Into the Labyrinth was an ITV children's series that was broadcast in 1981-2. Naturally a version quickly appeared in Look-In, specifically issues 38/1982 to 51/1982. Each weekly episode was published as two pages, featuring Mike Noble's bold and dramatic black and white line art.
The series was based around a struggle between two timeless, feuding sorcerers - the noble Rothgo in the TV series played by Ron Moody (and Lazlo in Series 3 played by Chris Harris) - and the evil Belor (Pamela Salem). Rothgo is helped in the stories by three teenagers and the action takes place in various historical times and locations.
Mike Noble drew every two page episode of the Look-In strip, he had previously drawn the adaptation of Worzel Gummidge and go on to draw Star Fleet and later Robin of Sherwood.
