Dead and buried on arrival, 2 December 2013
Author: Prismark10 from United Kingdom

One day this programme might be unearthed as a classic, although I would not hold my breath. I think the BBC has buried this deep in the North Sea.

This series had a great pedigree. From the makers of Life on Mars. It has Adrian Lester, the star of Hustle. It took a pitch and phrasings from the Channel 4 archaeological show, Time Team. It was going to add lashings of Indiana Jones intrigue and adventure with a battle of wits and treasure with rival, better funded archaeologist. Lester described the show as CSI meets Indiana Jones.

What seemed like a great pitch for a TV adventure show came on screen as a damp squib. Julie Graham who played Dr Magwilde had all the charisma of a corpse. Hugh Bonneville, playing Professor 'Dolly' Parton a character who likes a drink, probably wished he just stayed in the pub. Adrian Lester probably just wished he was back in Hustle.

The first episode which dealt with a controversial storyline of modern day Knight Templars unleashing their own race war highlighted some of the absurdities of this show. Something did not gel and what was supposed to be hip and exciting became turgid, dull, dreadful with actors speaking horrible lines.
