Rubbish!
7 March 2014 | by roysquiresSee all my reviews

I cannot believe this was allowed air. If technical advisor's were used they must have chosen to ignore everything suggested. I have seen better, more technically correct footage on "Fireman Sam" Seriously. I was hoping for much better than this.

Years ago I watched "London's Burning" A bit over the top but they used characters that were true to life. Fat ones, thin ones, father figures & an idiot. Just like the real thing. The story lines were often technically correct and contained plots to suit everyone.

If you lined us up in a shower, viewers would be physically sick!
