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.

this series is inspired by the film of the same title, but starts out as flawed as the original film ends.
what else can i say. this series uses poor c.g. to amuse a somatose audience, and uses filler dialog in the same way.
whoever put this series together deserves a good old fashioned trip to the wood shed.
it has few plot points, obviously filled between with incongruous character reactions and stupid dialog which prompt time-filling conflicts, which stretches this tripe from a ninety minute show, into a British series length.
i was insulted by the watching, but unfortunately i kept viewing to see if it would get better or worse. the good news is it didn't get any worse. it played mediocre all the way through.
