It must be tough to schedule certain programmes in what has turned out to be the first decent summer in this country for about seventy years.
It's surprising that, in the wake of The Mighty Boosh, there haven't been more pretenders to the comedy crown of Mssrs Barratt and Fielding. Dave's exclusive new show Zimbani tries, but epically fails.
The first show to air as part of BBC Three's 2010 pilot season (the last of which in 2008 gave us Being Human), Pulse arrives with a style and content that would frankly be better suited to the long dark evenings of winter than the bright and warm evenings of the summer months.
Do you remember what The Doctor told Amy when she was seven years old? And, more to the point, do you remember what we told you in our review for 'Flesh And Stone'? Just two little words: continuity errors.
Say it quietly, but there’s not a lot in post-2005 Who that feels like old-Who. Don’t you just want just one old-fashioned, creepy, gloopy, slimy horror, with smoke-filled corridors and actors in green rubber suits?
So, what’s your theory? Is it all an experiment? Are Sam Tyler and Alex Drake (Keeley Hawes) figments of Shaz’s imagination? Is there, indeed, Life On Mars?
'Amy's Choice', at first glance, is one of those episodes where the plot is running on the spot. But it’s certainly not running on empty.
