5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent version of a classic British sci-fi!, 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yet another brilliant version of a classic British story by Mark Gattiss!

An excellent character-led plot, Victorian-genre sci-fi with the style, ambience and visualisation of Georges Melies' A Trip To The Moon.

This is recommended to all sci-fi, Victoriana and Gattiss fans! I thoroughly enjoyed it!

5.0 out of 5 stars British drama at its best., 20 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Broadchurch [DVD] (DVD)
With a brilliant cast of actors, a very well written script, difficult subject matter and an unexpected twist at the end, Broadchurch is a brilliant British drama series. Must be seen!

2.0 out of 5 stars It Could Have Been So Much Better!, 28 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This remake is definitely not in the same league as the original BBC series. It's very much a precis of the original and as such lacks essential details regarding character and plot. I appreciate that thirty years separates the original from this remake - it could still have been so much better than this attempt at contemporizing Terry Nation's brilliant ideas about the decimation of the human population by The Death. I am disappointed with this recent BBC attempt at post-apocalyptic Britain. I'll go back and watch the original!
I recently viewed the original BBC series, Survivors, from 1975-77 and thoroughly enjoyed this extremely good, character lead drama. Each episode was very well produced by Terence Dudley and based around a theme which all characters responded to in their own unique way, touching some very ethically difficult areas as they proceeded to a great finale. There was no grandiose Sci-Fi based around research scientists in high security bunkers, which plays a key role in the remake! Observing how people would realistically react to the end of the world on a day by day basis made the original series so much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Edith Piaf, 31 Oct 2011
A classic theme song by the great Edith Piaf. A great woman with a troubled life, from beginning to end; this song showing great courage in the face of life's adversities and tragedies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Skrillex!, 31 Oct 2011
A great example of the originality of electro-house/metalcore man of the moment, Sonny Moore aka Skrillex. This is the title track of the album released in 2010 - with other great songs - Kill Everyone & Ruffnecks. All really catchy songs with a dark theme and dark sound! Great stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Day of the Triffids, 27 Sep 2011
A John Wyndham post-apocalyptic classic - based on paranoia about the USSR throughout the cold war. Great character expression and genuine horror! A must for any Sci-Fi fan!

1.0 out of 5 stars Biological Sciences 1&2, 27 Sep 2011
After ordering this title twice from World of Books Ltd, I was surprised and shocked that it didn't arrive. They were paid and the item was allegedly dispatched - it did not arrive!
