Primeval - wtf?

OK, so I see that 'Primeval' tonight would be about a submarine blah blah etc. Sat down and....... WTF?? Had the props/wardrobe departments EVER seen a submarine movie, let alone tried to construct one? The (4 ring, so must have been a bomber!) skipper had a MN cap badge with a red cross on it. The JRs were all 'officers' etc

Sadly, I only watched until the 'team' went onboard where the planesman did nothing but letch at the totty, so at least they got THAT bit right! :toothy8:
I note this bit of choice dialogue:

"You know your submarines?".

"I was in the Royal Marines; spent a bit of time underwater".

"You were Army".

"The Navy would have been my first choice".
Well I watched the first bit, " give me full tilt on the planes" "all ahead one third" :shock:

Methinks the script writers have been watching too many septic movies although they at least got the names of two classes of boats correct :iconbiggrin:

edited to add "and no engineers onboard". I love to have seen the dabbers back aft preparing for sea and operating the donks!

Flood and vent the torpedo room???? Mini submarine deploys from bottom of boat??? Ability to find the moved fuse panel???? And where was the XO??? Lol
That was ace.

A gay Chief/Midshipman/Officer(?), two scruffy civil servants and a wipeable bint prove that the perisher course is a piece of piss after all.

You cheeky submariner chaps kept the Thunderbird 4 type thing quiet as well didn't you? Well your secret's out now - ner ner.
