  • Tube Corn
    Interzone #119 (May 1997)
    Bradley, Wendy
    This is not a favourable article. It nick-picks away at the series, and basically has not one good word to say about it. But hey, no accounting for taste! The author even goes so far as to claim the scripts are, "generated by randomizing a cliche thesaurus"! Cheek!

  • Crime Traveller
    SFX #25 (May 1997)
    Boucher, Chris
    p 80-81 : ill
    A review of the series as a whole. Alas Boucher doesn't seem to like the series and attacks it with some relish, giving the show only an "E" rating. Strange how for a magazine that doesn't like it very much, they devote two pages to it, and use all the same photos from the previous edition. Had to fill up space did we boys...?

  • Let's do the time warp again
    Radio Times, 1-7 March 1997
    Berkman, Marcus
    p 20-22 : ill
    Takes a look at a range of shows which dabble in Time Travel, focusing on Crime Traveller and Goodnight Sweetheart. Being published in the Radio Times means it is a favourable piece, but it's well written, and gives the reader a chance to compare Crime Traveller with other shows. Also states why it's different from those that have gone before.
