The good news: Steve Baxter, who works in a video shop in Manchester, is the Messiah, the Second Coming of Christ. The bad news: Mankind has just 5 days to put together a third Testament, or Judgment Day will dawn. With the disarming naiveté of an agnostic, Russell T. Davies (QUEER AS FOLK, BOB & ROSE) poses an existential human question: What happens when religious doctrine »becomes flesh« in an irrefutable form? This structure provides the basis for Adrian Shergold’s intelligent, challenging and suspenseful thriller which manages to avoid the usual mystery clichés. Thought provoking series television; a mini-miracle.
