Ace of Wands: Special Edition
As quintessentially 70s as Spangles, the Chopper bike and massive flares, ≤ce of Wands introduced a new kind of hero to children’s television: Tarot, a cool magician with psychic powers and a knack for unearthing strange goings on. For three years and with a variety of sidekicks he fought the good fight and thrilled children (and adults!) everywhere, then - in 1974 - he faded from our television screens... until now!
Much sought after and long-awaited, this DVD release contains all remaining episodes (the entirety of series three) and a wealth of special features. So thrill again to Michael Mackenzie’s charming, otherworldly portrayal of Tarot as he fights strange villains in quirky storylines from the likes of P.J. Hammond ( Sapphire and Steel) and Victor Pemberton ( Doctor Who).
