gave it a seven for nostalgia , however...

The lead actor is so wooden and the ending such a disappointing anti climax its little wonder I cant remember it being broadcast back in dec 1981 as part of bbc childrens telly here in the uk. Interestingly, unlike most series it was shown twice weekly so the five episodes played out barely over weeks - which probably also accounts for it hardly registering?
