To be fair and its only IMO, its only 2 things really didn't work.
Writing wise its only Dr Russell that's a bit off, she's a bit too in everyone's face for a bit too long, we keep rehashing her take on the situation rather than advance the story.
Production wise (and this probably can't be helped) loooooooong Music cues to cover for the fact you can't see the Model shots.
Yes i wondered about how i would feel about the new Dr Russell but eventually i didn’t mind her take. I have given a few listens after initial hesitancy and as long as they do a set with definite end, i do not mind ,it all depends on what type of stories they deliver really.It could turn into something fantastic. But and this is not a dig at Mr Briggs as he is very enthusiastic about most stuff (except The Boy That time Forgot-he was allowed an opinion once) But he is too far stretched and involved in too many things when i feel he should turn his attention to finishing things he has begun Charlotte for example and yes the Prisoner and maybe that Jekyll and Hyde thing.He seems to want to be the first involved when ideally he should be overseeing things. It may be a case of getting writers different to the usual ones to script them. Not that the BF writers are in any way incompetent at all...its another space drama,but hey i may be surprised i will see what the second set is like then decide,and i wasnt even going to try this one.
