Synopsis

The Tomorrow People are teenagers who belong to the species 'Homo superior', the next stage after plain old Homo sapiens. They 'break out' at puberty, discovering that they are gifted with the powers of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathy. However, despite these awesome powers, they have one potential weakness. They are psychologically incapable of killing another human being, even in self-defence. Headquartered in a secret underground Lab and protected by the supercomputer Tim, the Tomorrow People look for the emergence of more of their kind whilst battling evil forces from the farthest reaches of space and time.

Some of the episodes and storylines were truly cringeworthy ("A Man For Emily", "The Thargon Menace") or just plain dull ("Slaves of Jedikiah", "The Vanishing Earth", "The Medusa Strain", "Into The Unknown"), but there were many which were actually rather entertaining ("Hitler's Last Secret", "A Much Needed Holiday", "The Doomsday Men", "Castle of Fear") and some were even rather good science fiction stories ("Living Skins", "Secret Weapon", "The Dirtiest Business"). Definitely worth a look; and even the poor episodes are worth enduring for the cast commentaries on the DVD discs - Peter Vaughan-Clarke and Nicholas Young really spark off each other to give what must be some of the most marvellously witty, funny and downright entertaining commentary tracks of all time!

I became fascinated with this series despite the scripting and slight character development. It does grow on you, but admittedly not very much. Well, it was just a kid's series. There are some very appealing youngsters, both as regulars and guest appearances.
