    "Wonderful storyline, shame about cast change"

    Loved both series, however it was a shame that Julian Rhind-Tutt did not get to play Field Commander Uljabaan in the second. He played the role perfectly.

    "2 series are just not enough"

    How is this little BBC gem not a huge global mega-hit? It's just superb. For a little-known series of half-hour episodes, it really punches above its weight. Well written, well acted, and very, very funny. The characters are likeable, and the world they inhabit is engaging.

    More of this, please, BBC.

    "Entertaining"

    Definitely better than the first series, nicely observed spin on village life, and worth it for the pub quiz episode alone.

    "It's okay, just not as good as the first series"

    The first series was funny and charming. Sadly, the jokes are rather tired in the second one. Julian Rhind-Tutt's absence is felt.

    "Even funnier than Series 1"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this on Radio 4, and now I've downloaded it I listen to it again and again. I'm the same with Season 1, but for me the stoned alien plants and Lucy's songs make Season 2 even funnier. Hilarious, warm and clever - love it!

    "an enjoyable comedy"

    A enjoyable comedy set in half hour shows .Not quite as good as the first series, but certainly passes the last out loud test.

    "Good sci-fi comedy"

    A sleepy English village is cut off from the wirld by invading aliens. A standard 1950s premise. But the Allen warlord has problems with budgets, dim underlings and his ex girlfriend. Th

    "Jolly good!"

    Great writing again but some of the story lines weren't as entertaining as Series 1. Julian Rhind Tutt is missed as the Field Commander. But an enjoyable series in its own right!

    "Great sci-if, comedy romp!"

    Just as funny as the first series and I hope they make more. Sadly, Charles Edwards voices Field Commander Uljabaan in this series, rather than Julian Rhind-Tutt. Edwards is good, but his inflections lack the gleeful mischief of Rhind-Tutt's delivery. Still the rest of the cast is brilliant and the writing sparkles.
