A Hitch in Time U rating

Two curious kids are sent back in time by an eccentric professor, played by former Doctor Who Patrick Troughton.

Children's 1978 57 mins

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.
