The Tomorrow People - another angle. And pink sweaters.

May 28th, 2008 (09:52 pm)

Some of you have bravely waded through my posts on The Tomorrow People, the children's science-fiction series of the 1970s, which can be found here and here. I hope to make a post on the Big Finish audio series when I have finished listening to them.

The superlative calliope85, meanwhile, is providing character profiles from the point of view of a professor of "picspam, fangirlisms, and people getting attacked by shellsuits." The first is of the Tomorrow People's leader, the mysterious John.

Interesting to see what someone born a few years after the series ended makes of it. calliope85 protests too much on the analysis front; though there were more Johns around in the 1970s than she imagines, I think; and for those of us who can (well, just about) remember Rollermania, the scariness - and yes, the uncoolness - make John's reference spot on.
