Telepathic mutt in BBC children's sci-fi series
23 August 2005 | by NumptyBSee all my reviews

I'm seriously surprised to learn that 'ManDog' aired in the US! It was one of those quintessentially British children's dramas very like the output of the Children's Film Foundation. I remember its original and repeat screenings on the BBC in the seventies and have fond memories. Its star was a cute black and white Border Collie (some relative of 'Blue Peter's' Shep?) A family pet is, accidentally, the first to encounter a injured refugee from a totalitarian future whose only means of survival is to store his mind in the nearest living thing. The man-dog then strikes up a telepathic relationship with his boy owner to the latter's delight, as the two seek means to repair the traveller's time-ship which materialised in a junkyard (now where have I heard of a time-ship in a junkyard before, 'Doctor Who' fans?). The time machine looked like a changing room locker, I think - very tall and narrow. Definitely a curio I'd like to see again to find out how good my memory is, if nothing else.
