I was wondering if it would be possible to please have a catergory for the BBC show 'Outcasts' which has recently started broadcasting here in the United Kingdom. I'm aware that it's new and only has 8 episodes within it's first series. However while you could argue that the show isn't well known enough to get it's own catergory yet, I believe that fans of show could have a lot of fun writing stories for Outcasts. This is because the tv show is set in the future on another planet and not much information is known about the characters within it and this would allow for a lot of freedom in exploring the storyline and the characters in further depth.

Outcasts is set in the middle of the twenty-first century on Carpathia, a "Goldilocks" planet five years' travel from Earth (named after the RMS Carpathia, the ship that went to rescue the Titanic). Carpathia is being colonised by a succession of spaceships arriving from Earth. Most of the planet's population live within the pioneer town of Forthaven, first settled ten years ago. The Carpathians live in ignorance of Earth's fate, receiving news only through the few evacuee transporter ships that successfully achieve the difficult atmospheric entry to Carpathia.

The story focuses on the President, Richard Tate, and core members of the Protection and Security (PAS) team, as well as expeditionaries, whose role is to explore the planet and retrieve resources and medicines. With the arrival of CT-9 – perhaps the last transporter that will reach Carpathia from Earth – storylines involve the ongoing lives of the existing settlers, the induction of new evacuees into the Forthaven community and the effect of others living outside its walls unknown to most of the settlers.

It stars: Liam Cunningham, Hermione Norris, Amy Manson, Daniel Mays, Jamie Bamber, Ashley Walters, Eric Mabius and Michael Legge.

So yeah I'm a fan of the show and I think it would be awesome if the show got it's own catergory because there's a lot to play around with and explore with this one. Another reason why I'm requesting this is because I've already started writing my own fan fic for Outcasts centering around the character Tipper Malone (Played by Actor Michael Legge) who is an Irish Charmer and a bit of a rebel of sorts who speaks out against the authorities representing the voice of the displaced youth. He is also a former child genius but following his arrival upon Carpathia he has since chosen to live like a layabout rather than put his talent to good use. It is hinted that the reason behind this is that it was his mathematical skills that allowed him to be accepted onto the earth evacuation program but not his four sisters (which it is apparent that he cared for them a lot) meaning that he was forced to leave them behind and so Tipper doesn't like to be reminded of the thing that 'saved' him but not his sisters.

So if Outcasts could get it's own catergory that would be awesome because i could upload the story i've started about Tipper. =D

Thanks very much for your time and help and I'm sorry that this post is soooooo long.

I totally agree with you, it's an amazing series. It hasn't got the greatest of reviews, but there are still a lot of people who really enjoy the series, and I think you're definitely right about it having potential as fan fiction :D

I've got my fingers crossed for a second series!!!! I hope they do continue, because they've certainly invested a lot of time and money in it and I think it would be a shame to waste it when it's doing such a great job for us who actually like it!!!

Final tonight, AHHHH!
