Still interesting, but a little too right-on
16 March 2009 | by (Manchester UK) – See all my reviews

Having looked for this for ages, I was delighted to be able to see it through the magic of the Internet recently.

Like most people, I saw it when I was a child and it made a big impression.

On viewing it now, being much older, the experience was a little disappointing, as was to be expected.

The episodes had very little pace, and the programme makers took incredible liberties with the cliffhangers, often showing something at the start of the episode that wasn't there at the end of the previous one! Sky himself was still as eerie as I remembered, and the use of CSO on his eyes and hands was still effective.

It was a true Friends of the Earth parable, however, and, given that I'm not exactly a supporter of greenie, eco-friendly, anti-science bull, this grated on me.

Only one moment in the series sent a shiver up my spine... when Goodchild was going up the stairs, with the camera focused on his feet, and you saw his creepy cloak just kind of drop into shot, where it hadn't been before!... ooh! All in all, could have done with being 6 episode long instead of 7.

DVD release seems unlikely due to the fact that episodes 3 and 7 only exist in ropey off-air recordings from a domestic Philips 1500 VCR.

There's a definite reluctance to release material in low quality.

Catch it if you can, though, through other methods :)
