Storyline

Nathan, Kelly, Simon, Alisha and Curtis were expecting their community service to be boring. However after a freak thunderstorm they discover that it is anything but dull. Bestowed with strange powers, the five very different teens realize they have a lot more to worry about than just picking up litter, especially as they discover that they are not the only ones who have been given strange powers. Secrets will be revealed, feelings brought to the surface and relationships formed and broken. But hey, its only 12 weeks of community service; what's the worst that could happen? Written by LadyN1

Trivia

Over the course of the show's first three seasons, each character was given their own Twitter accounts, supervised by writer Howard Overman himself. Initially used for Viral Marketing, these accounts were also used to provide extra information about each character and were key to the 'Guy in the Mask' arc during the show's second series. They also bridged gaps between series' building up to the 'Vegas Baby!' and 'Erazer' spin-off short films. See more »

Flawless Execution
7 August 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Science fiction shows usually suffer from poor writing and awkward acting in their first season. They take a season or two to really get warmed up. This cast just clicks from day one. It may have something to do with the age of the cast. They're young enough to take sci-fi acting seriously. Older actors tend to make it look campy. Take Doctor Who for example, or even Torchwood.

And the writing is so crisp and imaginative it's hard to believe this guy has no writing credits before 2005. Howard Overman is sure to be a well-known name in British broadcasting for years to come.

BAFTA award well-earned.
