This review is from: Hyperdrive - Series 1 & 2 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
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!
