How did this ever get made
10 January 2017 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

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? A job that's so boring they need to give you two weeks on then two weeks off, and pay you double what a land-based worker would get for the same skills? And somehow this was meant to make good drama.

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.)
