A London Adventure
19 August 2006 | by (Devon, England) – See all my reviews

Although aimed at kids & teenagers, this drama contained numerous elements for anyone interested in London's lesser-known museums and heritage. Indeed, the Tyrant King novel (author Aylmer Hall) was published by London Transport, and I suspect may have even been commissioned by them, possibly as a vehicle for increasing public awareness of some of the capital's forgotten and overlooked treasures.

But it's not dusty and dull: it is a drama, after all, and based on an intelligent story line. I remember being totally absorbed as the youngsters chased (and sometimes were chased) around London.

The choice of incidental music was inspired, and provided an extra atmospheric quality; it was only some years later that I discovered this to be the Moody Blues. Ah, 1968. Nostalgia!
