TV Heroes: The Television We Love
• In this special collector’s edition - timed to celebrate TV Zone’s 150th issue - we ponder the question of why we’re fans of television in the first place. Which shows have captivated us as adults or children? What makes them seem so magical?
• We approached dozens of people to contribute some personal stories of the shows that are special to them. The results were certainly eye-opening…

• Each nomination is accompanied by background information on the show. Contributions include…

Sarah Michelle Gellar as BuffyRob Francis on Buffy
• “'What's Buffy like then?' Last Summer, I got to discover what Sarah Michelle Gellar was like in person for myself....”

Wrapped in plastic - Twin PeaksColin Baker on Twin Peaks
• “Every ingredient of Twin Peaks works. The music, the settings of the hotel, town and wider countryside…”

Mrs Peel and SteedStephen Gallagher on
The Avengers

• “My mother had taken against Patrick Macnee for no reason at all: ‘Look at him. The big girl.‘”

Calista Flockhart exits as AllySophie Aldred on Ally McBeal
• “Maybe Renee’s breasts finally grew so large that they exploded, taking her and Georgia to the great unisex toilet in the sky.”

The Twilight ZoneJMS on The Twilight Zone
• “More than anywhere else, I acquired my love of language from Rod Serling and The Twilight Zone.”

Paul McGann as Doctor WhoGary Gillatt on Doctor Who
• “What began as a teatime diversion for a tartrazine-charged child, ended up as something approximating a career.”

Geordi and Riker, part of the Next GenerationSteven Braun on Star Trek: The Next Generation
• “Beyond being brilliantly written and acted, TNG brings me a great deal of comfort.”

Tom Baker on Dad’s Army
• “Arthur Lowe had this marvellous way of playing a comic role absolutely dead straight.”

Jayne Heitmeyer on Seinfeld
• “I found the concept very clever in its simplicity, the writing ingenious and the characters a whole lot of fun...”

Louise Jameson on Tenko
• “It was wonderful to eat guilt free. My chest grew from 32 to 39 inches almost over night.”

Thomasina Gibson on Captain Scarlet
• “No matter that he was only 12 inches tall and walked as though he’d broken every bone in his body.”
