TV: T is for...


TATTY HALF-ARSED low budget DR WHO for kids that ran for six months non-stop then never came back. Two oiks with time-travelling capabilities – something to do with stepping in and out of bubbles – aided grown-ups in past and future world-threatening ecological escapades, including, on more than one occasion, themselves (surely breaking the Rules Of Time?). Unappealing leads were SPENCER BANKS (Simon Randall) and CHERYL BURFIELD (Liz Skinner), the former a Nerdy Boffin, the latter a Screaming Wimp. Blessed with six-episode bracketing titles like The Time Of The Ice Box and The Day Of The Clone. Quite good fun, but only if you were eight years old.

    Remember the 3-D title sequence? Basically the word TIMESLIP in balsa-wood stuck on a card and filmed with some stage-hand running round it with a torch.

    Can someone PLEASE tell me what the theme tune is called. I think it was written by a frenchman…

    It’s library music from DeWolfe- ‘La Rite de Terre’ by Edouard Michael.

    The sign should read De Ministry of De Fence, which is 12 feet high and encompasses the compound.

    methinks you’re being a little bit unfair….loved it myself…mind you the fact that it didn’t come back might have said it all…
