A turning point for British indie science fiction

It may not be the most original story in the world, this is essentially Alien in a warehouse, but Auton represents the next development for low budget Doctor Who spin offs.

The first in a trilogy, Nick Briggs and BBV have put together a quality cast and an intriguing story which goes beyond fan fiction and becomes a real independent film.

I urge all sci-fi fans in general to seek out this movie, then see the very impressive sequel.
