Outstanding and memorable kids drama
16 July 2013 | by (Worcester, England) – See all my reviews

My sister and I were hooked on The Girl From Tomorrow back when it was aired in the UK. We remember it to be extremely engaging and enjoyable. Watching it now in 2013, it has aged fairly well and is still very watchable. The graphics were clearly limited by the technology and budget of the time, but that's the only aspect that hasn't stood the test of time. The performances are genuinely solid and actors play their parts well - Irene is a harassed single mum, Jenny a rebellious teenager, Petey an annoying but resourceful nine-year-old, and Alana a confused and terrified time traveller from the future trying to make sense of Sydney in the '90s. Alana stole the hearts of thousands of 12 year old boys. Good to see Katharine Cullen went on to a solid, respectable acting career.

The series benefits from good casting, screen writing and drama. The cliffhanger endings are well crafted and you're always hoping for more. Silverthorn is a great charming villain, and the Great Disaster plot gives tremendous scope.

It was never a high-budget all-star production, but if you have fond childhood memories of this show, don't be afraid to re-watch it as an adult. It lives up to your memory.
