A prelude to Doctor Who
13 March 2008 | by Film_DexSee all my reviews

This show was made in 1955, 7 years before Doctor Who made his debut on British TV. This show is clearly a forerunner of that one. It's meant to be educational, Z-RO goes back and forth in time in his time machine, and viewers learn about history.

It was quite enjoyable, and very good for its day. Yes, it was made for kids, but we're not talking about teletubbies or other crap here, we're talking about quality programming, with a hero kids could look up to.

These shows are now available on DVD, as the star is still alive, and had the originals on 16mm film. Why he waited until last year to release them................ that's a mystery!
