It is delightful to see my childhood heroes and heroine (Prof. Peabody, of course) reincarnated onto the silver screen. Pretty well everything is as it should be with the horrendous exception of Digby's voice. Seeing as the man is from Wigan and pure Lancashire through and through, it is a nightmare to hear him speaking with a Cockney accent. To say that Americans would not understand a Lancashire accent is insulting to both Lancastrians and Americans. Apart from this, the series is very enjoyable and will certainly make many friends from those who remember the original in the Eagle; those who are not able to reminisce may also be able to enjoy the series perfectly well and I hope that many people manage to do just this. It is a wonderful piece of nostalgia for some and great historical sci-fi for others.
