Six Degrees of Doctor Who
The Tomorrow People, like most British skiffy series of a certain age, shared a lot of guest actors with Doctor Who, and a young Peter Davison was in one story in 1975. There are two slightly mocking, recap-reviews on my lj: one for the Davison story, A Man for Emily (SPOILERS including the ending); and one for Revenge of Jedikiah (SPOILERS but not for the ending or the most shocking plot twist), which shared two guest actors with Who (details at the top of the review).|
A Man for Emily (3 episodes, 1975) is silly, fun, extremely cringeworthy, and the dvd has a commentary which Davison fans seem to like.
Revenge of Jedikiah (3 episodes, 1975) is a much more serious drama and I found it over-expository but it's only as cringeworthy as most other 1970s, ITV, children's television. Although I thought the slightly ridiculous ending didn't live up to the promise of the second episode.
Worth watching if you're a Davison fan; a Tomorrow People fan; or if you have free time to spare, access to the dvd, and you like that sort of thing which I'm assuming you do because you're reading 6degreesofdrwho. ;-)
