Jaunt: An Unofficial Guide to The Tomorrow People

An unofficial guide to The Tomorrow People

 

JAUNT! - by Andy Davidson

Shape-changing robots, military masterminds, ITV technicians.  It's a deadly universe out there, but the Tomorrow People are here to help.

The Tomorrow People are man’s next step up the evolutionary ladder…Homo Superior.  From their secret base deep below the streets of London, they offer hope for a better future for the human race as members of the all-powerful Galactic Federation.

The Tomorrow People is the bête noire of cult television.  Regarded unfairly by many as a rival to the BBC’s Doctor Who, it inevitably comes off worse in comparison to its bigger budget, mainstream opponent.  The Tomorrow People was made by the children’s department of Thames Television, a company which really didn’t have all that much experience of making sci fi drama.  

The Tomorrow People is a staggeringly ambitious children’s adventure with a deeply philosophical foundation.  But it was produced by a team beset by inexperience, roller-coaster budgets and a decade of industrial tension which culminated in the total shut-down of ITV.  The result was a programme that was as good as it was almost in spite of itself.

For every bold political statement, there’s an alien commander who looks like a Tiki glass.  For every beautifully realised space battle there’s a plastic cup sprayed silver and glued onto a mop handle.  The Tomorrow People giveth with Geoffrey Bayldon, Michael Sheard, Trevor Bannister and it taketh away with Ali Bongo, an alien boy channelling Douglas Bader and Ray Burdis, twice.  

Jaunt follows the adventures of the Tomorrow People from their origins in a forgotten era of children’s programming to a publishing phenomenon, where the show and its stars were front page news.  It rejoins the Tomorrow People in the 1990s for some light-hearted Avengers action and returns once more a decade later as a series of bold, challenging audio plays.  Homo Superior has been with us for forty years and Jaunt chronicles the phenomenon that is again preparing to return to our screens in a big-budget US adaptation.

Jaunt features exclusive interviews with series creator Roger Price, producer Ruth Boswell and the Tomorrow People themselves; Nicholas Young, Peter Vaughan Clarke, Elizabeth Adare, Mike Holoway and Misako Koba.  

With an introduction from Roger Price Jaunt also features the complete script of the lost series nine adventures Mystery Moon and tells the previously untold story of the plans to continue the Big Finish Tomorrow People audio adventures.

Doctor Who Magazine 509

dwm510.jpg

This issue of Doctor Who Magazine pays tribute to Sir John Hurt aka the War Doctor, who passed away in January. David Tennant, David Warner and Louise Jameson are among those who celebrate a career spanning Alien to Z Cars, with Steven Moffat observing:

It doesn’t need saying – John Hurt was one of the greatest actors who ever lived. That’s not even controversial, that’s just a fact. I only met him a handful of times, but I can confirm the other thing that everyone else has been saying about him: he was also incredibly nice. Now, nice doesn’t seem like much of compliment, but you have to remember that this man was, quite rightly, worshipped by everyone he met. Worship has been known to go to people’s heads – but not John’s. If a man can remain humble and kind and warm as the world basically genuflects around him, then that is no ordinary man. The Doctor would be proud to be John Hurt – and for one very special day, he was.

Fourth Doctor 6:02 The Eternal Battle

eternal battle.jpg

The TARDIS has landed in a war zone. The Doctor, Romana and K9 find themselves traipsing through an inhospitable battlefield. Strange lights flicker in the sky, and stranger creatures lurk in the darkness.

 

When rescued from an attack by a Sontaran tank, the time-travellers discover they’re facing a far more dangerous foe than the battle-hungry clones. This terrifying fight has been going on longer than anyone can remember… and shows no signs of stopping.

 

With the TARDIS missing and their luck running thin, the Doctor and his friends’ only hope of survival is to uncover the truth about what is happening on this planet. If they can discover the secret of the eternal battle they might just survive… but it might just mean the end of them all.

Torchwood One: Before the Fall

torchwood one before the fall.jpg

London, 2005. Yvonne Hartman is the undisputed head of Torchwood One. Above the government, beyond the police, she has excellent people skills; enjoys regular tea with the Queen; and effortlessly defends the British Empire from alien threats.

 

Yvonne Hartman is excellent at her job, and inspires devotion in everyone who works with her - until, one day, she makes a terrible mistake. We all make mistakes. But only at Torchwood can a single mistake plunge your world into interstellar war.

 

Yvonne Hartman's facing the fight of her life. One she's going to win.

 

New Girl by Joseph Lidster

“They’ve been coming to us for years. And we’ve been kept in the dark. My name’s Rachel Allan. And I’m Torchwood”

 

It’s Rachel Allan’s first day at Torchwood. Torchwood only takes the brightest and the best – and Rachel’s wondering if Yvonne Hartman’s made a terrible mistake in picking her.

 

Plunged into a world of alien invasions and office politics, Rachel’s desperate to fit in. For one thing, she really wants this job. And, for another, she knows what happens at Torchwood if you fail.

 

Through The Ruins by Jenny T Colgan

“Ianto, please. It’s all… it’s all gone wrong. I don’t know what to think any more.”

 

Away Days at Torchwood aren’t what you’d expect. Yes, there’s the forced camaraderie, the team-building exercises, and the chance for long-held rivalries to boil over. But Torchwood Away Days also have the potential to get very lethal very quickly.

 

Yvonne Hartman’s extremely worried by this year’s Away Day. But she’s got other things on her mind – something’s very wrong with Torchwood.

 

Uprising by Matt Fitton

“Torchwood. It’s taken the best part of a month, but I’ve finally got things running how they should be. How they should have been all along. ”

 

Torchwood has experienced some radical changes, but things are finally settling down. Everyone has pulled together and is trying to put the past behind them. Well, except for Yvonne Hartman – she’s out to win the future.

 

There’s one problem. Someone seems to have started an interstellar war. Someone who knows Torchwood from the inside out.

 

Cast: Tracy-Ann Oberman (Yvonne Hartman), Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto Jones), Gerard McCarthy (Dean), Sophie Winkleman (Rachel Allan), Robert Daws (Soren), Tim Bentinck (Thomas), Nisha Nayar (Guleraana), Lorelei King (Pippa), Damian Lynch (Kieran), Simon Hickson (Ziggy), Rachid Sabitri (Mehdi), Helen Goldwyn (Receptionist), Philip Childs (Dave).

Things seemed to be working out, Evans even made a new friend in the shape of Private Tommy Godber, but things soon take a sinister turn when Evans finds himself the prisoner of a strange alien intelligence. The spearhead of a new invasion. But before it continues in its plan, the alien seems oddly curious about the life of Evans…

Torchwood 13 Visiting Hours

torchwood visiting hours.jpg

Everyone’s a little worried about St Helen’s Hospital. In many ways it is a miracle of the modern NHS. It has plenty to offer its patients. The problem is that a lot of them keep dying of natural causes in the night. And no-one can find the bodies.

 

People are beginning to notice. Questions are being asked. And there are rumours – the strange whispering figures seen at the end of the corridors, the electrical buzzing, the screams.

 

Also, Rhys Williams has come to visit his mother. Brenda’s had her hip done and is looking forward to a bit of rest and regular crumble. Rhys and his mam are in for a night they’ll never forget.

 

Torchwood contains adult material and may not be suitable for younger listeners
