The series was based upon the Tripods trilogy of children's books: "The White Mountains" (1967), "The City of Gold and Lead" (1967), and "The Pool of Fire" (1968), by John Christopher. Only two of intended three seasons have been produced - the events of the third novel are therefor missing in this adaptation. See more »
I have both series on DVD and every time I want a really decent sci-fi fix, I stick them on, sit back and watch as three lads make their way across a post apocalyptic UK and France. The special effects still hold up today and when I was 10 years old glued to the screen every week I remember wishing I could be Will making a stand against the mysterious and terrifying Tripods. Of course there are negatives such as the prolonged stay in the Château de Ricardo and the fact you don't get to see the Tripods much in most of the first series but for fans like me the positives far outweigh the negatives. This is a classic series and I whole heartedly recommend it to anyone....I wish I was watching it again for the first time through the eyes of a ten year old.
