4 The Tripods Season 1scottie101 | 23/02/2009 | See all scottie101's reviews (4)Another classic 80's BBC adaptation, this time of John Christopher's book 1 of the Tripods trilogy "The White Mountains". It's looking a little dated, but they've done a good job of cleaning up the picture and still classic stuff. Well worth the investment.Roll-on season 2, which after an 8yr wait is expected in a Season 1 & 2 box-set due March09 (unless delayed, again!).Don't hold out for season 3 though, as it was never made. You'll have to resort to the book version and you'll not be disappointed. There is also a prequel that sheds light on the original Tripod invasion - "When the Tripods Came". It was written twenty years after the publication of the original "trilogy", and set in the late twentieth century.
