Definately worth a series!
22 March 2002 | by (Nottingham, London) – See all my reviews

The BBC are notoriously bad at bringing the super natural to the screen... especially on a Saturday night but they may just be about to crack it with 'Strange'. Firstly there was the great cast lead by the curly haired Richard Coyle (Jeff from Coupling) here not only dropping the Welsh accent but also the nerdish nervousness and adopting the role of demon hunter like a pro. Not only a good looking guy but laden with enough charisma and timing to ensure John Strange goes form strength to strength once a series is commissioned. Sam Janus also shined alongside Ian Richardson as the menacing Canon Black. The pilot introduced us to John Strange and his theories of demons lurking the world in human guise, and ended with him and Jude joining forces to kick some 'Azal demon of electricity's' butt. The effects were exceptional, the bad guy looking suitably scary. The pilot leaves us with more than enough loose ends and unanswered questions for a full series to be a must. I will enjoy watching these characters develop.
