|09:37 am - Outcasts|
Thanks to calapine for pointing out the trailer for Outcasts (youtube link), which seems to be a new BBC SF show! Starring Hermione Norris, who is literally my favourite British TV actor. She is 'Head of Protection and Security'. So, stone cold killer as usual. Excellent.
Oh, and Daniel Mays who I thought was so very good as 'Discipline and Complaints Officer' Keats in Ashes to Ashes.
Here is the BBC site for the show. It seems to be about colonists on a new planet. No broadcast date yet.
(ETA Kudos Productions say 'probably in February')
Thanks to lj friends for more info: getawaywithit says 'Fridays at 9pm after the current series of Hustle ends - which I guess means it'll start on the 18th.' and altariel points to news about the show on the Kudos site.
Gods of the Tellybox, I implore you, let this not stink.
I don't know who is writing and directing. It's Kudos Productions, who did Life on Mars and Spooks. And - aargh - Law and order UK.
Writer seems to be Ben Richards
; he's done some Spooks
. And director is Bharat Nalluri. Kudos page here
Thanks for that. Could be OK. Filmed in South Africa I see. I think they are trying for a BSG feel.
That was my thought too. I really hope it's good and not like the Survivors remake. TV SF can sometimes be so pompous.
Please please please let this be as great as it looks, and no another The Deep!
I heard that it'll be on Fridays at 9pm after the current series of Hustle ends - which I guess means it'll start on the 18th.
Thanks I have put that up.
