John played by the lead cast member Nicholas Young and his team of telepaths called the Tomorrow People are Earth's only hope for a better and safer future...
I have just seen the first series entitled The Slaves of Jedikiah and I am halfway through The Medusa Strain. In the first episode, we see a new entrant to the team, Stephen who is just starting to 'breakout' with his new found powers and later with the help of the Tomorrow People, he learns the abilities to engage in telepathy, telekinesis and teleportation. These powers and special abilities make advanced people like Stephen, a formidable team to encounter and beat.
The original cast which also stars the empathetic and caring Carol (Sammie Winmill), the inquisitive adventurous and Stephen (Peter Vaughn-Clarke), the ingenious and gifted Kenny (Stephen Salmon) along with the help of their advanced biological computer called Tim (Voice of Philip Gilbert) makes the concept of the Tomorrow People both ahead of its times as well as being thoroughly entertaining.
I first saw episodes of the Tomorrow People when I'd come back home from school and switch on the telly. I still remember the opening credits theme music from then with memories of the clenched fist opening up into an open flat palm-which I now understand signifies humanity's potential ability to open their minds into broader and more enlightened thinking.
Having revisited some of the clips of the episodes from YouTube, I listed the Tomorrow People DVD collection on my favourite's list for quite some time till I recently got the chance to buy it. This series is far better than the 1992 reboot which loses most of the original appeal of the 70's smash hit teen series. However, I am glad that a new team attempted to bring back this great concept for a new generation and perhaps we could even see a future film based on this great British Sci-fi series of the 1970's.
