A Hitch in Time 1978
55 mins United Kingdom Director. Jan Darnley-Smith
Patrick Troughton (riffing wonderfully on his prior incarnation as Doctor Who) plays a time-hopping inventor who’s disturbed by a couple of curious kids. He decides to send them back through the ages for themselves, but when his machinery begins to malfunction his charges wonder if they’ll ever make it back.
Featuring Jeff Rawle (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) as Sniffy Kemp, the teacher out to spoil everybody's fun, A Hitch in Time is a riotous re-telling of history.
