We went to see Evermore at the Hallam Hotel last night. This isn't them, this is one of the support bands (there were four). We don't know their names. Evermore were good, but Children Collide (another support band, not above) were rock-tastic. Keep an eye out for them, they're good.

a demonstration passing by our office. they want howard out now, but they could just wait a couple of months until the election. oh well.
I sold this to my wife with "it's written by the same bloke that did Blink and The Empty Child" (Stephen Moffat). That was enough, but the fact that it also has the man from Cold Feet (James Nesbitt) as Doctor Jackman/Jekyll was a bonus.
It is a perfect example of all that's good about British TV. Great acting, a willingness to take risks, 6 episodes of excitement and edginess with no filler. If it had been an American production for one of their big networks, it would have been at least 22 episodes long, all written by different teams of 5 writers, and 19 of those episodes would not have advanced the story one bit. They would have been very glossy though. The last episode of the "season" would have been forced to end on a cliffhanger to set up season two, which would then be cancelled.
Anyway, watch it if you get the chance. It kicks the arse off anything else on the telly and then eats their ears.
