HMS 'Scorpion' is supposed to be a British submarine, presumably (given her name) an S-Class. However, she doesn't resemble any Royal Navy submarine of the Second World War, looking far more like a late-war German Type VIIC U-boat. The only significant concession is that exterior periscopes have been altered to give it a more British look, but they are closer to what was on a T-Class submarine than on the S-Class. See more »
Good entertainment and different role for David Jason
A story like this will not appeal to everyone but I thought it was very original and well put together overall. A good change from the usual period dramas that come from British productions. There were some bits that could have been better with regards to acting and script but it was still entertaining. Some story points are a bit too subtle and easy to miss so might need a second viewing to fully appreciate how it all fits together. The ending was quite bold and strong which I didn't expect. The visual effects were good for a relatively low budget production and there was quite a lot of computer graphics that looked as good as from a feature film.
