Needs to improve

5/10
Author: Tweekums from United Kingdom

This opening episode had some good moments, it also had some fairly bad ones. The premise of being able to change events by seeing the future is hardly new so any new series using the idea really needs to bring something new to the idea. Sadly so far this seems standard fare: eccentric scientist receives images of a possible future and tells the police who are initially sceptical but as they follow the clues given it appears that the prophecy is coming true and the only mystery is whether our heroes will manage to prevent it.

Of course the clues from the future are fairly vague but as they appear to be photographs this makes little sense; why send a picture of part of a sign when one could just as easily send an image of the full sign? Perhaps this will be explained later, I certainly hope it is. On the plus side I did like the way this week's premonition worked out, I certainly didn't expect that ending.

Tasmin Outhwaite does well enough as police officer DI Rebecca Flint but I didn't believe Emun Elliott's portrayal of the slightly creepy scientist Dr. King, he seemed too young and the character was far too smug.
