The State Within, Episode 1
The first reviews of "The State Within" that I've been able to find so far are pretty favourable. Not much about Alex in there though. He did appear in a few scenes in the first episode but I have a feeling there is much more to come. The pace of the piece does seem to get some people confused. Contrary to what Julia said on the reviews page of the official BBC website, it wasn't Alex having "a gay snog", but two other characters, neither of whom looked remotely like Alex.
The BBC has updated the official website to include the viewers review page and a synopsis of episode one. There also are interviews with some of the actors, but Alex isn't in there (yet). For anyone hoping to catch the series later, reading the reviews might not be a good idea, there are a few spoilers in there.
