Fish-out-of-water sitcom starring Rob Brydon as a British astronomer sent to work in a remote Australian observatory
A Rob Brydon sitcom centred around an unworldly British astronomer and his experiences when he is sent to work at an Australian observatory. The astronomer, Dr. Paul Hamilton is forced to adapt to the local customs and climate and his new eccentric colleagues.
Our Review: The BBC expended a huge amount of money and effort on Supernova. Location filming took place in Sydney, Australia and a considerable amount of time was spent finding Australian cast and crew members. The series also featured extensive use of computer graphics which caused further expense.
