'Terrahawks, stay on this channel....'
Back in action after 30 years comes Terrahawks, the fondly remembered action-adventure comedy originally brought to you by the men who created Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Dick Spanner.
In the not too distant future, the Earth finds itself under constant threat from Zelda, a bloodthirsty android who, along with her fiendish family and monstrous creations, has established a base on Mars.
The only thing standing between this evil queen and her quest for the ultimate annihilation of mankind are the Terrahawks - an intrepid band of heroes led by the stern but fair clone Doctor Tiger Ninestein.
- 'The Price Is Right' by Jamie Anderson. With the prospect of budget cuts and a spot inspection looming over their heads, the Terrahawks intend to showcase themselves to the best of their ability. A surprise attack from Zelda, however, gives them a bigger chance to demonstrate their worth than originally bargained for.
- 'Deadly Departed' by Stephen La Rivière and Andrew T. Smith. After an epic battle, it appears that Zelda has finally shuffled off her mortal coil, but when their beloved matriarch's will is read, her android family is disgusted to discover that she has left everything to Ninestein. In retaliation, they organise a funeral the likes of which has never been seen.
- 'A Clone of My Own' by Andrew T. Smith and Stephen La Rivière. When his clones begin to fall foul of mysterious circumstances, Ninestein is forced to face some difficult home truths.
- 'Clubbed to Death' by Stephen La Rivière and Andrew T. Smith with Jamie Anderson. A night on the town turns deadly for the Terrahawks when the desperate proprietor of a hot new club just so happens to be in serious debt with Zelda's new loan shark venture.
- '101 Seed' by Gerry Anderson, adapted by Jamie Anderson. Zelda conspires to help the Terrahawks enter the record books when a seed of destruction is sown on Hiro's happy birthday.
- 'No Laughing Matter' by Terry Adlam. Zelda intends to use her latest creation - Cy Splitter, the universe's funniest cyborg - to leave her enemies helpless with laughter. The Terrahawks' only hope is that Twostein can play that game.
- 'Timesplit' by Chris Dale. Past, present and futures collide when an audacious plan by Zelda's Time Lord leads to the capture of one of the Terrahawks. Zelda is thrilled, but will the resulting temporal instability unravel the fabric of space and time?
- 'Into the Breach' by Mark Woollard. The Zeroids face termination when Ninestein and Hiro roll out their newest creation - the Cyberzoids. But will these supersoldiers be enough to fend off a direct attack on Hawknest from Zelda's mothership?
Directed by Jamie Anderson.

Catapulted back to the 80s by Lord Tempo
They’ve done an excellent job of pairing the original voice actors (other than Anne Ridler, who sadly died) and the original music and SFX into the same 25 minute slots as the series. The result, as another reviewer has said, is that you can visualise every scene unfold- nostalgia overload!
Most of the stories go with the beloved tounge-in-cheek style of the later episodes of the original series, some with a modern twist- Zelda trying to ruin the world with her own Wonga style pay-day loan company was very contemporary, and the state funeral (complete with Sky News style vox pops) was great fun.
One or two do go back to the darker, more sinister tone of the first series which is great to hear. Reminded me why I used to have nightmares about Zelda, and that she was very frightening and duplicitous.
The SFX and music sound amazing. You will get goosebumps when the credits roll, and you’ll see that neon noughts-and-crosses board as vividly as you did in 1985
