For the BritSF fans among us...

Hubby sent me this about five weeks ago, and I keep forgetting to pass it on:

Saw this on Outpost Gallifrey: Looks like the same company doing some of the Doctor Who spinoffs (Big Finish, I think, is the name) - not the licensed Doctor Who Stories - is going to be doing a set of Sapphire and Steel audio stories. I think you know some Sapphire and Steel fans, don't you?

I didn't follow the link to find out more, but it sounds like they are looking to branch out even wider. They mention doing stories set in the world of Ultraviolet. Suzanna Harker recently did that audio remake of Shada, so they could probably at least get her...


In other news, there was a message on my answering machine when I got home last night saying that my Worldnet packet had been mailed. Net access soon, so very soon...

This is wonderful news! I used to be hooked on Sapphire and Steel as a teenager. It's a very weird and wonderful program with the accent on the weird and the lovely Joanna Lumley and David McCallum. I particularly remember the program about the first world war soldier who came back into modern times. They played around with the idea of alternate dimensions and holes in time... I'd love to see more Ultraviolet too. I thoroughly enjoyed that series and could not believe my eyes when it was played in America. I showed it to as many of my friends as I could muster, which was quite a few.

*g* My mom was thoroughly disgusted with my dad and me the summer we drove through Scotland for two weeks, because we insisted on finding a campground with a TV room the night that it was on. (Wednesday, I think?)

I vaguely remember that one. The one I remember best all the way through was "Nursery Rhymes," which I think was the first episode. And I remember a sequence where Sapphire was caught outside the timestream somehow, and could hear Steel and the others in the proper phase but couldn't see anything, and if she moved she'd get lost entirely and/or one of of the marauding crosstime critters would get her. That was at a railway station, and may have been the same one with the WWI soldier.

As for UV, we first saw it on Sci-Fi and immediately loved it. A lot of PotC fans are discovering it now by investigating Jack Davenport's credits, and they just reran it recently. I think (my) Jack read recently that they were considering doing a second series, but I may be imagining it.
