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.
This wacky BBC sci-fi sitcom follows the expeditionary crew on HMS Camden Lock spaceship, ably steered by Commander Henderson, who explore the galaxy exporting all things British along the way. The series stars Nick Frost (Spaced,

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!
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!!!
I think people expecting it to be "like Red Dwarf" kind of shows the lack of imagination in expectation.
It is a very interesting take on sci-fi, more akin to older classics like Kinvig in the way it gently (and sometimes not so gently) ribs the genre for great comic effect. Like Dark Star (and of course Red Dwarf) this is sci-fi in a future where space travel has become as boring as shipping freight has to us today and meeting whole new races and whole new worlds is just more politics. The Captain Helix sub plot is masterful.
A lot of the humour is the kind of "OMG don't, oh no, please stop!" cringe humour you'd recognise from Miranda or similar shows although it is played more low key in some ways.
It has me hiding behind my hands and shrieking with laugher in equal measures.
Proof Britain can still turn out great comedy.
To those whom compare it to classics like Red Dwarf. Don't. They're completely different settings and unrelated in all but the fact that they're British Comedies and Sci-fi. This is essentially Star Trek, but monopolising on all of the silly British quirks we have, along with what they might become in the future.
Its cleverly put together, and uses its silliness and often cheesy set-ups in the best possible way. It has some seriously good episodes, and some okay episodes. But its engaging and funny from start to finish.
If you don't like the humour of Nick Frost, or Miranda, then I doubt this will interest you as much as it could. But I would at least give it a go. It isn't expensive, and its certainly worth it.
The CGI is certainly better than expected, and the sets are colourful and engaging. Overall the entire aesthetic is good and well done, the attention to detail is surprising in a Budget comedy show.
At the end of the day, this isn't for everyone, but for those it is for, it'll be a good and loved show.
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.

This had the potential to be quite funny, as the set up was chuckle-worthy- the crew attempts to set up inter-gallatic business links with Britain, but the series is devoid of all... Read morePublished 6 months ago by France fan
Truly awful. Such a fan of Nick Frost (although not such a fan of Miranda Hart) but found this series embarrassingly dull.Published 8 months ago by Joustforfun
Very dated but comedy on a lean budget that is not to be taken seriously. Good characters and silly plots make Hyperdrive easy to watch.Published 9 months ago by superscribe
