If you’re in the UK and have Freeview, you can watch tonight the pilot of Pulse, a medical horror-drama by Paul Cornell (of Doctor Who/Captain Britain/Bernice Summerfield/54,082 other things fame). It’s actually been available on iPlayer for a while [1], but I’m old-fashioned enough to enjoy sitting down in front of the telly and knowing that lots of other people are having the same experience. It’s on BBC3 at 9pm as part of a season of drama pilots, meaning that if there’s enough enthusiasm, we might get more of it. No spoilers here, of course, except to say that it’s terribly well-directed (by James Hawes of The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances), that there are some terrific performances from Stephen Campbell Moore (The History Boys) and Claire Foy (Little Dorrit), and that it really did creep me out.

[1] If you’re not in the UK, sorry, but I think the iPlayer link won’t work for you and so you’d need some kind of magic to be able to see it.
