Ben Stephenson (him at the Beeb) has been widely quoted for a Broadcast interview in which he said, inter alia, "We'll also be focusing on how we can reinvent genre drama like crime and to a lesser extent sci-fi." See here for a bit of context.
Well, funnily enough, Ben, I'm working on something in that kind of area right now. Give me a few weeks to polish it, and all your problems are solved!
Except that I have a feeling there might be one or two other writers out there who think they've got a crime/sci-fi reinvention that'll tickle his fancy.
Mine's the one you want, Ben. Drop me a line, and we'll do lunch.
