The Unmutual Reviews: Action TV Magazine. Review by Rick Davy

Whilst many magazines can claim to be "unmissable" or "essential", very few can live up to their billing. One which does, however, is Action TV - a 40 page glossy magazine dedicated to "cult" TV shows.

Born out of the long-running late 80s and early 90s publication "Time Screen", "Action TV", edited by aficionado Michael Richardson, is available on an issue-by-issue basis or in the form of a subscription and each issue takes in-depth look at some of our favourite adventure series.

The latest issue, Autumn 2005, is no exception with an in-depth look at "Sapphire and Steel", "The Man from UNCLE", the 2nd season of "The Saint", and a profile, including interviews, of composer Edwin Astley.

No stone is left unturned during these articles. Methodically researched and written, the depth of knowledge by the pool of writers at the magazine's disposal is unrivalled, with countless production, cast, crew, and location facts for each of the featured shows, written in an interesting and welcoming style.

Whether you're a stickler for solid facts or a passing fan with a brief interest in Cult TV you will not be disappointed with a subscription to "Action TV". At only £3.50 per issue, the magazine is fantastic quality and highly recommended by this reviewer. For more info, and to subscribe, visit
