I liked it but as some have said I'm not sure where it's going I mean we know what happens near the end but not why and how. Good cast of up and coming actors but maybe it's too soon to judge the character but why have they cast Jenna Louise Coleman as the sort of girlfriend/work colleague with benefits of Stanley? So far she has had about 5 lines and it just seems odd to have the current toast of the BBC in such a non role. In no way am I saying she should have been Sara or Pamela but hopefully the role will fill out a bit. Always funny when you get people who are in two things in quick succession such as the girl who plays Sara was in Spies of Warsaw a few weeks ago as the lead female Anna and the guy who plays Wesley is in the Lewis episode over on ITV at 9

Looking forward to seeing the rest and seeing where the story will take us.
Bit ambiguous but this article implies Jenna was actually cast in DW after her role in this - and more clearly BTW, a similar result for Joanna (Pamela) who played Denise in The Paradise
