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.
