The marathon continues and I am now up to DEATH'S OVER DOMINION starring BRIAN BLESSED.
I remember seeing this show for the first time in 1999 when it was run on BBC2 and as it went on was puzzled why it was not better remembered and more famous as for the most part it was fab. Then Year 2 started and I understood.
I finish re-watching Year 1 tomorrow! My word, this series holds up (for the most part). One of those vintage shows that really benefits from an HD picture and sound remaster. It adds a lot to it. Production values way ahead of its time. Some of these episodes I hadn't seen in 20 years since they were on BBC2 but they're great.
Watched the Year 1 finale back to back with the Year 2 opener. Wow, you can feel the quality suddenly drop through the floor between those two episodes. Even the previously fab visual effects suddenly look crapper and cheaper.
We shall see how we go. I haven't seen a lot of Year 2: I gave up roughly halfway through the BBC2 repeat run 20 years ago in despair at how a great show was run into the ground!
