How Very Disappointing
1 February 2014 | by Sperry23See all my reviews

What could have been another excellent spin-off fails in so very many respects.

The interesting story ideas are thoroughly demolished by poor scripts. The writers were doing something that was never done in Dr. Who or any of its other spin-offs; They talk down to the audience. The writers also indulge in the use of "Hack-Writers Gambit". HWG can be best described as the practice of putting the protagonists in deadly danger, then shifting the scene to show them as having escaped with little or no explanation of how they did so.

The characters are flat. There is no depth to them at all. Worse, they are, for the most part, completely unsympathetic. There is no reason for the audience to care what happens to them at all.

Additionally, the program is hampered by poor acting. While the actors are mostly experienced, all too often they are either just running lines or chewing the scenery. It certainly doesn't look like they are having much fun on the set. It really does show, you know.

The sets and lighting are from the 60's. They are very much reminiscent of the early Dr. Who shows in their amateurishness.

I had such high hopes for this show. And I am so disappointed.
