YMMV / Biggles

  • Author Existence Failure: An epic example; Captain Johns died while writing Biggles Does Some Homework, and lost consciousness at his desk mid-sentence. That's dedication.
  • Fair for Its Day: Although some of the language and attitudes are dated, the series is no worse (and perhaps somewhat better than) similar stories from the era. Johns himself appears to have been relatively progressive for the time, being an advocate for women pilots when this was still a controversial issue (See Distaff Counterpart).
