Just released on DVD!
21 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

I've been hunting for this for decades, and did another search today to discover that the complete first series was release in March this year. I'm very excited, and just placed my order.

It is one of the series that I have the fondest memories of from childhood.

It seems that this comment isn't long enough for IMDb's filters - but what else can I say when I haven't seen the series for over 25 years? Once I've watched it again I'll come back and review what the show looks like through adult eyes.
