Paging Dr Smith….

I’m not sure of the exact date, it was the mid-90s for sure- part of me says 1995 but I won’t swear to it.

Fox Home Video were releasing the first volume of the 60s TV show Lost in Space. Their idea was to try and compete with the VHS release of Star Trek that was doing very well.

HMV Oxford Street held a signing with original series actor Jonathan Harris, who played Dr Zachary Smith, in attendance.

My friends Mark and Robin and I went along and met some other folks we knew at the venue. There wasn’t a huge crowd but it was fun.

I got a telling off from Jonathan Harris, just like Dr Smith on the show, for wearing a Star Trek tee-shirt rather than a Lost In Space one!

We then had a group photo with him. It was a fun little event!
