I know some of the cast have complained that it's only a 5-hour series but the format seems to be working very well as it's one 5-hour long plot – more akin to the Dr Who of old I guess. It also looks like they've spent as much on it as a full series, so each episode has been a bit more spectacular, better filmed.Posted 8 years agoloweySubscribermastiles_fanylionMember
Mind-controlling gay space slugs will be released onto the set of Eastenders. One will attach itself to Phil Mitchell's spine, causing him to close down the garage and set up an interior design consultancy, which will really tit up their story arcs.

>'Tosh' was killed off in previous series
Ah, thought as much…still have about the last 4 episodes of the last series to watch :0
From what I read Barrowman had said somewhere, he wasn't happy with it being shorter. I must admit it would be easier to completely miss it since it's only on for one week..not to mention it's a pain having 5 hrs worth of episodes clogging up the pvr in one go..Posted 8 years agollamaMember
I watched a bit last night and quite liked it. Better than the series format which seemed to consist of capn jack flouncing round cardif in a leded up range rover camping the aliens to death. Be much better if it was grittier / scarier / edgier imo as it is after the watershed and all that.Posted 8 years agofoxyriderMember
I must say I am a die hard sci-fi fan but I think this show's budget is rock bottom low and IMHO is SH*&E – each to their own but Harkness is so camp and his actor (;) )over exposed on BBC TV now it just getting annoying. I hate to say this about a BBC sci-fi program but there – got it off my chest!Posted 8 years agobillybobMember
quite like it – BUT Captain Jack is annoying… Gwen is quite hot, BUT i've noticed she's got a bit of a gap tooth thing going on which cools her down abit….
& the thing that annoys me most is all the bloody love stuff… It's not eastenders, I couldn't care less if you're straight, gay, only like robots/aliens/mutated space monkeys from mars (delete as applicable) but please concentrate on the terror/sci fi aspect & try not to overact & make it more enjoyable for us people watching.
That said I still quite like it.Posted 8 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember

Not a reader of Chaucer, I assume?
Gat-tothed I was, and that bicam me weel;
I hadde the prente of seinte venus seel.
As help me god! I was a lusty oon,
And faire, and riche, and yong, and wel bigon;
And trewely, as myne housbondes tolde me,
I hadde the beste quoniam myghte be.nukeSubscriber

Agreed…don't understand why they felt the need to pad the script with the weak romance stuff.
Other than that, we're quite enjoying it and at least it guarantees an hour of watchable TV this week.Posted 8 years agoDaveGrMember
Got interesting with the discussion about what to do about their demands – I could suggest quite a few kids and adults that would be ideal candidates to go – then it all went "Russell T Davies" at the end. The "Eastenders" influence is all a bit over the top. Could be more subtle.Posted 8 years agoCountZeroMember
Gwen. Ooooooooo yesssssssssssss. There's a girl who looks good in jeans.Posted 8 years ago
Oh, and I'm enjoying the current format, too. I don't mind the relationship thing, it shows the characters as humans with lives outside the workplace, as well as in. Like Chuck, it stops the characters being just a sort of cypher.
Really enjoying it. No idea what you're bitchin about: "Eastenders" and romance? Eh?
Bloke is understandably a bit emotional and shaken by essentially causing the death of his long term friend, fellow "soldier" and lover.
That doesn't seem particularly over the top to me.
Perhaps he should have just muttered "Blast!" and stared into the middle distance. Would that have been "subtle" enough? 🙄Posted 8 years ago
