| Prince Charming stands and delivers
One of those mid 60's adventure series I actually don't remember ever watching as a child so it was nice to research and then track it down for perusal. The background apparently is that it was devised by the production and writing team behind Dr Who, setting down a time-travelling Edwardian adventurer for king and country in the modern day, modern day being 1966 swinging London, with a young girl as his crimefighting companion.

I've only watched one episode and out of curiosity will watch as many as I can mainly because I like the premise and enjoy seeing depictions of mid-60's London.

Gerald Harper, later to get a longer run on TV as country gent "Hadleigh". is the dashing upper-class toff struggling to adjust to the morality and technology of the all-action capital and Juliet Harmer is the plucky young girl who takes him in and tries to quite literally bring him up to date.

This first episode, concerning a protection racket run by a Ma Baker-type gangster was a touch ropey with some hackneyed acting and less than convincing fight scenes but I'm going to persevere with it as it has a period charm I rather like.
