I watched the whole show when it aired. The first episode was ok, but way better after The Doctor showed up, yet every episode was weaker from then on. I tried to keep giving it chances, and before I knew it the show was over, so it never lived up to its potential. Now I know the audios take place during season one, but how are they? Did BF do them justice, or are they the same meh as the show?
Now this was an interesting experiment. In my view they should have promoted this better and had it as it's own series rather than connected loosely to Doctor Who.
The basic ideas were sound, I liked the characters and the performances. With a clearer idea of where the series wanted to go and other writers with Patrick Ness as showrunner it could have had been a new sci-fi adventure series for the teenagers or young adults.
I don't think the BBC were that interested in it. I loved Katherine Kelly, the titles were memorable and the alien threats varied and sometimes scary. Potential, certainly. I wil certainly investigate the Big Finish version when funds permit.
Quite underrated, from my perspective, despite its numerous flaws. While I'm disappointed that a second series wasn't produced, I'm glad that BF has managed to revive the show on audio and fill in the gaps.
