Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear...
11 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This really isn't very good at all. Allowance for the fact that it's a non-professional production can be made, but only up to a point.

Eye on Blatchford is a spoof about a Doctor Who alien trying to cope with mundane everyday life in contemporary Britain and failing miserably. Its producers were also responsible for Oh Mummy, a spoof about a Doctor Who alien trying to cope with mundane everyday life in contemporary Britain and failing miserably.

Oh Mummy was never going to break any new comedy ground, but its saving grace was that it was brief enough not to outstay its welcome. Sadly, Eye on Blatchford is a weak retread of the not-exactly-strong original that doesn't know when to stop.

The production values are poor, but that is somewhat beside the point; EoB is, above all, supposed to be comedy, and that is its greatest failure. It simply isn't anywhere near funny enough to carry its 13 minute running time. The writing is derivative and unoriginal, almost completely free of laughs and contains too many sub-Chris Morris puns. The performances are unexpressive and there is no evidence of the kind of true comic rhythm or timing from either cast, director or editor that could have allowed the piece to rise above its will-this-do scripting.
