The once great BBC has fallen foul yet again to that great modern British attribute; mediocrity. While usually I would applaud the BBC for it's policy on social cohesion the actors inclusion is just well......formulaic. The way in which the BBC put together this drama is almost as though it was drama-by-numbers.
All the building blocks are there:
Ethnic minorities represented (including the new kid on the British block the eastern European) check.
Evil state puppet to attract liberals: check
SF concept to attract males under 45: check
Unnecessary romance to draw in female viewers: check.
Complicated yet vague plot: check.
Sum of all it's parts....FAIL.
The dialogue was ABYSS-mal, the characters seemed to ALIENate the audience rather than draw them and I do understand why viewers might seem DEEPly LOSTed when watching it.
