Strange Report - a great 60's TV series full of 60's fashion, cars and issues
I remember watching this series as a young boy in the late 60s. It was a excellent series then and, still is, now. What a shame they never went on to make a second run. What a great roll model Anthony Quayle was both as Adam Strange and as him self. Anneke Wills was/is great attired in the fashion outfits of the day and Kaz Garas was full of great fun without being too over the top, I thought his character was great. All three characters interacted so well that the presence of other actors is almost an intrusion.
As for DVD box set - It was great to see the present day Anneke and Kaz speaking of the series on the DVD extras disc. Appearances are made by other actors, like Martin Shaw, talking about the program just prior to the episode that they appear in. The quality is stunning, having been digitally remastered, far better than when I originally watched it. What a treat to see it again after all these years.
