Trivia

The series suffered from a number of problems, including the very different approaches of the two directors assigned to the series, Christopher Baker and Graeme Harper, which led to a noticeable lack of continuity between episodes, and the strained relationship between writer Chris Boucher and producer Evgeny Gridneff. Boucher has said that he did not feel Gridneff consulted him with certain key decisions regarding the series and he never liked Gridneff's choice of the theme song and incidental music, which he considered completely inappropriate. Boucher also disliked the decision by the BBC to make the show entirely on videotape, as he had hoped it would also have a film budget. He was also critical of the BBC's decision to schedule the programme in the summer months at 8:30 in the evening on BBC2, thereby almost guaranteeing a small audience. See more »

A breath of fresh space.
12 December 2003 | by (Aberdeen, Scotland) – See all my reviews

I remembered this series after seeing The Moody Blues on breakfast TV the other morning. It reminded me of Justin Hayward's haunting theme song for the show ("Like a ripple on the water...")

Great series. Hard Sci Fi, uncompromising and willing to take a risk. Like a previous reviewer said. The stories weren't huge "save the world" epics but they were so well written they didn't need to be. Even the effects were just a little above the Dr Who budget level, but it didn't matter

I hope it'll turn up on TV again some day.
