Slow-paced, but deep and complex
12 September 2019 | by HalSpacejockSee all my reviews

I caught five episodes of this on first release, back in 1983, and it remains with me to this day.

I'm a huge fan of Terence Stamp, so that was a major plus, and I loved the complex machinations and layers of intrigue.

Until now I've had to rewatch the series in the three 'movie' versions, one of them on VHS, so it was great to be able to buy the DVD in the original 6-episode format.

Still one of my all-time favourites.
