- Director: Jeffrey Walker
- Writer: Jimmy McGovern
- Producer: Iain Canning
McGovern is a writer for a specific taste...he manages to numb tastebuds with surprising consistency.
As for historical accuracy...obviously, he did absolutely no research.
Add to the mix, shabby production values, daft direction and a mad editor...what do you get? A BBC bomb.
Not even with Russell Tovey can this be regarded as palatable.
After 7 episodes...scrapped and forgotten.
British convicts have been sent to Australia as punishment for their crimes. As they try to live their new lives, they have to live with the new rules. The soldiers also have to adjust.
