Storyline

RAF Auchnacluchnie is a nearly abandoned cold-war early-warning radar station situated in the highlands of Scotland overlooking a small village. The two remaining staff Wing-Commander Campbell-Stokes ('Roger Blake') and Airman Tench (Felix Bell) don't seem to realise that the cold war is over and continue to ward off the threat of nuclear attack. All continues peacefully until HQ decide to send Flight Lieutenant Simon Harrison ('Chris Lang') to assess the effectiveness of the station. Written by Mark Smith <smith@osi.co.uk>

Gentle, sometimes predictable, but too brief a series
6 August 2001 | by (San Jose, California) – See all my reviews

Scotish humor sometimes translates well to North American (Well... U.S.) tastes and sometimes not. This series of only 6 programes is quite wonderful and amusing and makes that tranlation very well. The premise - a lone military listening post high on a cliff overlooking a small coastal village in far North Scotland manned by an out-of-touch commander, a simple-minded enlisted man and a junior officer with more brains than luck - might seem limited. But the writers managed to come up with a combination of story lines that were individual while still growing on each previous one.

Like many programs from the British TV system, it probably could have used an initial run of 10-12 shows in order to get its foot in the door. Six is just not enough for many shows (and sometimes about 5.9 shows too many for others). And the pity is that these 1-series wonders rarely get saved to video and made for sale.
