The Tomorrow People has not stood the test of time. Actually I used to think is was embarrassingly bad back in the day as well. So I must have been feeling generous the day I brought the complete DVD boxset and decided to give it another chance... but it really is irredeemably naff.
Its taken a while to get to the final discs and the final set of stories. It's consistently cheap and consistently badly written and annoys me even more than it should because at its heart it's such a great basic idea.
Anyway the original space suits as previously blogged had a basic charm and a look of their own but the ones used in series 7 (and series 8) are nothing special at all. Seen in the stories; Achilles Heel and The Living Skins (And S8; War of the Empires) these suits have the goofiest helmets ever. What were they thinking.
