This was a television series about two boys who find the lifepod from an Yrrillian spaceship and use it to have a very good time. Aquila can fly, it can carry the boys wherever they want to go and it can make itself invisible. It's kind of a neat toy to have...

The stories were loosely based on my book and two series were commissioned (in 1997 and 1998) by the wonderful Marilyn Fox (that's her in the picture with me on location) and made by my very talented friend David Bell. It got a Bafta nomination, was shortlisted for the RTS Best Children's Drama and I would have liked to write dozens more stories about Geoff and Tom. Who knows, perhaps one day I will.
