Three-episode Thames Television mini-series based on Alison Lurie's novel "Imaginary Friends". Produced in 1987 and starring John Duttine, Patricia Kerrigan, John Stride, Billie Whitelaw, Fabia Drake, Patsy Rowlands, and Ken Jones. Plot: Verena (Kerrigan) has telepathically received messages across the galaxy from Ro of Varna, which she shares with others in a local group. Roger Zimmern is a new assistant professor of sociology studying the group, as a cult, under the supervision of Professor Tom McMann. Roger and Tom ultimately become part of the group, as the line between academic observation, real life and fantasy blurs, then disappears - especially after Vereena announces that Ro and their other friends from Varna are coming to visit them.
