    No start date yet but its been shown on BBC One has the trailer and it could be ok or another Beeb flop.

    With Earth no longer habitable, a group of courageous pioneers have traveled to another planet to begin again. They've built the town of Forthaven on Carpathia and have the unique opportunity of creating a new and better future on another planet. Led by President Tate (Liam Cunningham, Clash Of The Titans) and his core team of Stella (Hermione Norris, MI-5), Cass (Daniel Mays, Atonement) and Fleur (Amy Manson, Being Human), they're determined to run the civilization in a democratic way, but some tough decisions in the past may prove divisive.
    As the series begins, it's a moment of incredible anticipation. Forthaven has lost all contact with Earth but the arrival of the last known transporter, with Julius Berger (Eric Mabius of Ugly Betty) on board, signals fresh hopes and dreams. But why does President Tate seem anxious about the imminent arrival of Berger and will the transporter land safely with Stella's husband and daughter, who she heartbreakingly left behind?
    Meanwhile those appointed Expeditionaries, Mitchell (Jamie Bamber, Battlestar Galactica) and Jack (Ashley Walters, Hustle), have a mission to explore the new planet and bring back vital information to the settlement. Will they find other life out there, or do they truly have the planet to themselves?
    The settlers are a diverse group of individuals who left their old lives behind in extraordinary circumstances. They've been promised a second chance but are far away from home, friends, family and their pasts. Passionate about their jobs, confident of their ideals and optimistic about the future, they work hard to preserve what they've built on the planet they now call home.
    Carpathia offers the possibility of redemption as the new inhabitants try to avoid the mistakes made on Earth. Inevitably they cannot escape the human pitfalls of love, greed, lust, loss, corruption and a longing for those they've left behind. As they continue to work and live together, they come to realize this is no ordinary planet. Is there a bigger purpose at work? Is the peace of Forthaven more fragile than they think?

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    This starts Monday 7th February at 9pm on BBC1. 2 episodes over 2 days. Worth a look, I reckon.

    This.

    This, on the other hand sounds a bit more like that underwater thing they had on last year - what was that called. It was a bit rubbish, although entertaining enough for me to watch to the end.

    According to IMDB it was called 'the deep'. Funny how I can forget that in less than four months.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Sounds like Martian Chronicles. Awesome, BBC are so good at scifi, their track record for the last 10 years has been exemplary. Doctor Who, Torchwood, that other shit... and all the other shit they've made. Nigel Kneale would be so impressed.

    Plubs

    I find the writing standards on most recent BBC programs of this type are dreadful so I am not to hopefully for this. That underwater thing that did with Jimmy Nesbit was appalling.

    British sci-fi so it's 99% guaranteed to be a fail but suppose I'll try it.

    I predict most of the posts here tomorrow will be picking out plot holes and saying it was crap.
    I also predict that my missus will record it on our PVR and we will watch it about a week behind, this keeping me out of this thread to avoid spoilers.

    God, I hate sci-fi where the sci-fi element is just a backdrop for a half arsed study on the human condition.

    OMG! WE ARE ON ANOTHER PLANET AND STILL KILLING EACH OTHER!!!!!

    They might as well have set it in the fucking wild west.

    EastEnders on the moon.

    They carry a harpoon
    but there ain't no whales so they tell tall tales
    and sing their whaling tune.

    Why is this even a sci-fi? They might as well have set it in London, as far as I can tell.
