Big Finish release trailer for Timeslip Volume One.

Audio Drama producers Big Finish have unveiled a trailer for their revival of British children’s Science Fiction TV series Timeslip. Originally airing on ITV between 1970 and 1971 for a series of 26 episodes, the show has gained a cult following thanks to home media releases.

The audio series reunites the original main cast, Spencer Banks and Cheryl Burfield, for the first time since the series ended. In a story entitled The Age of the Death Lottery written by Andrew Smith, Sarah Sutton has also been cast.

Decades after their childhood experiences passing through a mysterious ‘time barrier’ that could transmit people into the past and the future, two adults – Simon Randall and Liz Skinner – encounter two youths from the 1980s, Neil and Jade… and realise the barrier is open again.

Following them through the barrier in search of a missing friend, they find themselves many years into the future, when over-population has brought the Earth to its knees. So a radical reform has been undertaken – a mass culling of parts of the population known as the Death Lottery. Not everyone supports this idea. Rebels know as refusers battle the government and the sinister Enforcement Bureau – and Liz discovers that her old friend Charlotte may be responsible for the whole thing.
