We're all entitled to our opinions. It stopped amazing me a while back that I hate things that other people seem to love. e.g. I hated the new Survivors revival but other love it, I detest Torchwood, but its on its second series. I think all the reasons for disliking the BTE episodes have been set out but many others on here. Its writing is poor, the positioning of the characters is weak, you just don’t buy that there's any real jeopardy comedic or otherwise. I also can't make out much of a storyline although I agree with most others that its probably a warmed over reworking of 'Back to reality'. The thing that really kills it for me though is the 4th wall stuff. In fact with the name checking of the station its more like they've demolished the wall and built a patio in your front room. It just completely ruined the fantasy element of the show and that's what has always driven it in my opinion. Its always suspended disbelief so well in the past, its in the perfect position as a tongue in cheek comedy in a sci-fi environment where they can simply invent any scenario or device to move the plot forward, sideways or upside down. So why in the midst of that would you choose to plonk them back on current day earth, and have them self referencing themselves so repetitively, when once or twice should be enough to build up some tension. Then throw in the kitchen sink with all the Blade Runner stuff, Coronation Street, the potential that they are going to further destroy the illusion by having the characters 'meet' themselves in another REAL current TV show and its just too sad for words. I'll go along with pushing the envelope but this is going to crash and burn, sorry but it just is. Its completely out of step with what the whole thing was about and its stinks of a cheap shot by a minor TV station and a writer desperate to breathe life back into what is probably the only thing he'll ever be remembered for. If it really was done for ‘the fans’ I think someone, at some point, somewhere, should have taken a step back and realised that we deserve better than this. Perhaps if they hadn’t been so bloody rushed by Dave someone would have. But that's my definition of a travesty I guess. Other definitions of equal or better value are also available.
