Trivia

The production was broadcast live to mirror A for Andromeda (1961). The same was true of The Quatermass Experiment (2005), which was a remake of The Quatermass Experiment (1953). Both A for Andromeda (1961) and The Quatermass Experiment (1953) are acclaimed BBC science fiction serials which are largely missing from the archives. See more »

i enjoyed it
30 March 2006 | by a_ross84See all my reviews

unlike everyone else here, i enjoyed it thoroughly. granted, i am not old enough to remember the original, i believe this to be an advantage. i had nothing to compare it to. on its own it is an excellent piece of British SCI FI. i enjoyed it a lot i am going to find the original now and watch that. but i will not compare them. like Battlestar Gallactica. you cant really compare them, so why bother. i know it is a remake but it doesn't mean have to compare them does it. secondly who cares about some minor holes in the science of it. does it detract from the enjoyment of the show? there are so many shows that don't follow the science of today so why should this?

all in all i really liked this. well done the BBC.
