Fantastic Journey

By Steve Michael

'The Fantastic Journey' was about a disparate group of travelers from various periods in history marooned on a strange island at the heart of the infamous Bermuda Triangle.

Katie Saylor made the biggest impression on me (well, I was fourteen at the time!); she played Liana, who had a telepathic bond with her cat Sil-L, rather like Gary Seven's with Isis (from the 'Star Trek' classic 'Assignment: Earth' ). There was also the late, much-missed Roddy McDowall as Professor Jonathan Willoway, a Dr. Zachary Smith-type character. Jared Martin led the group as Varian, a man from the future equipped with a strange tuning-fork like device. The other two were Ike Eisenmann and Carl Franklin.

Each week our heroes would enter a new time zone, in search of a way back to their own eras, only to land in trouble. Joan Collins appeared in one story, looking as glamorous as ever. And John Saxon was ( what else? ) a thoroughly evil dictator! 'The Fantastic Journey' was, along with Logan's Run and Man From Atlantis more popular here in Britain than in the U. S. A. Only ten episodes were made. Pity. It was perfectly agreeable hokum.
