|The Tomorrow People|
When John and Elena discover a new Tomorrow Person, Paul, breaking out, it seems like enough excitement for one day. But why is Paul captivated by media darlings Zane and Katya? Why is John acting strangely working against TIM and the others. Has some ancient alien power returned to gather new followers from the ranks of todays teenagers?
Nicholas Young (John), Helen Goldwyn (Elena), Daniel Wilson (Paul), Philip Gilbert (TIM), Emma Lowndes (Sarah Badger), Louise Rolfe (Katya), Matthew Ashforde (Zane), Billy Miller (The Changeling)
To test the water for a possible new series, this new story by Rebecca Levene and Gateth Roberts reunites Nicholas Young (John) and Philip Gilbert (TIM) with two new additions to the ranks of homo superior - Helen Goldwyn (as Elena) and Daniel Wilson (Paul).
It replicates rather well the style and tone of one of the poorer television stories, with improbable breaks in the action to describe to the listener/viewer various details of TP lore (TIM, stun guns, the inability to kill etc). It might be seen as a homage to the original show, but is pretty forgettable in its own right, despite featuring a vacuous showbiz couple, the like of which we see every day as part of our current 'celebrity culture'.
Of the performers, only Nicholas Young seems unsure of how to play John.
Happily, this release lead to a series, which went on to bigger and better things.
