As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.
Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes according to plan.
A boy haunted by visions of a dark tower from a parallel reality teams up with the tower's disillusioned guardian to stop an evil warlock known as the Man in Black who plans to use the boy to destroy the tower and open the gates of Hell.
A wonderful series that featured lawyer Sam Lucas as he takes on a Perry Mason role of being detective. It's a shame it didn't last longer than it did. It had so many moments that were in the style of a classic crime series. The acting of Ross Kemp, who effectively transforms from his Eastenders' Grant Mitchell type, really is a highlight and he gives a charming, strong portrayal of Sam Lucas, standing up for truth and justice. I would say it is the most underrated British TV series in a long time and I hope the producers could bring it back for at least another series so more people could enjoy this superior drama.
