Archers Goon

Archer's Goon was a BBC children's TV SF series; it was like Dark Season, only much, much more metaphorical and rambling.

Seven alien siblings, who, naturally, don't like each other one little bit, take over a town in its past, present, and future, and are each assigned different duties according to their ages and abilities. The first the author Quentin knows about it is when, upon suffering an attack of writer's block, he is visited by the inhuman 'goon' of the mysterious 'Archer' with a demand for two thousand words. As a consequence of this, Howard and his little sister Awful get involved in all sorts of peculiar and, yes, philosophical adventures.

Based (fairly faithfully) upon a book by Diana Wynne Jones.
