Kappatoo, a 23rd century kid, time-swaps with his 20th century counterpart, Simon Cashmere. A children's sci-fi comedy that tries to offer observations on what we are doing to this planet as well as what life might be like in the 23rd century.Written by
Relatively funny and still quite watchable even today.
The first series pretty much followed the two books that Ben Steed wrote Kappatoo and Kappatoo a stich in time. Then carried on further leading a cliff hanger ending. Two years later Kappatoo 2 followed on from the first series but at a somewhat reduced level of quality.
As stated above the second series ended on somewhat of a cliff hanger. Whether there were any plans for a third series will likely never be known.
But a relatively new and unheard-of writer Edmund Ashton has written a story which takes place twenty years after the events of the final episodes cliff hanger and also takes place in the same universe and includes the characters from another popular sci-fi miniseries for young adults
The Girl from Tomorrow a Screen Australia production.
Unfortunately, when requesting permission to publish, Ben Steed's estate was unable to grant permission because of a complex rights situation.
Leaving this miniseries equivalent to a certain symphony by Franz Schubert.
