[after exiting the 'Killing House' training exercise]
SSgt. Henry 'Henno' Garvie:
Not only did we over do the explosives, we over did the time as well. We should have been in and out in fifteen seconds, eighteen max... Alright who shot the T.V.?
Sgt. Pete Twamley:
I did. It was Richard Whiteley. I felt he posed a risk to life so I used necessary force.

It's about a young guy, Jamie Dow who started out as a thief stealing cars from the age of 12 to 18. When sentenced, the judge was told that he'd just been accepted for the Royal Legistics Corps.
From there he worked hard and made it into the SAS. When asked why he did it he says that he 'wanted to see if I could make it'.
The show is basically about the SAS and the situations they find themselves in.
Not for the faint hearted but a very good show. Ross Kemp plays the ultimate Sergeant, the typical hard guy needed to be there. He's still very fair but doesn't let his feelings get in the way of things. Underneath he's a real pussycat, and looks after his command with his life.
The supporting cast is very well picked and compliments the show perfectly.
Last comment.. it's lovely to see an almost unknown actor Jamie Draven being given the chance to shine, and he takes every opportunity. One of the films you will have seen in is 'Billy Elliot' as Billy's brother.
I hope they do more than the 6 episodes as I would love to see more of Jamie and the guys.
