Trivia

The entire first two seasons are currently believed to no longer exist, although poor-quality off-air soundtrack recordings survive for the second season stories "Seven Serpents, Sulphur and Salt", "Nightmare Gas" and "The Eye of Ra" parts 2, 3 and 4. The third season survives in its entirety. Additionally, around nine minutes of a studio recording session for "Sisters Deadly" from this final run was discovered at the end of a tape Bob Monkhouse had purchased from Thames Television to record over in his personal TV archive.

Magical mystery series
4 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I remember this TV series back in the early 1970s because it had such an impact on me as a young teenager(only just). I fell in love with the lead character Tarot and aspired to be like his assistant Lulli.

It has stayed in my mind over 20 years so it must have had something. I remember the main character was a performing magician/conjurer who was involved in solving mysteries of a supernatural/magical nature and I remember a guy with a white glove who used to refer to it as the hand of stabs or something similar. I used to rush home from school to watch it - wish we'd had video recorders then I'd love to see it again. Anyone else out there remember it?
