An enjoyable romp thus far..., 4 June 2000

Personally, I've only had the opportunity to find the first complete story, "The Wrong End of Time." I found it quite enjoyable, seeing past the 'children's show' facade and enjoying it as I would a Pat Troughton Doctor Who adventure. Timeslip is a completely different concept of time travel as compared to most programmes/movies, and with an even lower budget than Tomorrow People, the creators have thus far managed to instill a minor obsession in me to find the remaining stories.

If you are looking for vintage British SF without the gloss, then by all means find a copy of this wonderful show. Fans of classic Doctor Who will be very impressed, I think.

The only drawback to the story is the child acting, although it improves a great deal as the story progresses. Also, there is a mild amount of padding, but that is to be expected in a serialized programme. The theme song is VERY reminiscent of another, extremely popular british SF series, as well.
