Make Room in that Telephone Booth
20 June 2010 | by kalin99See all my reviews

Here's another one who remembers {vaguely} Virgin of the Secret Service. It appealed to all those kids who grew up with Dr Who and Adam Adamant and was a bit like a Victorian Biggles {without all those annoying airplanes} complete with a plethora of stiff upper lips and cries of 'For King and Country' a jolly undemanding spoof that could almost fit in with Michael Palin's Ripping Yarns series. At least it was original programming. You get the feeling it springs from that time when TV companies were still experimenting with programming. Shows like this and Adam Adamant and Big Bad Breadwinner Hog, were original, creative, they didn't always work but at least an attempt was being made to entertain us with something more than cheap reality TV shows, or Soap Operas. It says a lot that one of the most popular shows on TV at the moment is a revamped 60's idea, Dr. Who. The Golden Days of Innovative British TV shows are, I'm afraid, long gone
