Comments on the BBC series "Spyship" broadcast in 1983
17 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this series when it was broadcast in 1983 and it was excellent, if a little slow to get started.The theme tune "A Cold Wind", was sung by the incomparable June Tabor and was released as a single in the year of broadcast.A haunting tune written for the series, it suited the series perfectly.The story of a trawler which went down in open sea with no apparent explanation.It was first thought to have been sunk by the Russians, then a journalist, with the aid of a female friend, started to find out otherwise.As the series progressed, the two found their lives were in danger and were being thwarted in their efforts to get to the bottom of the tragedy.It has a quite stunning finale and is well worth a viewing.
