A Lost Classic, Perhaps?
14 March 2007 | by david-edwards-3See all my reviews

I also remember seeing the show when I was young. I remember my parents allowing me to come down from my room after bedtime, to watch it (I think I also saw Monty Python afterwards...I think it followed it - possibly on BBC2?) I was too young for the clever sub-text to the scripts, I just enjoyed the idea of little gnomes being alive in the garden! I remember one episode had Terry and Hugh trying to get friendly with some female gnomes (if that was their name!) who possibly were in a neighbouring garden. It is a great shame that no episodes have been found out there in TV-Land. Whether time will have been kind to the show, who knows? In the end, could this have been another lost TV classic from the BBC?
