My most vivid childhood memories of this series were of Lt. Paul Foster imprisoned in an alien space suit, drowning in green liquid, and those purple nylon wigs worn by the women on Moonbase. The green liquid was the stuff of nightmares, while those wigs resulted in an unfortunate hairdressing experience.
I have thoroughly enjoyed (and cringed on the odd occasion) re-watching the whole series again in crystal clear quality. The digital restoration is amazing – I wish more shows would follow their lead. The ‘science’, like the costumes, is not to be taken seriously, but the model work is still outstanding today.
It was excellent science fiction for its time, with interesting storylines, and it is still entertaining and watchable in 2009, although relatively slow-paced compared to present-day offerings. The added extras are a treat, and all in all a ‘must have’ for fans of Gerry Anderson's shows.
