A big, daft audience sitcom set on board a ship which is stuck in the ice at the Antarctic.

It's 1917, and a ship of fools has been wedged in the ice flow for nearly a year. Several captains have come and gone and now the task of getting the men home, or at least, keeping them in good spirits until the thaw comes, has fallen to Rory Sheridan.

Sheridan is by his own admission, a man who knows nothing about shipping, but luckily by his side he had his trusted friend, and man of great shipping knowledge, Knopfler.

In this pilot episode, the men's morale takes a downward spiral when the lid of a biscuit tin goes missing. It turns out the lid depicted a real and rather raunchy looking Edwardian lady and it was this that was keeping the men busy and in good spirits. However, without the lid, the brutish bully Chef sees an opportunity to stoke a mutiny and become captain of the ship herself. The lid must be found because whoever had the lid controls The Horn. And whoever controls The Horn, controls the men.
