Crazy Credits

At the end credits of all seven episodes, the message 'Vicky Loves Jerry' appears amongst the cryptic hieroglyphic text that morphs into the names of the cast and crew. This can only be viewed by slowing down the DVD frame by frame, as the morphing is quick. To whom this message is referring to, is uncertain. See more »

Liking Kinvig
19 March 2007 | by (Exeter) – See all my reviews

I am really glad to see some comments about Kinvig. I loved the programme and now have the DVD. I also love Tony Haygarth so that helps. Sci fi in those days used to get a very raw deal from the programme makers. Prunella Gee's teeth at the beginning of the series were so awful! She must have watched the programme herself because she soon got them fixed. The shop set was terrific, exactly the sort of shop that used to be found in most small towns, in some back street with things in the windows whose purpose could only be guessed at. And Des Kinvig was just the sort of chap that would own the shop. I spent some time trying to remember the name of the programme, and for some reason I always associated it with a triangle that had some sort of mystic meaning, but unless anyone knows differently I must have got it mixed up with another programme.
