Bump, starts in an hour.
Missed the first 15 minutes, anyone able to catch me up?
This is muck!
really enjoyed that!
built really nicely throughout the hour, very excited for N2!
Yes I enjoyed it as well. Couple of interesting cliff hangers for tomorrow night.
Basics (I've no idea how to do spoiler text on new site)...
A small trawlers nets are entangled in a submarine and it's brought to the bottom with its crew. While the trawler is being sunk an officer (Burke) on the sub Vigil can hear on sonar the trawlers nets being entangled with a sub and it sinking. He wants Vigi to surface to see if there's any survivors from the trawler, Burke has either experience or knew of a similar sinking previously. The Captain of Vigil doesn't want to surface as he knows this would expose Vigil's position, it's only really later in the episode that the reason for not surfacing is that it's an enemy sub that would have been entangled in the nets and this would then expose Vigil's position. Burke is dismissed from duty and is found dead later which then triggers an investigation in to his death which is why detective Amy Silva is transported to the sub to investigate the circumstances around it.
Suranne Jones is in bloomin' everything - she's good but she's no Maxine Peake or Sarah Lancashire.
LOVE Patterson Joseph and Stephen Dillane. They're two actors who deserve more recognition imo.
I've enjoyed it so far. Very good at capturing the claustrophobic atmosphere on the submarine. Interesting to see Shaun Evans play a character who is 'helping' the police but really keeping watch to make sure DCI Silva doesn't find out too much. The shoe is normally on the other foot when he's playing Morse.
I thought it was super.
Really tense, locked-box mystery.
Side point: was Rose Leslie pregnant when they filmed? Giant coats that don't fit her...

First episode quite good, I heard nothing about this series until I saw it mentioned here 😉
Rose Leslie has come a long, long way since downton Abbey
Why do I have a feeling Adrian Dunbar is going to pop up some time 🤔
Really strong episode one I thought.
One criticism I did find some little bits of CGI a bit dodgy though....
It's been a while since I've been on a nuclear sub 🙄 but this one doesn't have a feel or look of one 😏
Ha ha I was thinking more of the boat at the start....and the scenes of the sub surfacing etc...but alright lol
A bit of a moby dick look to it 🤣
Not bad, I'm liking this actually, just hope James Nesbitt doesn't make a cameo 😁
It’s no Das Boot. That series was so realistic, the sub in this is like a hotel. I think she bumped her head once and had a tiny bunk and that was the height of her discomfort.
It is a little strange a better effort not made re the interior of a sub, it does have a look of a hotel to it (Travel lodge) 😂
@cozar yep this ain't Das Boot for sure.
I enjoyed Ep1, but Ep2 has left me a bit middle of the road now. I'll stick with it for now - we'll see.
Bits I'm not sure about:
Just started. Martin Compston pissing off his superiors in the opening scenes of the very first episode - where have I seen that before...? 🤔
This looks good. The submarine is a great setting for drama. Red October, Crimson Tide and Das Boot are all dudes, which is cool - no issue with it, but as a woman I'm interested to see a submarine drama with female involvement.
Amy being lowered down from the helicopter like Jack Ryan - fecking great. Love this.
Have you missed the Sub Doctor who is female, numerous crew members, Main characters, including the lieutenant commander at the base 🤔 seems like a good female representation all round IMO.
But that was what I meant.
My sincere apologies, I've misread your post, I thought you meant more female characters /involvement etc. I stand humbly chastised 😔 agree also re Martin Compston 😏
No prob! 😊
Phew, thought I was in trouble 😊
