I haven't seen this one but I've seen The Tomorrow People another show for British teens.The BBC started this with Doctor Who in 1963 - it's the longest running show in TV history. The BBC also did The Tomorrow People as mentioned, Blake's 7, Red Dwarf and a host of other popular TV shows about Aliens throughout the 60's 70 and 80. ie The Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy and Torchwood of present day.
This has led me to speculate that the Queen is in fact a queen but of Alien Origin. She is preparing the minds of her subjects for the day when she will announce that yes, in fact, they will all be eaten to satisfy the hunger of her many children. Many of them don't even bother to hide their alien features... as in the case with dear Charles.
On hearing this news the Brits will simply say, "Oh what a cock up, Now there's no more time for tea and conkers.and I did want to catch the next Cricket match. Bugger it all. Right. We had better be getting over to the palace to do our duty" and off they go in typical British fashion. They do hope they will be tasty.

Seriously, I sometimes wish I had a better ear for British English (I'm American). Usually on these TV shows I can't make out a word they're saying. I have to turn off all distractions, put my headphones on, and still try to read their lips. Don't get me wrong: I love Brits, and I like many British TV shows. Just can't make out what the hell they're saying. I'll flag this for when I have some leisure time....
