Absolutely one of the best comedy movies of all time.
Well, the first episode is out of a new science fiction show on the BBC. I watched it really hoping it would be a good program. I went over every detail of this 1 hour and 1-minute show. After reviewing the entire episode and trying to be as objective as possible I found the story was weak, the actual script failed to suspend disbelief and was also poorly written. To make matters worse, the lead female character has a terrible Yorkshire accent that made many words indecipherable or it was necessary to pause the program to try to figure out what was being said. (to be clear, I have understood Ozzy Osborne's Brummie at times better than this person. I have had no problem understanding ANY other British actor in 50 years!) If she needs an accent, she should learn to enunciate! The acting on the part of the lead female was not believable at all, one-dimensional and seemed overacted at times. For example: "Whenever I am asked for help, I never refuse" was a line way over the top! I cringed over most of her performance. This is really consistent with her other work in Broadchurch, Venus or Trust Me so not entirely unexpected. The poor script probably did not help either. The opening was slow but the pace picked up after about 41 minutes. The episode also required a lot of exposition but that was also expected. The violence was also on the higher end and would probably not be good for a younger viewer. The ending scene was not just unbelievable but plain silly. The production and writing crew are completely new and comprised of a majority of females. Now, this really should not matter in any other circumstance. But the obvious feminist overtones are clear and really are distracting from creating a quality science fiction program. I understand this will become worse and more noticeable as the show progresses. Overall this episode was a big disappointment. Hopefully, one day the BBC will see they need to bring back Doctor Who and not this experiment in poor science fiction.
