. Too many times they just fire at the car but do no good. I have always wanted this to be done and finally my wish has been granted.
What reason does she have to come out before now? It is only Elsa's appearance that needs this action on her part. Until now, she can just fit in (just like Bo Peep did). We know nothing of her back story yet. Assuming that, as speculated, she is Elsa's real mother, that would be part of her backstory and thus a reason to come out of hiding now.
The team did not follow through on a number of potential leads. You have "Leg Guy" buying the legs yet the did not bother to try to find his source by checking his emails. If legs were being sold, why not other body parts? When they finally found the supplier, why not check HIS email to find out who else he was selling to? Also checking his Browser History would find that Kidnap Sales Site from the ending.
I rewatched the episode )on CBS.Com) and I was correct. Walter mentions founding the company. There is a Scorpion fractal on the door (you can see part of it when the gang-bangers are trying to break in). Also check over Walter's left shoulder when he is having the argument with Gallo. There is a Company Plaque on the wall. You get a better look at it when he is pulled aside by the girl for a talking-to. It says Scorpion and has a drawing of one on it.
"In Scorpion Season 1 Episode 1, we learn that Scorpion refers to Walter. In Scorpion Season 1 Episode 2, Scorpion now refers to the entire team." I have to rewatch the opening of S1E01 but I have the impression that the company/group that Walter established was called Scorpion so from the start it referred to the group. That was his hacker codename in the flashback when the FBI raided him as a child so the claim that it referred to him was also correct.
