Ah. Yeah, I think it's pretty safe to assume that the ACs (being, as far as I can tell from what we got, genetically engineered but not actually cloned) were not intended at all to be the same thing as Juliet Aubrey's character being "cloned" (in parenthesis because we got no explanation for what was actually going on). Who knows, maybe the two would be revealed to be connected in some way in the second series, but I doubt it. One was man's scientific folly, the other some unknown element of Carpathia that we would probably have learned more about. In a very slow and roundabout way, if the first series was anything to go by. XD (I would note, tho, that I bet the planet's shenanigans with Aubrey was similar, if not the same, as the fact that Tate kept seeing his dead children. That's uncannily like the Solaris comparison I made earlier.)

BTW, I should point out that I actually don't think it was the writers' intent at all for Mitchell to have been "cloned" in the same way Aubrey's character was; I was hoping maybe that was the case, but I bet it wasn't. Still... would have been a REALLY DAMN GOOD IDEA. ;)

it would have been a good idea, but yes, i'm pretty sure that it wasn't their intention.

is there going to be a second series? i was under the impression that it wasn't the case. i think i saw a sort of/semi-official announcement somewhere about the fact that what we saw it's all that we're ever going to get. so, no answers, just theories.

Nope, no second series. The BBC announced no renewal pretty much five minutes after the finale aired. XD I was speculating on where the writers might have taken the plot had they been able to continue. (Provided they had an outlook planned out that far ahead; given what we got, I'm really not so sure! It was such a mish-mosh of potentially interesting ideas and concepts but they were so hell-bent on holding back ideas that there must have been SOMETHING on the back-burner they were planning to reveal later about the planet manifesting things like dead loved ones and alternate personalities and diamonds that no one really needs because there's no damn currency on this back-water burg of a planet. Oy.)
