TV: O is for...

Otherworld

SUMMER HOLIDAY fare, c. 10am weekdays. Family of four try to return home from future, only to be inhibited by bloke who played henchman to Steven Berkoff in Beverly Hills Cop. One episode discovered a colony where men were submissive to women, a la The Worm That Turned in THE TWO RONNIES. Blokes were kept on collars and leads, and traded by sort of Amazon slave dealers. The family were also being pursued by a mental military type who travelled in a silver car that – being futuristic – skimmed across the ground but which was obviously just a motor with a metal skirt.

    I always remember this being on ITV (Tyne Tees specifically) Sunday teatimes in the mid 80s. It usually followed the never ending (it literally went on for YEARS) psychological, locally produced, boring as buggery, older kiddies thriller Barriers and was followed by Falcon Crest (which we only usually ever saw half of because we went to evening Mass on Sundays). I was mildly interested because one of the stars was Sam Groom, who had starred in 70s American import Police Surgeon, which had been enjoyed by my family for its entire one series.
