Over at The Fan Can, you’ll find 10 Pilots With Light Turbulence, my guide to the little-seen tryouts of subsequently huge TV shows that almost got it right, but not quite. Which Vic Reeves song was being performed as early as 1989? Why were the entire cast and crew of Doctor Who made to stand on the naughty step? How many attempts did it take to get Spitting Image off the ground? Who were the original Jenna Maroney, Baldrick and Sylar? Why is Camberwick Green even more terrifying than you thought? Find out all this, and more, in 10 Pilots With Light Turbulence!
