Trivia

Script editor Ruth Boswell and her husband James came up with the central concept of the series, and appointed producer John Cooper brought New Zealand writer Bruce Stewart in to pen and flesh out the stories. Another engagement in his scripting diary meant that Victor Pemberton handled the final seven episodes. See more »

Remembering Timeslip
21 July 1999 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I was six when Timeslip was shown, but it has really stayed with me. I am surprised that no-one has published anything about it on the WWW, and yes, I have indeed been sad enough to search for it. Hell, there is even a Double Deckers page, so why not Timeslip!

Some things I remember are:

*some episodes were in colour, and others in black and white. Might this be why it has not been reshown?

*that the scary blary ATV sig tune blended perfectly into the theme music: da-da-da-da-DAAAAAA.....

*the way Liz and Simon would feel along the gap in the wire netting to find the Time Barrier.

*thinking how freaky it was when Liz met herself in the future (probably 1988 or something), but that she was called Beth.

*I used to have the novelisation, and there was also the comic strip version in Look-in (someone needs to do a Look-In website, by the way).

Does anyone know if Timeslip is available on video? I have never found it and would love to see it again.
