Comic Adventures from space
7 February 2013 | by jmbrightonSee all my reviews

A simple but highly enjoyable story of a dragon from space crash lands in England. Danny and the children enjoy a series of comic adventures before Danny returns safely, with the help of the children, to his home planet.

Although filmed in black and white the series remained exciting and with a ten week run we flocked back to the cinema to catch up with Danny and the children each week.

The cast features a wealth of familiar child actors who continued with successful film careers together with a strong adult cast.

It is rare to see this series anywhere nowadays, the special effects are minimal compared to today's effects but the story remains fun and enchanting.
