    Just noticed that the listing for the episode is 9:00-9:35.

    I did think the first episode was quite short, we had the credits, introduction, some chat, the diving bell and then a few corridor scenes, then it was over. It seems to be on for about 15 mins and then it ended. Plus the break seemed to come very close to the start of the episode.... Still, I shall be taping tonights to watch tomorrow just before Part 3 and the making of documentary are shown from 9pm onwards.

    That was my one and ONLY problem with it - too short!

    Otherwise it was amazing! Sick of reading anyone who can only criticise it because of it having no laugh track or too much CGI!

    Gimmie strength

    It obviously had to sacrifice 5 minutes or so for the ad break so I'm wondering if that's the reason tonight is 5 mins longer according to the listing. It did seem very short yesterday.

    The length was also the only thing that I really disliked. I do think it should have been just a single episode, but I'm sure there are good reasons for splitting it into three.

    My tv guide lists the slot times, part 2 as 35 mins and part 3 as 40 mins, hopefully this means that they will be close to the old length.

    It only seemed 2 short because we were all enjoying it so much

    Well, that and because it was a shorter episode than we're used to on account of the ad break :P

    This was a set up episode, and the diving bell and bunkroom scenes ate alot of time.
