Publisher's Summary

February 2012. Somewhere in the North Atlantic. In an increasingly uncertain defence environment, a deadly new arms race has begun. In an attempt to secure her boundaries, Britain has deployed the very latest sub-sea military technology. Beneath and beyond the front line, these are the adventures of the HMS Goliath. A 55,000 tonne M-Class nuclear stealth submarine, prowling 5,000 metres below the surface, manned by idiots.

A hilarious sitcom that Time Out called "a cracker" and the Sunday Telegraph described as "written with nutty aplomb", "Deep Trouble" is written by and stars Ben Willbond and Jim Field Smith.

This is the complete Series 1. In the first episode Captain Wade discovers that coffee and torpedoes don�t mix, Lieutenant Jack Trainor accidentally finds the exit door and Commander Alison Fairbanks gets involved in a food fight. In Episode 2, a team of US Navy SEALS descend on the ship, causing sinews to stiffen and hearts to flutter. In Episode 3 a visit by the admiral throws the boat into chaos, as well as ruining a Sea Harrier, a Russian S200 submarine and a perfectly good stationary cupboard. Finally in Episode 4, it�s homeward bound, as a stray astronaut and a rock band cause confusion in both Captain Wade�s head and Portsmouth...

    "If this is comedy then we are in deep trouble"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, it is simplistic comedy reliant upon repetition of annoying mannerisms. Story lines are weak and it is as though the performers realise this and can't remedy it .


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jim Field Smith and Ben Willbond again?

    Probably not


    Did Deep Trouble inspire you to do anything?

    Not to buy season 2, if there ever is one.

    "Wonderful"
    What did you like most about Deep Trouble?

    If you like Cabin Pressure, you'll enjoy Deep Trouble. Beautifully written, excellent characters, and LOL funny - I've listened to it over and over. If only there were a third series. Try it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The hapless Captain Wade "Heloooooooo"


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Excellent


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes - and listened to repeatedly

    "Thanks heavens I found this"
    Any additional comments?

    After listening to Cabin Pressure about five times, I had given up finding anything to take its place. But I found this, and while not quite as brilliant (who could ever match Douglas !) this is extremely funny and very satisfying to listen to.

    Story
    "Laughed once in one hour, 52 minutes"
    Would you try another book written by Jim Field Smith and Ben Willbond or narrated by the narrator?

    The narration is generally okay with the exception of the odd fake accent. Bonus points for the Russian in Episode 3. The writing is desperately unfunny, though.


    What could Jim Field Smith and Ben Willbond have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    There are some funny elements, but for me it would've needed a lot of rewriting. Maybe a term at the John Fennimore school of comedy?


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Listening to this eventually gave me a slight headache. Eventually I decided to listen to Cabin Pressure for the eighteenth time instead. I will probably return this one to Audible as I cannot imagine any circumstance in which I would want to listen to it again.


    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed. Perhaps other people will enjoy it more.

    "Deep Trouble - Good Program wish there were more."

    This is a good program that reminded me of HHGTG and Dads Army. It is good British Humor.
    Lacking the foul language of most modern humor it hits the funny bone with a silly and twisted look
    at the Royal Navy somewhat like McHales Navy of the U.S. It is fantasy and more about the types of people we know and meet everyday. If you like The IT Crowd, Red Dwarf or any of the other great BritComs, you will like this crew, almost always in DEEP TROUBLE. (-:

    Run Deep, Run Silent, Run Away...... (-:
