A fleeting memory
29 May 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Wow Leachy, I remember it from Tyne Tees Saturdays mornings too, introduced by Neville Wanless (remember him) and that woman with the dark haired bob who always wore slightly too much lipstick but was strangely attractive??? Can't remember too much about it other than the sets were very dark and the spaceships were very pointy and futuristic to an impressionable 7 year old. Like so many series it just seemed to "end" (presumably when the TV company lost interest and stopped importing it). This fate seem to befall a lot of TV from the colonies, do you remember the Lost Islands? Did they ever get off or are they still stuck there!?

I have looked on and off over the years for any mention of it but seems largely forgotten, at least in the UK, which is a shame. I wonder, does this have a cult following in Oz? Is there a fan site anywhere?
