I loved this but no-one remembers it
24 July 2003 | by (Brighton, UK) – See all my reviews

It's typical that as I write this it has yet to receive 5 votes, despite being 16 years old. I watched it on British TV when I was 11, and I was totally hooked. Maybe being Welsh helped, maybe being into that other great british SF series Doctor Who helped, but I thought this was a superior slice of homegrown SF with a startling twist at the end. This is a serial in which the hero spends much of its running time brainwashed by the dictator! It's hard to imagine something this brave ever being commissioned as, essentially, a kids' show. Like most great kids' shows, it was far more than just a kids' show. Release it on DVD now!
