Originally shown on ITV and not seen on British television since 1978, Star Maidens has largely been shrouded in mystery.
Today regarded as a rare and bizarre curio by TV sci-fi enthusiasts, this unique Anglo-German production has a place in television history books and provides a fascinating snapshot of the sexual equality revolution at the time.
Created by Eric Paice (Dixon of Dock Green) and co-written by John Lucarotti, who had previously been a contributing writer for Doctor Who and The Avengers, and fellow Doctor Who writer Ian Stuart Black, Star Maidens is set on the futuristic planet Medusa in the solar system of Proxima Centauri. It’s a “perfect” world ruled by women known as Star Maidens, and where men are the inferior sex.
Now all 13 episodes will be available to own on DVD in a two-disc digitally re-mastered set.
Star Maidens is out now on DVD from Simply Media.
