Children of the Stones

YET MORE 1970s MYSTICO-QUACKERY, this time involving some Stonehenge knock-offs casting evil influence on guillible yokels. All the usual stuff. Welsh village? Check. Local madman? Check. Posh kids? Check. Lunatic professor? Check (IAIN CUTHBERTSON).

    Children of the Stones may feature unsettlingly posh voiced children but it’s a good pot-boiler, a cross between The Owl Service and The Prisoner. Great performances from all and sundry (especially Freddie Jones and Iain Cuthbertson), spooky choral theme music and a great scene in episode 1 with the most realistic punch I’ve ever seen a child actor throw.

    I absolutely loved this programme. I was 9 when it was shown on ITV and it scared me to bits. ‘Happy Day’ everyone.
