So, people are all saying what a waste of time and a dissapointment this show is. But i beg to diassagree with them. I found the show funny in places (especially Dolly!), emotional at times (Gillian's mother and her quest), sometimes romantic (ben and gillian), objective, an interesting insight into archaelogy and unusual historical events (joan of arc etc.), strong objections to political issues (Iraq for example) and overall a very balanced show.
Lots of similarities between this show and Primeval. Both are underrated, both have a rude, annoying boss who doesn't know what he's doing. And both have brilliant teams as the main feature of the show
Also, I liked the fact that the show borrowed actors from Torchwood and Doctor who! Owen and the real captain Jack from torchwood and Tish from Doctor who!! So to conclude - a fair show, and underrated!!
