Episode 2.2

Chocky's ChildrenNear his aunt’s home in the country, Matthew finds a windmill – the same one that has kept cropping up in his sketches and artwork. He meets a 12-year-old girl named Albertine, who lives with her father near the windmill; oddly, the two children already know each other’s names. Albertine’s father, who is homeschooling her, explains to Matthew’s aunt that the girl recently suffered some kind of brain trauma. Albertine is invited to take pottery lessons with Matthew, and he’s stunned when his new friend scuplts an abstract shape that he recognizes as Chocky’s physical form.

Episode 2.3

Chocky's ChildrenMatthew asks Albertine if she has been in contact with Chocky, and she has no idea what he’s talking about. Albertine continues to show skills and intelligence beyond her years, and while playing chess with Matthew, their combined concentration on the board allows them to move the pieces without touching them. Matthew suggests that Albertine’s skills and intelligence are actually the result of contact with Chocky, but hat only offends her. Then Matthew is warned of great danger – to himself and to Albertine – by Chocky herself.

Episode 2.4

Chocky's ChildrenMatthew is alarmed when an American scientist visits Albertine and her father, and tells them he’s studying the nature of genius and wants to conduct a few unintrusive tests on Albertine. Matthew warns Albertine about what happened to him a year before, and introduces her to Chocky. This convinces her to run away and hide, which upsets her father. Matthew knows where she’s hiding – a hiding place she had shown him while playing – but even there she isn’t safe.

Notes: Even if Deacon doesn’t look familiar, he probably sounds familiar – actor Ed Bishop (1932-2005) was a favorite of producer Gerry Anderson, and voiced characters in many of Anderson’s Chockypuppet-based series, as well as playing a starring on-screen role as Ed Straker in Anderson’s 1970 live-action series UFO. He also appeared in 2001: a space odyssey, Saturn 3, as well as uncredited roles in numerous James Bond films, along with guest shots on such TV series as Out Of The Unknown, 1990, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, and Highlander: The Series.
