There are honestly no words that can adequately describe how awful that episode was. First of all that episode was not set in London at all, in no way. I've been to London many times and it does not look like it did in that episode, it was so SO obviously some back lot somewhere in America. and maybe if you've never been to England you'd have thought it was fine but contrary to popular belief we are not all called " Archie " and say "bloody" every 5 words.
That was set in the modern day i'm assuming, to be honest there are no red phone boxes anymore. And just because they randomly placed some doesn't make it anymore like England.
And what was with that old mans accent??! seriously one minute it was cockney then the next it was some kind of Yorkshire! There was no purpose for basically anything that happened, the giant cat i think it was, offering the women a cigarette or a "fag" was so pointless and stupid and what the hell was with the ending really? A giant tentacle monster thing came out of the ground and took her husband away ( and turned him into a cat i think?). it made no sense what so ever! AND then the old man said something like " Oh no its happened again"? if something like that had happened before people would know.
I am a huge Stephen King fan but if I were him, I would not have put my name to that at all, i'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and say maybe it makes a better book than it does programme and I can only hope that next weeks one is better.
