Breathtakingly brilliant, the best drama documentary of 2007.
13 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've just seen this on BBC Four, and I never realised how a program sixty minutes featuring three men travelling to the south pole would be so fantastically fascinating. It was amazing to watch, and beautifully written. It even made me cry, and that hardly ever happens!

Even though the budget was probably not very high, the special effects and creative shots were perfect. As acting goes, the talents of Mark Gatiss and Lee Ingleby never cease to amaze me, and was originally the reason I watched it. Every detail added up and it made me feel as if I was there with them. The realism described and acted is superb.

Before I watched it, I knew hardly anything of these characters, but I have learnt a lot as well as enjoying a good period drama. It made me stare and sit on the edge of my seat, it sent shivers down my spine and made me cringe (there are a few gruesome parts) because of the reality it portrayed so phenomenally.

If you get the chance, I thoroughly recommend you watch this brilliant piece of drama.
