  • Four stories in one, the comic element with the washing, the semi-serious girl guides, the son-father i'm puttung you in charge and the deadly serious gun toting DJ. I was dissapointed because it fell short of what the Royal normally oproduces.moreless

    1.5
    A bit more research about 'pirate' radio and maybe asking to film the studio scences on board the Ross Revenge would have added more realism to the story which was slightly based on two real events on the 'real' offshore commercial stations in the sixties.



    What I don't understand is why there was only one disc jockey and whatever possessed the programme makers to make him look and sound like that awful degenerate talentless moron Russell Brand.



    This episode was a real let-down and should be confined to the depths along with Swinging Radio Neptune. The real pirates were not like this.moreless
  • Best episode of the eighth series so far.

    9.5
    This episode of The Royal was nowhere near as bad as the previous reviewer says it was (very harsh mark out of 10 they've given). Out of the episode shown in this run (six episodes so far, but episodes 4-9 of this series) this has been my favourite so far.



    Loved some of the wide camera shots of the ship, more stories than usual in an episode of The Royal, the humour, and the music (as good as before).



    It'll be sad when all of the remaining episodes have been shown. It was getting low ratings than it was getting when it first started, but it didn't deserve to be axed.moreless
