I have nothing but praise for this excellent series. It may be a little long and slow going in parts but this only serves to build the tension and the excellent "they're watching you" atmosphere.
WARNING! PLOT DETAILS! # #
It starts off in an English village where the annual capping ceremony is about to begin. The world has been invaded by Tripods, giant three legged craft which dominate the countryside. According to Tripod law, all humans must be capped at age 16. It is time for young Will's capping, and all the villagers are getting excited, but Will has other ideas...
The effects are well done and the tripods themselves frightenlingly well conceived. There is good attention to period detail and the European location filming is marvellous.
Unfortunately this was never finished and the final part of the serial never came to be. I'm not sure if they have released the second part yet but if you come across the first buy it (I think it is about 12 episodes long 4 tapes)
***** stars (highly recommended)
