I remember an episode of a TV series, I guess late 60s/early 70s. The protagonist (I think a writer) seems to have spells where he becomes some kind of SF/Fantasy warrior in an alien or future world. I vaguely remember plastic armour and a sword or ray pistol. It could be that the setting is from one of his own books. If I remember correctly the point was whether it was real or an hallucination.

Anybody know the name, series, and whether it was based on a book?

Found it! "Get Off My Cloud", from Out of the Unkown.

  • I knew it must be one of a few 70s, 80s UK series. Via Wikipedia, I found www.625.org.uk which has an Out of the Unknown episode archive. Unfortunately no recording of the episode exists, but a boxed DVD set of the extant episodes is available very cheaply. – Martin Jul 25 '17 at 12:12
