1 November 2005 | by (London) – See all my reviews

It was just plain rubbish! There was something missing from it, it had the sureness I usually like, some talented actors, it looked very realistic, but I just didn't like it! It is naturally going to be compared to The Day Today, which was far superior. I guess that worked by taking news programmes, and multiplying their existing elements by 100, instead of just using the same format as a regular news broadcast, but adding strange stories. TDT also had those fantastic names, and the complete lunacy of the finance news. Just go and buy The Day Today DVD, it's a great set with brilliant extras. I can't see any signs of this show improving on it in any way, which is a shame, as it looked really good in the trailers. But I guess the clips shown there were just the best of a bad bunch. I wanted to like this, but shall probably never watch it again.
