Episode 3 (BBC’s 5-part drama) THE DEEP

In Ghosts of the Deep, the Orpheus crew examines remains of the Hermes’ submersible.

BBC One's thriller series The Deep, which stars Minnie Driver and James Nesbitt, continued its ratings dive last night as 1 million viewers failed to return. The Deep opened two weeks ago with 5.3 million viewers but dropped to 4.8 million for last week's second instalment. The third episode of the Submarine based drama saw ratings plunge even further down with 3.7 million viewers - according to overnight ratings.

Despite M.E.'s very hopeful review of Episode 2, part 3 of the mini-series, starring James Nesbitt and Minnie Driver, averaged 3.77m (16.4%) for BBC One in the 9pm hour, down 740k week-on-week and 1.2m on its debut broadcast.
M.E.'s Episode 2 review...

Actually previews of The Deep promise a very entertaining and dramatic series, despite the inevitable barbs any theatrical performance of this nature attracts from veteran submariners. The special effects and hull views of Orpheus are also very impressive. No wonder the British have excelled at camouflage.

Submarines are always silent and strange.
