Product Description

Series 1 of Hyperdrive rockets off in 2151 and the British have launched a fleet of spaceships to explore the galaxy in the only way the British can. That means with a stiff upper lip and regular tea breaks. Their mission? To export all things British - overpriced supermarkets, housing estates and call centres - to all corners, and to protect Britain's interests in a changing galaxy. At the forefront of this expeditionary force is the HMS Camden Lock, helmed by the irrepressible, if a little tetchy, Commander Henderson. Ably assisted by a crew of misfits (the further they are from Earth the better, quite frankly), the Commander steers his ship through the stars, giving orders from his big swivelly chair.

The team face many challenges throughout series 2, including becoming members of the best space-o-batics team, The Green Javelins, and rescuing an admiral's daughter to take her to university. They are, as ever, always up for the odd battle with hostile alien attackers; be they Queppu warriors, shiny red robots, or the terrifying Engulfers, they'll give it their best shot. Experience the highs, the lows, the anti-gravity failures, the annoying talking mops, and, of course, the wars with alien races. Lots of wars...

Includes bonus disc of special features.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit of silly 23 April 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well, the dvd arrived quickly well packaged so off we went. This is a daft comedy with two good leads in Nick Frost and Miranda Hart. We thoroughly enjoyed watching it and although it didn't really fulfill the promise of Nick and Miranda it was daftly funny, far better than much of the rubbish currently being called comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius overlooked!! 27 May 2009
Format:DVD
I missed this series when it aired, and have only just discovered it. Why are there only two series??? It is very funny and has something for everyone who likes good British comedy. There isnt a single weak episode or character, and I have to admit a crush on Jeffers..
The episode with 'False York' is one to watch over and over again, as Kevin Eldon's Mister York creates a clone with hilarious random comments such as 'Im going pot holing now..'

Watch and be very entertained. And lets try and get at least another series out of the BBC!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic! 9 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this a while ago and forgot to write a review until now, but in that time I have watched it several times over.

because the internet in my house does not work in my room I get through A LOT of DVDs, I need something I can watch a few times without it getting to boring (I'm not talking about back to back here). I have found this series more than satisfactory! I remember watching this the fist time round on the telly and wishing it had carried on for longer. it really is one of those underrated BBC things that just didn't get put out on the right channel or at the right time!

the only thing I would say other than singing it's praises is to tell people to take into account WHEN it was made, this was pre miranda and miranda heart was not as famous, the cast may take slightly different roles from what you are expecting, but stick with it, it's worth it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Delicious 16 Feb 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hyperdrive is a deliciously innovative, affectionate comic take on space operas, not unlike the film Galaxy Quest. Set on board HMS Camden Lock, a British spaceship, in 2151 the comic genius crew tackle duty and disaster with equal success, albeit only in their own eyes. But everyone seems to know their place and where they'd rather be. So the Commander (Nick Frost) gets the swivelly chair, but only so no one else gets it. First Officer York (Kevin Eldon) gets to stride about with dangerous weapons, but would prefer to obliterate people with it, and brilliant Diplomatic Officer Teal (Miranda Hart) gets to accompany the almost bright Commander on missions - but yearns to be so much more to him. As a result Miranda Hart puts in some of the funniest moments in the whole thing - despite the comic strength of the cast as a whole. Hyperdrive owes as much to The Thin Blue Line and The Office as to Star Trek. One minute you're laughing, the next you're recoiling in horror at the strange habits of alien diplomats. And you can't say that about many things!

5.0 out of 5 stars No it's not Red Dwarf 16 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Why try to compare Hyperdrive to Red Dwarf? I don't think it was trying to be the same show at all. I love both. Hyperdrive has a quieter sort of humour but it really grows on you. It has a weird kind of optimism and sweetness mixed in with the silliness. I enjoy the characters, in particular, very much. I seem to enjoy it even more each time I watch it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good fun and doesn't take itself too seriously 22 Aug 2007
By Niel
Format:DVD
Hyperdrive is silly, funny and clever. The DVD is an excellent package full of commentaries on every episode, with some very insightful background information. The making of documentaries are well put together too. The video diary stuff is a bit light but it always remains entertaining.
The actual episodes vary between action, character stuff and a bit of good old slapstick. By the end of series two you will know the characters well and be rooting for a third series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hyperdrivel 4 April 2012
Format:DVD
From the other reviews it seems as though you either love this series or hate it. I really, really wanted to like it but just couldn't. It has a strangely flat feel to it, as though no-one involved in the production really believed in what they were doing. The scripts are flat and the humour clumsy. There are some good ideas but no follow-through. A successor to Red Dwarf it ain't.

This was a truly inspired comedy that had the whole family laughing. The idea of the British in space comes accross brilliantly and the cast are second to none. My kids particilary liked the aliens that got a kick out of licking the crew's faces whilst saying "This is not sexual". Very funny and good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hyperdrive
No cheap Blakes 7 effects on this series and good acting by the main characters, but it loses a bit in content, it was good but not great, though Nick Frost was on his game.
