Mainly notable nowadays for containing a couple of actors that later became regulars on Game Of Thrones (Liam Cunningham and James Cosmo), this series was an entirely-missable 'drama' about the lives of off-shore oil workers. Not that you can't sometimes make a good drama about an otherwise dull profession (e.g., "Clocking Off"), but surely that premise must have set alarm bells ringing in the BBC's ear?

For some reason, it popped into my head today, and I thought I'd look it up. I'm entirely unsurprised I'm the only person that's bothered to review it. IIRC, it lasted for 1 series only, and perhaps not even the whole of that series was aired (I can't remember.)
