TV Aliens In The Family (BBC-1 1987, Grant Thatcher, Sophie Bold) Published 2 years ago on March 20, 2017 Children’s scifi drama serial Aliens in the Family told the story of a family who befriend a young alien teenager from the planet Galconque. The Aliens aspect is more than just the real alien though as young 12 year old Jacqueline (aka Jake) is feeling very much like an alien herself now that her father has remarried and brought a new wife and two step siblings into the house. Bond, the alien, is being pursued by villains known as the Wirdegens and has to try and reach a stone circle in order to get back home. Without giving too much away though there is more to his pursuit than even he realises. A typically strong mid 1980’s fantasy/scifi series that nicely tackles the tricky subject of parents remarrying and the ensuing arrival of stepsiblings by placing it within the frame work of a scifi chase tale. production details UK / BBC1 / 6×25 minute episodes / Broadcast 18 November – 23 December 1987 Writer: Allan Baker / Novel: Margaret Mahy / Music: Roger Limb / Costumes: Inez Nordell / Design: Paul Montague / Executive Producer: Paul Stone / Director: Christina Secombe cast Grant Thatcher as Bond Sophie Bold as Jake Clare Wilkie as Dora Sebastian Knapp as Lewis Rob Edwards as David Clare Gifford as Philippa Elizabeth Watkins as Solita Granville Saxton as Wiredegan Leader Sue Soames, Tony Birch, James Woodward as Wiredegans BBCChildren's TVClare WilkiePaul StoneTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in TV1 day ago This Is Personal: The Hunt for the Yorkshire Ripper (ITV 2000, Alun Armstrong, Richard Ridings) Period crime drama serial.
