The Null Device

Coming soon, from the BBC

The BBC's "edgy", yoof-oriented BBC Three channel, has revealed six new drama series due to be screened later this year:
Being Human, from Touchpaper TV and Doctor Who writer Toby Whithouse, follows three co-habiting flatmates. One is a vampire, one is a ghost and the other a werewolf.
Mrs Inbetweeny tells the story of siblings who are brought up by their pre-op transsexual aunt Emma from America.
Phoo Action is a kung fu live action drama set in 2012 London, which is in the grip of mutant criminals. Terry Phoo and Whitey Action - the first a Buddhist cop and the second an anarchist - step in to save the day.
W10 LDN, from Noel Clarke and Kudos, looks at the lives led by a group of young teenagers on a housing estate in West London.
The last one sounds like they're trying to jump on the Lily Allen cool-street-hip-hop bandwagon, which could possibly sell. But Phoo Action?

Phoo Action is the one that mosts interests me...I'm always interested to see anarchists save the world.

Transsexuals, Buddhists, political outcasts and non-human minorities? This is political correctness gone wrong!!! Hell, handcarts, etc...

A vampire, a werewolf and a ghost? It sounds like breakfast cereals deciding to share the rent.

Sounds like Grant Morrison joined the writing team to me...
