What do you expect from a CBBC low-budget spy drama?
17 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

A fairly unconvincing cooker explosion? Check.

A powerful supercomputer that seems to be able to make domestic computers catch fire? Check.

Decent adult actors and annoying child ones? Check.

David Spinner and Wanda Ventham are engaging to watch, but Eddie Cooper just seems to overdo every single word he says i.e. It just seeeems sooooo unfaaaaair. (Don't quote that as a quote).

Not that I'm saying I could do any better myself.

Still, this was the first CBBC program to truly entertain me for a while, and I aimed to not miss episodes, which I have not done in a series at all for a long long time. When its recapitulated in a couple of months, take a look.
