A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Saw Utopia and Sound of Drums earlier today on the Sagem recorder.

What a stinkfest of a story.

Actors aside, this takes the series back to Sylvester McCoy days in terms of script writing.

The Time Machine was plaguarised for the two civilisation split at the end of the universe/time.
Chalk/china mine manhunt courtesy of any number of 70's Sci-Fi offerings,
security courtesy of a chicken wire fence,
and flippin' Cloudbase.

Homage to Captain Scarlet ? my arse, more like a dogs dinner.

I must admit I was very disturbed with all the religious imagery.

Let me see... A man that sends out a messenger to travel the Earth. A man returning from (near) death in a ball of glowing light. A man who offers forgiveness to a man who has tried to kill him. A man who responds to people thinking (praying?) his name all together.

I'm sure I could go on but that's enough to make me feel distinctly queasy. I'm sure I can't be alone in this.
