I… don’t think I even have any caption for this.

Publicity shots of David Collings as Silver (snatched from the DVD galleries for Assignments Three and Six).

You know how in some shows there is a character who comes on and it’s like someone switched on all the lights, metaphorically?  In Sapphire & Steel, that’s Silver.  Only with Silver it’s literal as well as metaphorical.

Everyone needs a brilliant, shiny, flirty Element who can make light-bulbs glow.  Why wouldn’t they?  (That seems to be Silver’s philosophy, anyway.)

Silver/Sapphire/Steel and its component ‘ships

4. Silver/Sapphire/Steel

Elemental OT3: They’re so beautiful and mysterious and inhuman and flirty; they’re in each other’s heads and they complement each other perfectly.  Even when Silver is being annoying and Steel is glaring a lot.

(And a newbie might reasonably ask: what are they doing in these pics?  Well… I don’t know.  Nobody does.  They just each pose perfectly in relation to the other two and then move/swap places in a sort of slow unending dance while fighting Time.  Occasionally there is also flirting/arguing/working stuff out.  Or something.)

It is a very sad thing when people don’t realise how shiny Silver is. 
(It’s okay.  I have finished now.  The flood of Silver pics is over.)

How to steal a necklace and turn it into a flashy gold tea towel (not shown in this diagram). Or: if you’re human and Silver starts flirting with you, keep an eye your jewellery/light bulbs/doorknobs/any shiny thing.

Silver.  Possibly reflecting on how perfect and shiny he is.

Silver doesn’t understand alien concepts like “being wrong” or “people might not like me”.  He’s so shiny, how can these things be possible?
Yes. Why I should never play with my S&S screencaps.  My bad case of Silver-adoration returns at full strength.

(Because I had the plain version of these from the other post and I love this bit.  A lot.)

It is a sad but true thing that all my terribly witty David-Collings-poses-in-doorways pics would not fit in one Tumblr post.  It is even sadder that I couldn’t delete the rest and instead posted them here.  (I promise this is it.)

#1.  It doesn’t, however, despite appearances, enable tv detectives to find your corpse any quicker.  Strange but true.  #2. Also iron balustrades, but you have to stop somewhere.  #4. But it’s not the same.  #5. There’s almost always someone looking at him in these caps.  Mostly likely with a “What the…?  Okaay…” expression.  #6. And also flirting, probably.  #8. Sometimes you can even use doorways to leave and enter places.  Really.

David Collings likes to pose in doorways.  (I made this to cheer myself up.  I trust it’s plain I’m not mocking too much.  I think David Collings is kind of amazing.  But he likes to pose in doorways.  Or beside any handy pillar or post.  And why not?)

#1. Probably since 1964, but I lack full pictorial evidence. #2. If I knew how to gif, Babington stroking the doorpost would probably merit one. #6. This deserves some kind of special award for marvellously-inappropriate-yet-appropriate posing in a doorway.  (Why does BAFTA not recognise that as a category?) #7-10 Silver = ♥ always

My one and only OT3, let me show you. 

Sapphire, Silver and Steel being all mysterious and non-human.  And posing beautifully.  (Joanna Lumley, David McCallum, David Collings in Assignment 6 of Sapphire & Steel.)
