Moonbase 3 is a British science fiction television programme that ran for six episodes in 1973. It was a co-production between the BBC, 20th Century Fox and the American ABC network. Created by Doctor Who producer Barry Letts and script editor Terrance Dicks as a realistic alternative strand of TV science-fiction, it was not a commercial or critical success (Dicks himself has stated in a foreword to a collection of Tom Baker-era Doctor Who scripts that they „overdid the grimness and forgot about the sense of wonder that science fiction is all about“).
Eigentlich schade, dass es bereits nach sechs Folgen zu Ende ist. Etwa fünf, gut investierte Stunden sind das.
