From the writer of Doctor Who,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Season [DVD]  (DVD)This was the first thing I saw that I was conscious of the writer. I don't know why but Russell T. Davies stuck in my head. The show was one of the reasons why I thought Davies would do a good job with Doctor Who and in its way, created when Dr Who was off the air, it was a replacement for the same.
Three kids find themselves involved in two separate adventures (that end up building to a single climax much as today's Who will have a subplot running through the series that explodes in the series finale) involving computers, a dyed blond supervillain, archaeological digs and alien war machines. Oh and Thelma from the Likely Lads. It's filmed much in the style of classic Doctor Who, features dialogue for the main character Marcie that you could hear Tom Baker or Sylvester McCoy saying, and has a Who-like credit sequence. It's like a re-mix. As such it's a fun sci-fi horror adventure for kids that still holds up rather well today due to Davies' clever writing.
I thoroughly recommend it. The only question is, whatever happened to Victoria Lambert?
