Entertaining show, though sometimes a little random
23 December 2008 | by PominatorSee all my reviews

"Clone" is one of the many recent 6 part shows that BBC3 has been experimenting with, and just like coming of age and how not to live your life, it has hit the right spot for me, the plot lines are very funny, though rather random at times, luckily never straying into "mighty boosh" levels of randomness, (they just ruin a show), the characters are all brilliantly acted, showing a real variety between them: There is the titular "Clone" the superhuman killing machine that has come out of the test tube as docile as a baby with the killing instinct of a baby canary His creator, Victor, played brilliantly by John Pryce, trying to keep his "son" alive whilst finding a way to bring back his dangerous powers, at the same time believing himself to be a real ladies man, unbeknownst to him, that most see him as a lecherous old man. Colonel Black is undoubtedly the most brilliant character in the show, played by Mark Gatiss, he tries to be the most evil man alive, whilst trying to fight off the fact that he is an extremely closeted bender, his moments of weakness (after a few whiskey drams apparently) are brilliant, with him ending up killing the people who have seen him in this different light. Rose, the barmaid in the show is brilliant as a sarcastic young lady whose brain possesses all of the characteristics needed to return the clone to full working order.

Put together this cast makes the show one of the most entertaining modern comedies I have seen yet, though not being a 2 pints, it has the same charm as an '80s comedy, whilst drawing heavily on modern pop references.

I give it an 8/10 for brilliant characters, fantastic acting and a hilarious plot
