Pulse on the iPlayer

Thanks very much for all the kind comments about Pulse overnight, everyone. I'll let you know when the ratings come in. The bunch of folk we saw it with squealed in all the right places, which was good fun. We've all got a good feeling about how it went.

Those living in the UK can now see the pilot on the BBC iPlayer here.

And we've now got loads of comments on the BBC3 Blog. Which is awesome. If you've seen it and liked it, please add your voice. Cheerio!

    Paul: I thought you'd like another review to add to the collection. I do a bit of writing on weekends for Monsters and Critics, which is a bit more mainstream than scifipulse.net

    The editor forgot to place the BBC iPlayer link in though. So I'll likely ask her about that:)

    Pulse was really good, but left me disappointed that I couldn't skyplus episode 2. I really hope you get to develop this further as I've not seen a better medical drama since the first series of Cardiac Arrest.

    I also enjoyed the slightly askew setting - felt like London, but isolated and a bit different.

    Fingers Crossed!

    Good to see it reach iPlayer - doe you know if the BBC is planning to make it available (for the usual price) via iTunes as well?

    As someone who missed it on TV, it's been good to see it online (via preview and iPlayer), but a high-quality more permanent copy would be very nice, if only to tide me over until season 1 (hopefully) arrives!

    when are the ratings unveiled? Curious to see how well PULSE has done!

  • Paul Cornell Says:

    Thanks, all. It's not on ITunes now, which probably means it won't be, sorry. If we go to series, I'm sure it will. We'll know the ratings by Wednesday, I should think. Will let you know!

    Pulse was absolutely cracking and I've left my twopence worth on the BBC3 blog. Fingers crossed for series.

    Paul - I'm putting together a book of my adventures with Jon and Tom during the 70s. Would you write a foreword for it? As License Denied proved, you know more about fandom than anyone!

    Thanks very much, Keith. Since it's you, when you've got a publisher, let me know.
