Ace of Wands was a children’s drama from Thames Television which ran for three series between 1970 and 1972. The only series to survive is series three, the first two having been wiped.

The main character was called Tarot (Ace of Wands being a tarot card see) who shared a telepathic link with an orphan called Lilli and assisted by reformed convict Sam. Having this link enabled them to communicate over long distances to help solve various issues. In the final series there was Mikki and Chas who had the same types of roles and replaced Lilli and Sam. Another key character was antique bookshop owner Mr Sweet who would answer Tarot’s questions.
