Synopsis

This sci-fi action serial sees Flash and his friends come home from their former adventures only to have to return to space when Earth is struck by a deadly ray - the new weapon of villain Ming the Merciless from the planet Mongo. The heroes must stop the ray at its source on Mars, battling Ming's ally, Martian Queen Azura, who turns her enemies to clay people. While the special effects, with their clunky spacecraft spitting sparks behind them, now look very dated, this is an amusing and important precursor to the more sci-fi of today.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
