The Tomorrow People: The Living Skins


In the first of a two-part reciprocation under the UK Podcast Exchange Visit Programme®, Messrs Velvet and Blackout of The Peggy Mount Calamity Hour arrive on the doorstep of The ExtonMoss Experiment bearing travel sickness, clanking bottles, and vociferous opinions...

Under the shared microscope of retrospective televisual appreciation, this critical quartet dissect The Tomorrow People's 1978 duology The Living Skins, where cutting-edge Fashion™, extra-terrestrial terror and unexamined pages from the RADA coursework syllabus collide.

What are the odds of gathering four sci-fi geeks in a room and learning two of them haven't seen one of the most iconic genre-series of all time? What are the chances of a low-budget 1970s television production accurately predicting the late-80s horror of shell suits? What's the betting there won't be any gin left?

Unleash the Play-button to find out...
