Brilliant astronomer and university lecturer Dr. Paul Hamilton is given the opportunity to leave London - along with his depressing life, boring job and irritating girlfriend - when he is offered a job and new life at the Royal Australian Observatory, a remote settlement in the Australian outback. In addition to having to adjust to the local climate, wildlife and culture, he finds he also has to cope with the eccentricities of his new colleagues. Written by
After the first episode of this disappointing program, I think it's fair to assume that it won't get any better. It was predictable, boring, and a clear waste of the wonderful Rob Brydon's comedic talents. Another big problem with the show is that out of all of the 6 main characters, only 1 is given comedy lines, or put in comedy situation - Rob Brydon. Obviously he is the main character, and therefore should be seen the most, but it would work so much better if all of the oddballs that he works with were funny too. I'm angered that the BBC has once again wasted my licence fee money on a rubbish TV show. PUT SOME BLOODY EFFORT IN TO IT NEXT TIME!
