I am not really called Eloise R, but this is my homage to John Christopher's Tripods heroine Eloise Ricordeau. If you want to know more about this inspiring character, watch The Tripods series 1 on DVD or buy John Christopher's fascinating trilogy upon which the series is based: The White Mountains, The City of Gold and Lead, and The Pool of Fire. And one day you may even be able to buy The Tripods series 2 on DVD.....How about it BBC???????!!!!!!!!
