At last
16 September 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Well, after a few years of waiting, finally another fire brigade drama on British television. And this one's set in the north, which makes a change from the usual London-centered action these days. Steel River Blues delivers everything one could expect from a modern UK drama: comedy, action, suspense, more action, and northern accents aplenty. It's nice to see ITV providing some quality material for a change; it would have been no surprise if they'd stuck cameras in a real fire station and marketed it as "Reality Drama".

The basic premise of the show is the same as any other Fire Service program: Dudes in fire station sit around until the bell goes off, then hop into their big red engines and charge off accompanied by appropriate music and sirens. To make it interesting, however, the above-mentioned dudes lead amusing discussions throughout, and it's basically just very well balanced.

If you're hungering after some firefighting action and Fireman Sam isn't fulfilling your needs, this show fills the gap nicely.
