Storyline

This action adventure series follows the exploits of Sergeant Henno Garvie and his colleagues who make up Red Troop, a crack SAS team. Stopping the release of a lethal anthrax mutation, infiltrating an anti-capitalist group set on assassination and a life-or-death bank siege are among the missions facing the troopers as they put their lives on the line at the sharp end of Britain's most elite fighting force. Henno's reputation is at stake when an operation goes wrong in the complex political jigsaw of Northern Ireland. There is a tragedy on a combat survival weekend and the team find their skills, stamina and close-knit bond pushed to the limit when they are sent to hunt out a suspected war criminal in Bosnia.

Quotes

[after exiting the 'Killing House' training exercise]
SSgt. Henry 'Henno' Garvie: Not only did we over do the explosives, we over did the time as well. We should have been in and out in fifteen seconds, eighteen max... Alright who shot the T.V.?
Sgt. Pete Twamley: I did. It was Richard Whiteley. I felt he posed a risk to life so I used necessary force.
SSgt. Henry 'Henno' Garvie: Fair enough.

Wow!
11 October 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Like the summary says.. WOW!

It's about a young guy, Jamie Dow who started out as a thief stealing cars from the age of 12 to 18. When sentenced, the judge was told that he'd just been accepted for the Royal Legistics Corps.

From there he worked hard and made it into the SAS. When asked why he did it he says that he 'wanted to see if I could make it'.

The show is basically about the SAS and the situations they find themselves in.

Not for the faint hearted but a very good show. Ross Kemp plays the ultimate Sergeant, the typical hard guy needed to be there. He's still very fair but doesn't let his feelings get in the way of things. Underneath he's a real pussycat, and looks after his command with his life.

The supporting cast is very well picked and compliments the show perfectly.

Last comment.. it's lovely to see an almost unknown actor Jamie Draven being given the chance to shine, and he takes every opportunity. One of the films you will have seen in is 'Billy Elliot' as Billy's brother.

I hope they do more than the 6 episodes as I would love to see more of Jamie and the guys.
