Space Precinct, loosely based on the Space Police pilot from 1986, was one of the most ambitious and expensive television series ever produced when it debuted in 1994. The series was a mixture of police procedural and science fiction and followed the work and family life of Lieutenant Patrick Brogan, a New York cop who transferred to the Demeter City police force on the planet Altor. Along with his human, Creon, Tarn, and robotic colleagues, Brogan enforces the law in Demeter City tackling everything from drug-dealing to acts of terrorism. All this while getting to grips with family life on an alien planet. With complex animatronics and special effects, the series is a visual feast with a number of special guest stars making appearances throughout. But are Jack and Katherine are ready to patrol the streets of Demeter City?
Jack’s a massive Gerry Anderson (Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Space: 1999 etc.) fan, and Katherine isn’t. In order to bring about peace in the household, Katherine has agreed to watch the first episode of every Gerry Anderson series in existence.
