Sky (1975)

Postby racine on Fri Nov 09, 2007 1:47 pm

Back in the 1970's, when nearly every science fiction series ITV mounted was touted as a rival to Doctor Who, all the best ideas emerged in the children's slots (Timeslip, Ace of Wands, The Tomorrow People).

Sky was another such contender. Written by one-time Doctor Who writers Bob Baker and Dave Martin, it told the story of a young time-travelling deity from another dimension who gets knocked off course by a black hole and becomes stranded on Earth. Though immature, Sky has the power to compel humans to do what he wants. Enter a trio of West Country teenagers, Arby and Jane Vennor and Roy Briggs, who become caught up in helping the blond, blue-eyed stranger to return to his own dimension, via the 'Juganet'. Neither outright hero nor villain, Sky is opposed on Earth by Goodchild, a sinister character who can materialise and dematerialise at will, representing 'the natural opposition of Earth to anything out of place'. Sky's presence has evoked a disturbing reaction from nature - one scene has tree roots trying to throttle him when he shelters below ground. Sky must find the 'Juganet' before the opposing forces grow too strong.

Much of the series was filmed around Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Avebury, giving it an added mystical twist. Of the cast, Richard Speight, who played Roy, had done his own travelling through space and time as the young Time Guardian, Peter, in The Tomorrow People.

Sky, which appeared in 1975, was one of several strong fantasy and adventure series produced by HTV, whose output also included Children of the Stones (1977) and King of the Castle (1978), the latter also scripted by Baker and Martin.
