We're hoping BBC's post-apocalyptic series Outcasts will fill our space opera needs, and this new batch of character videos is delivering the dramatic goods. Sex, bondage, bitch slaps, and Jamie Bamber acting like some sort of gun-happy sociopath. Yes please! Meet the rest of the pioneers from the struggling colony of Carpathia.
Here's the official synopsis:
Settled in the town of Forthaven on Carpathia, the Outcasts are passionate about their jobs, confident of their ideals and optimistic about the future. They work hard to preserve what they've built on this planet they now call home, having embraced all the challenges that come with forging a new beginning.
They are led by President Tate and his core team of Stella, Cass and Fleur – they took charge and settled here first alongside Expeditionaries Mitchell and Jack.
They are a diverse group of individuals who left their old lives behind in extraordinary circumstances; promised a second chance at life they created a society, far away from their home, friends, family... and their pasts.
The planet offers the possibility for both corruption and redemption; while they try to avoid the mistakes made on Earth, inevitably our heroes cannot escape the human pitfalls of love, greed, lust, loss, and a longing for those they've left behind.
As they continue to work and live together they come to realise this is no ordinary planet... is there a bigger purpose at work? Mystery lurks around them and threatens to risk the fragile peace of Forthaven.
Outcasts airs Monday February 7th on BBC One
