There's no need to watch it, Nigel, you could also read the excellent TV-novelizations of this series.

Incidentally, we watched Secret of Moon Castle (Cloud 9) yesterday - my grandson chose it. I wonder why Jack Trent left the Mannering household and skipped over to the Arnolds to be adopted? The plot also seemed to pinch some ideas from Mountain of Adventure, with people thinking they could fly after drinking the potion!

My grandson wanted to know why the girl was called Piggy. We had to explain that that was how people from New Zealand spoke. :)

A lot! :D

The series is certainly not as strong as the Adventure Series, but The Secret Mountain is pretty good imo.
