It’s a God-awful small affair…

Chris’ mention of Life on Mars prompts me to brag about the fact I’ve seen episode one, and on the basis of that, it looks great. Okay, I never find John Simm believable in anything other than a voiceover (he looks about 12!) but that aside, the show rarely hits a dud note.

It’s fantastically imaginative, and quite happy to weave a fairly complicated, esoteric storyline in the knowledge the audience will work alongside it to keep up. Of course, not having Carol Hersee on test card duty points to a future plot point (in that the thing will start to communicate to Simm), but now I’m showing off. It’s great, and it’s not too gratuitiously ’70s at that.
