They Came from Somewhere Else 

The new town of Middleford is taken over by aliens. Not quite a sitcom or a sketch comedy but it fell somewhere in between.

What the????
9 January 2007 | by skellingtonSee all my reviews

It's odd that Channel Four seem to have completely forgotten about this gem. A DVD release would be most welcome. It's such a long time ago since I've seen this that my memories are a bit jumbled but salient points: Giant prawns in the sewers, liver raining from the skies, more Donald Sutherland references than you can shake a stick and and possibly the only time in history that a TV programme - A TV PROGRAMME FOR GODS SAKE - has received a spontaneous standing ovation at the commercial break - not even the end of the programme! - by the assembled viewers in the grotty shared house I was living at when it was first aired......

I have a nasty feeling that it won't have aged gracefully, but for the memories and excitement it produced at the time 10/10.

DVD? Pretty Please?

Tap dancing through the liver.....
