So... I was just sitting around waiting for "Bat out of Hell" to update when I thought I'd take a peek at this. :D I'm not familiar with the original, but your story stands well on its own. A real nail biter. Please keep writing!

Wow, that was great! I loved it! You really had the characters spot on, I could almost hear them speaking!

Oh I like this.

Tons of pace, really gripping & with nice ashes style ending - leaves us guessing! Would love to hear more about what Gene knows, though, and what that means! if you ever think about a sequel, that is!

Lovely ending to a lovely story. Worth it just for the image of Gene on a motorbike :-)

Oh, wow! I can keep going for days on the vision of Gene on a motorbike, black coat streaming out behind him. “Saving your life and my car, though not necessarily in that order”, what a very Gene remark! A most exciting conclusion to the story. More soon, please!

Oh, no! What was I saying about cliffhangers? Surely Gene will give chase as soon as he realises she's taken the keys. And will she be blown up and get back home, or just get blown up? (At least she got to kiss him on the way...) Put us out of our suspense soon! Please!

This is getting really good. The deciphering of the Irish conundrum (and Shaz, as usual, coming up with the really helpful information) is spot on, and some of the dialogue - “Looks impressive, but plays hell with your hips” and "that lot couldn’t find a fanny in a convent" - sounds as though it comes straight from the series. In the middle of it all, the sudden, sharp pang of Alex's memory of Molly. And a nice cliffhanger to finish! Great.

No! She can't do that!

Don't let her do that! Please!

Can't wait for the next chapter!

This was great - loved the puzzle, and the teamwork in getting the answer. Really liked Shaz's line about regional folklore - brilliantly in character. Looking forward to the next chapter.

Interesting chapter - great plot development and especially nice use of Shaz as the brains who partly solves the puzzle.
theHuntgoeson chapter 2 . 1/25/2009
Ah, an IRA threat with a cryptic clue to liven things up. Better get Viv onto that. Before that, I enjoyed the banter between Gene and Alex. More soon, please.
theHuntgoeson chapter 1 . 1/25/2009
NIce atmospheric start - maybe the beginning of Series 2 will be something like this. I look forward to more.
Siggy chapter 2 . 1/25/2009
A good intruguing start and am looking forward to more
