Storyline

Captain Frances Kelly (Driver) leads a research team below the Arctic ice aboard the cutting-edge submarine Orpheus in a quest to solve the world's burgeoning energy crisis and establish the fate of a doomed previous expedition, and expedition that took the wife of Kelly's chief engineer (Nesbitt). Enduring crushing pressure, violent volcanic gas eruptions, freezing temperatures and total darkness, the Orpheus arrives at the Lomonosov Ridge, an area of seabed within disputed territory under United Nations' administration and monitoring. Nobody ever goes there but there is something else in the freezing depths: something huge, a behemoth of epic proportions, menace and unknown purpose. As the Orpheus crew struggle for survival and attempt to unravel the mysteries of the deep, they uncover secrets more terrifying than they ever could have imagined. Written by Anonymous

What a stinker!
26 August 2010 | by (England) – See all my reviews

All those head-hunted bosses ("We'd lose them to other broadcasters if we didn't pay them vast salaries") entirely failed to spot that they were spending millions on piffle.

The story is completely arbitrary. Crises suddenly blow up because of gobbledygook, along the lines of "Oh no, the crinkly squigglegram is about to blow!", but this doesn't matter because, whew, they can also be solved by similar bits of nonsense. They never quite say "It's a long shot, but it might just work", but that's what they mean. As for the ridiculous business about the nuclear reactor and radiation, I won't say more to avoid spoilers.

Apart from the bogus crises, the story moves along like a glacier. Someone decided to spin it out over numerous unnecessary episodes. This has a terrible effect on the dialogue, which involves pointless silences and repetitions ("The squigglegram!" "What, the sqigglegram?" "No! It can't be the squigglegram!?" Pause. "I'm afraid so. It's the squigglegram.")

Greatly shortened, this might have made a moderately entertaining serial for CBBC. As it is...
