Bonkers, barmy and completely brilliant,
This review is from: Children Of The Stones: The Complete Series [DVD]  (DVD)
I discovered this little gem by accident, just scouring the net really. Bought it on a whim and once I started watching it, I realised I remember it scaring the bejesus out of me, when I was about 7. For all you anoraks out there, if you can imagine a mix between Robin of Sherwood (all the dry ice/smoke), Doctor who mid Pertwee era (especially the story 'The Daemons' with all that occult and magic stuff that wouldn't be allowed on a kids programme these days) and anything mid 70's (flapping flares, haircuts of frankly scarry proportions) and you are about half way there! I loved the ending, especially imagining lots of kids my age back then going...'eh?'. Only as a adult do I understand what was going on. Like lots of 60's and70's kids programmes, the 'kids' aspect was just lip service to get the thing made.
Buy this and love it as all sensible early middle aged people should. Still, it is a bit creepy..............

i found this series through a review of sonething else when i was trawling through dvds of my era when i was a kid. I looked at time tunnel ,time slip ,voyage to the bottom of the sea, land of the giants etc etc, I would like to thank ''juxtapose'' for spending even more of my money as this has also been added to my wish list !!!.

This series did indeed scare the b'jasus out of me as a wee'un but I LOVED it.I could never recall it's name and garbled descriptions of half remembered scenes featuring smoke,big stones and pervasive eeriness garnered no success...until now!
I,ve come across it by accident and am beside myself with glee!!!

Loved the series but, even as an adult, I still don't fully understand that enigmatic ending!
I wonder if even the script writers did?
