They Came From Somewhere Else

WEIRD SITCOMSKETCH thing about an alien invasion of the made-up town of Middleford, with much liver, giant prawn attacks, cannibal sofas and spontaneous combustion. Bizarre merging of styles from PETE MCCARTHY, ROBIN DRISCOLL and REBECCA STEVENS. Channel 4, naturally.

    This is on YouTube now in jumpy, taped off the telly back in the 80s-o-vision, so at least we can see it now. Watching it all these years later, it’s not very funny, but in its favour it is seriously weird which is enough to stick with it. The explanation for the weirdness even makes a kind of sense once you know what it is. The ending looked to be left open for a sequel which never happened. Terrible American accents, though.
