5.0 out of 5 stars Spy ship
A great story, which many will argue bears more than a passing resemblance to fact. The Gaul was a Hull trawler, described by some as "ahead of it's time". Nevertheless it was lost, in what many locals considered to be suspicious circumstances, taking most of it's crew with it. Only in recent years has the wreck been found and still mystery surrounds the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, but problematic DVD
A terrific series that has finally receive a long-awaited DVD release.

However, please be aware that the DVD seems to be afflicted with a similar problem that affected the recent release of Softly Softly in that the studio VT sequences for some episodes appear to have been 'filmised' which leaves such scenes with a smeary, unsharp finish.

Also, when...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story stands up well to test of time, 23 May 2014
This review is from: Spyship [DVD] (DVD)
It's a really good Cold War story which brings back the sense of powerlessness and paranoia of the era. The production values are a little creaky, but don't detract from a good well-paced story which maintains the sense of tension very effectively.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hull 0-London 4, 21 May 2014

I worked in Hull a few years ago & after watching this decided that the city has not changed much at all in thirty years.
Good drama & a great performance as usual by Tom Wilkinson. Also an early sighting of Jimmy Nail pre "Auf Wiedersehen Pet".

4.0 out of 5 stars Gritty, interesting., 10 April 2014

Can't remember this being on at the time, but if you like gritty late 70's drama then its great. Acting is good, plot is reasonably intriguing, and looks well-researched. Have wondered for a while how our Cold War perceptions would be altered if the Barents Sea, Arctic Ocean etc were more central on our maps.

Haven't finished watching it yet.

I dropped a star because the folksong theme blares out at the beginning of each episode :-| No biggie.

This book was so interesting from the first page to the last. It also leaves a lot of questions unanswered.

"The past is a foreign country, we do things differently now" But do we. Who is it our Intelligence services protect? Good actors and a great script which has survived the test of time.

The story was good although the beginning was very slow. The acting was typical of the period and therefore dated.

However, what do we care if its good viewing.
