The Man From Another Place tells Cooper that "when you see me again, it won't be me." Although attempts were made to get Michael J. Anderson to return to the role for the revival, the end result was that it wasn't him, and rather than recast the role, the character was mutated into an electric tree. See more »

Great series...anti-climatic end
7 February 2016 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

What an unimaginative bore of a finale for a drama so full of fascinating characters and skewed, cliff-hanging story-telling.

I can't even begin to make sense of this mess, and I'm frustrated and disappointed, but even more angry that two incredible series could be ended with such a disjointed, confused, not to mention, amateurish wreck.

I yawned throughout the all the curtain-wafting, reversed speech, and appearing and vanishing characters, which lasted for an eternity, in lieu of any actual plot.

It's understandable that there perhaps wasn't much of a budget for the 'black house', but this took the biscuit. By the time the plot-twist occurred back in the real world, I didn't care anymore.

And what about all the story strands left unravelled? Unforgivable.

What a dull, tragic waste of build-up.
