THIS POLL IS NOW CLOSED.
Thanks to everyone who voted...interesting results! Watch out for a follow-up poll at the end of the series (if Kudos doesn't say anything first!)





 Now we are part way through the new series I wanted to get some input on what you think of Ashes to Ashes. Please answer these questions bearing in mind that there are still six episodes to go. I will post a similar poll at the end of the series to compare the results.

I'm going to give it up to episode five (yes, I know that's beyond halfway) before I really pass judgement. Which isn't to say I haven't rambled on about it at length, because I have - just that I don't want to completely condemn it just yet.

I have to be honest and say straight off that I don't like Alex. She is to 'knowing' and it feels as though Keeley Hawes is playing her for laughs.

However, I do find the setting fun - it's not LOM and it shouldn't try to be but it is certainly from the same stable. I do hope that we see a little more of the old Gene Hunt...he appears to have lost his way a little.

Well, we have six more eps for it to come good. We are measuring it against some very fine TV if we try to compare it to LOM. Perhaps I should cut it a little more slack...after all it's not like anything else on TV at the moment.

I'm trying really hard not to compare it to LoM, but then Ash does things like poke fun at us with the Quattro not going through boxes moment, and, well, it's obvious that some comparisons must be made.

I find it very hard to like television shows when I don't like the main protagonist or can't connect with them. And no, I don't like Alex.

I actually really loved Gene's characterisation in Ep 1 - he was quiet and a bit miserable and he covered Alex with a blanket, which is the best thing ever. And then he seemed to regress in Ep 2, to an even darker Gene. It's the inconsistency that I find difficult to keep up with.
