A Drummer boy appears from nowhere transported through time  into these days.Paul Nicholls stars in his first early roll as david a young man who must get to the bottom of the Earthfasts mystery.

All the filming was undertaken around the towns of Richmond & Wensleydale in North Yorkshire. A unique feature of this drama was the telling of the story by Keith who also plays half of the lead role in the adventure. There were a total of five episodes each lasting about 25 minutes. 

This drama really was under estimated in terms of its appeal, acting, storyline and music. Even though it was produced in 1994 and so therefore is relative newcomer to the world of children's drama, it was still a great piece of work. Viewers might note that David was played by Paul Nicholls who later went on to star in loads of television programs including Eastenders and earthfasts was his first acting role on British television
