So the eight part sequel to Das Boot has just appeared on Sky Atlantic. It’s based on a later book by the author of Das Boot as well as that novel. Unlike the original the series is split between the submarine crew and Resistance shenanigans back in La Rochelle.

Considering how well the original film/miniseries is rightly regarded is this series doomed to pale in comparison? I’ve watched the first episode and it seems a lot more conventionally dramatic than the original as it sets up points of conflict between the crew.

Obviously I love the original, I've always said Das Boot Was Made For Watching.

I'm a bit nervous about the prospect of a sequel.

I thought it was alright. Good enough to make me want to watch the rest.
