A BRAND-NEW NOVELISATION OF A CULT TV CLASSIC
is a circle. The circle is a machine. The machine is a cross-over
point. The point is a paramagnetic intersection. That is where I
must be. Not here...”
unsettling and a benchmark production for children’s television in
the 1970s, Sky was created by Doctor Who stalwarts Bob Baker and
Dave Martin as one of the run of outstanding children’s dramas HTV
produced in that decade.
Sky is a mixture
of ecological fable, science fantasy and good, old-fashioned peril.
An ethereal boy called Sky materialises on an Earth that is as
unprepared for him as he is for it. He soon realises that he’s been
brought to the wrong time and must seek out the Juganet to return to
his correct place in reality. With the help of tearaway Arby Venner,
his sister June and friend Roy he must race against time as Nature
rejects Sky and the Earth’s immune system creates the evil Goodchild,
who is out to stop him at all costs...
Based on one of
the most memorable television series of the 1970s starring Marc
Harrison, Stuart Lock & Cherrald Butterfield.
Building on the
success of previous releases featuring tales from Children’s
Television past, this is the first brand new novelisation from
co-writer of three Oscar and BAFTA winning Wallace & Gromit films,
creator of K9, and writer of numerous Doctor Who episodes. A
stalwart of HTV, Bob has worked with Sir Laurence Olivier, Leonard
Rossiter, Ron Moody, Toyah Willcox and Trevor Eve. Among his many
TV credits, Bob wrote a number of episodes of Doctor Who with
co-writer Dave Martin, several episodes of Bergerac starring John
Nettles and the smash hit children's show, Into the Labyrinth; Bob
also script edited the popular crime series Shoestring.
