Intelligent, well filmed
Loving the concept so far, some things are clearly included in the show because they'll be explained later.
What I've been wondering about is: if this show is set in our own time (iphones, ipads...), then it has to be a parallel reality because obviously we don't have robots and all that higly advanced technology that they have on the show, but if it is set in the future, say about a hundred years from now; why do they still have iphones and ipads with their robots?? If they can create fully functional and intelligent robots, then why has the technology not advanced enough to improve the technology of smart phones??
Yet another debate of is the BBC just cheap and I'm thinking too much into this, or is this done deliberately? You ddecide.
Hope every episode is as intriguing as the first one.
So far, so good!
First episode looks promising, I'm hooked already.
Finally! British science fiction - not over produced or over acted like most.This is an intriguing show with lots of directions explained in Ep1 , looking forward to seeing where it leads, loving the excellent music score.
