Synopsis

It is 2151 and the British have launched a fleet of spaceships to explore the galaxy in the only way the British can. That means with a stiff upper lip and regular tea breaks.

Their mission? To export all things British - overpriced supermarkets, housing estates and call centres - to all corners, and to protect Britian's interests in a changing galaxy.

At the forefront of this expeditionary force is the HMS Camden Lock, helmed by the irrepressible, if a little tetchy, Commander Henderson.

Ably assisted by a crew of misfits (the further they are from Earth the better, quite frankly), the Commander steers his ship through the stars, giving orders from his big swivelly chair.

Experience the highs, the lows, the anti-gravity failures, the annoying talking mops, and, of course, the wars with alien races.

The series was written by Kevin Cecil and Andy Riley, directed by John Henderson and produced by Alex Walsh-Taylor.
