As well as a "This Episode" segment, there was originally supposed to be been a "Next Episode" segment as well, just prior to the closing credits. A piece of music was specifically recorded for this "trail" but never used. The idea was dropped prior to transmission as it would tie stations to a fixed broadcast order - unless they were prepared to swap them around or cut them off completely. See more »
I caught this show by accident one Saturday night while overshooting SNL (it had no advertising I ever saw). It was funny. From the silliness of the bug-eyed alien gangster running for political office to the balls-to-the-wall action of the time travel episode, I just enjoyed watching.
The special effects hadn't changed much since "UFO" and "Space: 1999" (same producer for all 3 series), and some of the actors couldn't handle light comedy or romantic tension, but Ted Shackelford, Nancy Paul and a few others made this an enjoyable show, doing for police in the future what "Baywatch" did for lifeguards in the present.
There were several American actors in this British production because the United States was the country of first publication.
