    As a result of hearing your first podcast on this series I obtained the DVDs and watched them yesterday. I found it superb and was dispointed that the second series was cancelled. My suspicion is that people to day prefer much faster paced, action packed episodes – as with the old and new Dr Who series, I prefer the old..

    In your second Outcasts podcast you mention that the population of Forthaven seemed to be in the thousands, but that no particular figure is mentioned. I am pretty sure, given that I only watched it yesterday, that in one of the last two episodes the figure of 70,000 was mentioned.

    Thanks for that, Alan. It’s always wonderful to hear about someone watching a show on our advice. I do prefer the slower pacing of the older shows, but I think this one did have few issues. All in all, I did like it. That “70 000” figure does indeed sound familiar. Take care.
