Hi folks,

I have just seen the trailer for the new BBC1 science fiction series “outcasts” which will be seen on BBC1 at 9pm on monday 7th February 2011.

It looks interesting and is about a group of courageous pioneers who face a unique opportunity: the chance to build a new and better future on another planet, Carpathia.

Here is a brief summary of story:-

Led by President Tate (Cunningham) and his core team of Stella (Norris), Cass (Mays) and Fleur (Mason), they take charge having settled alongside Expeditionaries Mitchell and Jack. A diverse group of individuals who left their old lives behind, now promised a second chance at life they create a society, far away from their home, friends, family and pasts. Settled in the town of Forthaven on Carpathia, they are passionate about their jobs, confident of their ideals and optimistic about the future.

The planet offers the possibility for both corruption and redemption; while they try to avoid the mistakes made on Earth, inevitably our heroes cannot escape the human pitfalls of love, greed, lust, loss, and a longing for those they’ve left behind.

As they continue to work and live together they come to realise this is no ordinary planet… is there a bigger purpose at work? Mystery lurks around them and threatens to risk the fragile peace of Forthaven.

Sounds interesting doesn’t it and I will probably watch the 1st episode just to see if it is any good or not.

Here is the trailer to wet your appetite…

So what do you think? Will this be a hit or miss for the BBC? Let me know what you think?

    Do you remember Castaway, which was set on a remote Scottish island? Some of the challenges in Outcasts seem similar.
