The Tripods. BBC TV Series 1984 & 1985,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tripods - The Complete Series 1 & 2 [DVD] (DVD)
As a kid back in the '80s I loved this show. Watched it every week religiously. I was really disappointed when they didn't make the third series.
Having bought this and watched it again I still found myself engrossed and loving it. I still feel that it was a great shame the third part of the trilogy was never made. Form fans of Sci-Fi this really is a must. The Special Effects were great for its day. There is an undercurrent of War of the Worlds in there.
It's also quite sad to learn that one of the actresses in the first series was tragically killed shortly after it was made so her character had to be played by someone else in the second.
