The best thing I've seen in a while. It's eerie and addictive.
11 May 2004 | by illogica_jSee all my reviews

I am admittedly a BBC-ophile, and sci fi is a not-so guilty pleasure, but nonetheless very choosy. This show is excellent. The production looks great and the characters are lovable; save the villains. It's as good as any other long running well acclaimed series, and like the X-files clearly takes it's lead from the old Nightstalker series, with perhaps a little Dr. Who thrown in for good measure. I always hate to see Networks scrambling to imitate forerunning shows, while researchers sit mystified by demonhunting focus groups. Likewise, American versions of well done BBC productions always fall flat or stale (Cracker). This series was emulation worthy. I'm sorry to see it's two years to late to keep it on the tele. While Fox and WB fought over Buffy, sadly this show went unnoticed by Americans viewers. Hope we see Richard Coyle again soon.
