Our take

From the producers of Line of Duty and Bodyguard, this tense and claustrophobic thriller set in Scotland in a nuclear submarine shows all the British know-how when it comes to series. Featuring Suranne Jones (Docteur Foster, Gentleman Jack) and Rose Leslie, discovered in Downton Abbey and Games of Thrones.
