Just came across this 1999 series based on the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle tale of ‘modern Victorians’ stuck on a plateau with all the classic opponents.
So far I’m up to Series 1 Episode 8 and we have had:
Dinosaurs (and yes – they taste like chicken)
Natives similar to Aztecs
Lizardmen based on Romans
Man eating plants
Not VSF so far really as electricity / steam has played a very very minor part and it’s a bit stereotypical (females in bikinis / never run out of bullets / folk speak English etc) but fun for a wet or hot evening and you need to quiet the mind.
Think Indy without tanks or planes…
I get the feeling pulp rules would fit well due to the guns but a few of the scenarios will fit into my Palaeo Diet games. In fact I’m beginning to think again that pulp rules are the answer to everything 🙂
Not worked out why one episode has to be purchased / rented (well it’s Amazon after all) but the IMDb entry is here for the 60+ episodes and the Amazon U.K. link is here [Prime required]. There seems to be one advert per episode only so far (Ramsey Street of all things) – way better than YouTube at the mo.
Anyway – got to get back to find out how you cross an invisible ice bridge that’s on fire!
