Did You Know?


The ninth episode was originally "Death on the Moon", written by Philip Martin, but production was abandoned following industrial action at the BBC, and the cast and crew moved on to making the scheduled tenth episode and planned season finale "Little Green Men & Other Martians" by series creator Chris Boucher. It was initially hoped that more money would be made available to shoot the ninth episode after the tenth, and transmit it in its proper place, but this did not happen. See more »

We really enjoyed this series.
20 February 2005 | by juliajoySee all my reviews

'Star Cops' is one of the best sci-fi series we've watched in years. In the U.S. we are inundated with 'junk' situation comedies and copycat dramas, so the British shows we are offered are heartily welcomed.

We found this show innovative and very interesting. We really liked Nathan, and 'Box' was a clever touch. Even if it was just a 'crime in space' show as some people termed it, the characters became friends, and the tension and suspense were real to us. Nathan's reluctance at being posted in space was understated and believable, and made a recurring theme below each week's story. I definitely was able to immerse myself in the shows and 'become' one of the people stationed there and at risk in each episode's situation; unlike most American shows--and many movies--I wasn't looking at my watch every few minutes to see how much longer I was going to have to sit there. Thanks, U.K., for another series in the tradition of 'Doctor Who' (which is BRILLIANT). We're just sorry that it was on for only one season.
