Star Maidens

ROLE-REVERSAL SPACE drama set on a planet where the women were in charge a la The Worm That Turned, led by JUDY “DANGER UXB” GEESON. GARETH “BLAKE” THOMAS was a rebel (again) trying to get off the planet. Co-produced with West Germany. The country survived longer than the series.

    The biggest unanswered question about this is: was it supposed to be a comedy? Some of it looks serious, and nobody’s letting on that they’re joking, but then you’ll get a bit that’s so completely ridiculous that they must have been falling about after the director shouted “Cut!”

    Doesn’t one episode end with Gareth Thomas running away crying after getting kissed by an Earth woman? Something like that.

      Think it was meant to be “satire” rather than a straight-up comedy. Good camp fun though.

    Also starring Pierre Brice, who was hardly known in his native France but a cult figure in Germany playing the lead role in the Winnetou series of films.
