“He’s the lone survivor of a lost civilization … thrust into ours!”
Okay, anyone hoping to see Mark Harris, a speedo-wearing webbed hottie “who is both human and a creature of the deep,” popping up in BBC One’s new drama Atlantis Saturday night will be sorely disappointed.
Apparently, the Minotaur used to take time out from chasing virgins through his Cretan Labyrinth to visit the other end of the Med. Who knew?
And there is great news for fans of the original.
Just as Ronald D. Moore’s Battlestar Galactica gave a tip of the hat to its predecessor by including
Apollo Richard Hatch, TVGuide reports that The Tomorrow People will welcome back original star Nicholas Young (you know, the one who always looked like he should have been modelling knitting patterns) in a recurring guest spot.
Sadly, there’s been no word yet on whether Flintlock drummer Mike Holoway will also be back to quicken the hearts of his now-40-something fans.
Watch this space for updates. At the rate the ’70s are coming back, TVClaw wouldn’t be at all surprised if Pauline’s Quirkes made an appearance in the listings.
