Trivia

During the majority of the series, when the lab was located in the abandoned underground station, the control panel for the entrance was a prop that previously appeared in "Doctor Who" in the 1975 Tom Baker story Doctor Who: The Ark in Space: Part One (1975)). The prop was originally made for the 'Gerry Anderson' series UFO (1969), and other panels and control desks from that series can occasionally be seen in both "Doctor Who" and "The Tomorrow People."

Space and time meddling kids.
15 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If like me, you were in your early teens when this first aired, you were probably a fan too of this low-tech but engaging children's sci-fi series. Replacing another favourite in the ITV schedules of the time, "Ace Of Wands", "The Tomorrow People" aimed even more at its target school-age audience by employing child actors in the lead roles of teenage "homo- superiors" with the ability to telepath and "jaunt" through time and space.

Unfortunately this was its biggest weakness, as the young actors in the starring parts are almost universally wooden, every take looking like they're repeating a line learned a minute before. The sets and special effects are similarly dodgy, all cardboard and flashing lights, yet watching the episodes today some forty years on, with its excellent theme tune and arresting title sequence, it still takes me back to my childhood, when I would settle in after school and watch it faithfully.

That nostalgic glow makes it easy to forgive its rather obvious shortcomings and to be fair the stories I've re-watched are okay too, sort of junior Dr Who. The good news is that all the original episodes are currently available to watch somewhere in hyper-space, unlike the late lamented "Ace Of Wands" so enjoy them while you can.
