Aiden is played by David Tennent, who also played the Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who. Notice how the color of the front door of Aiden's home is the Tenth Doctor's Tardis blue and how the door resembles the Tardis. Having the door this way was obviously playing homage to Tennant's great work as the Tenth Doctor. See more »

It's mentioned somewhere that if you can 'dream it up', well then, it could possibly happen... that might be true except in this instance. For most of the three episodes things moved along fairly believably... except that it was somewhat difficult seeing the to leads together for a majority of the time. Don't know what it really was, but they just did not at all gel together. Anyway, we then arrive at the final few minutes, and all credibility is chucked completely out the window, with an ending so ludicrous it defies all logic. Hope this is not a growing trend, for this is now the second production viewed in succession that completely challenges in similar manner the intelligence of its' audience. Could easily have 'dreamed up' a couple different scenarios that would have better matched the preceding material.
