Quotes

[first lines]
Ryan Sinclair: So today I want to talk about the greatest woman I've ever met. Smart, funny, caring, special, proper special... Where do I start? Okay, I've mentioned this on here before, I'm pretty much not an idiot. I'm actually a capable guy considering. But I'm 19, and 'cause of the thing I told you about before, I can't yet ride a bike.

Meh
7 October 2018 | by danzornySee all my reviews

Good camera work, good lighting, good sound design. Technically well made. However the characters felt a bit generic for me, hopefully they get a bit more fleshed out. Script was a bit meh, felt a little flat at times. Some good comedy bits but mostly dark stuff. Very obvious plot points and concequences.

Main question though, does it feel like doctor who? Honestly, not currently, but it is only the first episode.

How's Jodie? She's alrite. The other characters didn't stand out for me. I would've preferred one companion.

Overall just ok. While technically well made, the story didnt really do much for me.
