The Boy from Space (1971– )
User ReviewsReview this title
See also SKY HUNTER (which was later dusted up by L + R) for more great children's adventures, brimming with better ideas, plot and performances, than any of the 'adult' counterparts can manage. The only crime, is the 'hardcore' following, this show has, and the BBC's lack of release for any L + R story yet. But, if you do get the chance to see these fine shows, watch them. 10 out of 10
It certainly brings back haunting memories as I seem to remember being absolutely scared to death watching this at school (I'm 31 now and thinking back can still feel the terror!!). My memory is a little sketchy but was there also a book to accompany the show?
Does anyone recall the episode when the shadow was coming up the stairs (I think they were in a lighthouse???) - truly terrifying.
I would absolutely love to see this again and if anyone has information as to how to get hold of it I would be most grateful to hear of it.
