    Default Please tell me I haven't made this up....

    This one has stumped me for many months now.
    I'm almost sure it was a UK kids show on BBC, early 90's. It was about an alien (I think) who looked like a human but had strange ears, like cauliflower ears. He tended to wear a shell suit and lived with a family who ran a newspaper printers. He had short black hair and was really pale. There was a boy and a girl in the family.
    This has really taken over my life, everyone I have spoken to denies the shows existence and think that I have made it up, using a mixture of Mike and Angelo, Gilbert the Alien and Press Gang.
    Please help!!!!

    You haven't made it up - it's 'Watt on Earth', written by Pip and Jane Baker, who had previously written for Doctor Who.

    I really liked it, I've still got the novel, which is a fairly close adaptation of half the first series.

    It was a slightly odd format of having 2 15 minute episodes per week, but I think the repeats were of 2 epidoes edited together.

    You're thinking of Watt Of Earth.
