Storyline

Matthew Gore has an imaginary friend. Or at least it seems. However, his friend is real, an alien called Chocky, who travels the universe using the minds of children, without the need of a starship. Matthews' parents, worried by their son, try to discover what has happened, because they don't understand the prodigious intelligence and knowledge that Matthew has suddenly acquired. Written by Chockys

User Reviews

Fantastic!
12 April 2001 | by notail99See all my reviews

Based on the novel by John Wyndham, this is a great, a sensitive and absorbing adaptation! Two sequels followed (one Australian I believe), but none surpassed this excellent piece of British children's television.
