Pulse Tonight!

Well, it's broadcast night for Pulse (9pm, BBC3, a mantra which, afterwards, I can finally let slip from my brain!) I don't know why I'm so nervous, it's not like the little people in the TV set are going to do anything different on the night. In the last couple of days, I've done so many interviews that I've lost track, including but not limited to Pink Raygun, On TV Tonight, Velcro City, and Sky TV. I've written a blog about the creation of a particular scene for the BBC Writers' Room. The press conference after the preview is featured in two podcasts by the Geek Syndicate and we got a great review on BBC Radio 5's Richard Bacon Show, about one hour and fifty-six minutes in. Through it all, Tom Hunter's being doing a fantastic job of summarising the coverage for our Facebook fan page. On Twitter, our hashtag is #pulsebbc3. I gather that the Aylesbury SF Group are meeting up to watch it together. If you're nearby, why not get in touch and pop along?

And of course those in the UK can see the whole episode online now here. Though I gather that gets taken down sometime today, presumably at the moment of broadcast. From then on, the pilot should be on the BBC IPlayer, and I'll provide a link when it appears.

If you see the pilot tonight and enjoy it, please make sure to leave a comment on either the BBC 3 Blog or at their Facebook site. The bigger the response, the more chance we've got of going to series.

Thanks very much, everyone, for all your support in the run up to broadcast. I really hope you enjoy it. You'll see how much hard work that fine cast and crew have put into it. Let us know what you think. Until tomorrow, Cheerio!

    Good luck, Paul! Please keep us Americans posted on how we can support Pulse; it sounds awesome.


  • Ian Cullen Says:

    Good luck. I'll be watching.

    May the Pulse be with you!

    I'm looking forward to this, even though I don't usually like the horror genre.

    It was one of the day's picks in today's Metro with a positive write-up as well.

    We would never see the pilot of a US show before it got, as you say, commissioned.

    This way seems so much better. I can't begin to tell you how many pilots I wish I could have seen, starting with the NBC-David Tennant pilot, which I know exists in DVD form somewhere in Los Angeles.

    I really enjoyed Pulse, me and my pal jumped a few times - which never happens. I can't wait for more (I have faith).

    I'll go and say nice things at the Facebook page since, as usual, the BBC registration fails!

    Well done to you and everyone involved, this was gripping drama.

    Hiya, Paul. Really enjoyed Pulse. Somwhere between Bodies, Aliens and Quatermass. You should get a series out of that. I mean, come on!
