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.

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 first series was ok, not bad effects and well written, could be a little funnier though. There are a couple of great set pieces. The second series is a lot better. The effects sre a lot better and the writing has improved.
It was worth a watch!
It's much better than that; it's funny in its own right. It doesn't depend only on joking about science fiction cliches.
Miranda Heart is, as always, bumblingly excellent.
Sorry the show ended.
