The Tomorrow People
Where are John, Mike, Stephen, etc. now?



 BEFORE...
Created by Roger Price, "The Tomorrow People" was about a group of teenagers who had special powers and were the next stage in human evolution called "homo superior".
Their base was in a disused underground tunnel in London called "The Lab" where they battled against enemies from Earth and from space.
The show was first aired on ITV in 1973, and 8 series and 68 episodes were made in total with the last one being shown in 1979.
An episode which concluded the story of "The Tomorrow People" was never made.

 AFTER...
Nicholas Young, who played John and was the only cast member to stay with the show for the full 6 years, had several other acting roles in the 1970s and went on to work as an actor on the shows "Game For A Laugh" and "Beadle's About" where he'd help set-up members of the public.
Philip Gilbert, who played the voice of Tim, appeared as a newsreader in the film "Superman III" and occasionally appears in theatre.
After a few other acting roles, Elizabeth Adare, who played Elizabeth M’Bondo, became a child psychotherapist in 1980s.
Michael Holoway, who played Michael Bell, went on to appear in a number of plays and musicals, including the starring role in a production of "Joseph And His Technicolour Dreamcoat".
Nicholas Young now works as a theatrical agent and one of his clients is Philip Gilbert.
Peter Vaughan Clarke, who played Stephen, now runs a lighting firm which provides the lighting for some top West End shows.
Roger Price created a new version of the show which ran from 1992 to 1995, but again a concluding episode was never made.
In 2001 an audio series based on the original show was created which features some of the original cast.
The first 5 series of "The Tomorrow People" are now available on DVD featuring commentaries from some of the original cast. Series 6 is due for release in early 2005.
