Smoke, The (Sky-1 2014, Jamie Bamber, Taron Egerton)

The Smoke

Drama series The Smoke followed the adventures of a crew of London firies. Team White Watch is led by Kev who as the series begins, faces a difficult return to duty following an accident that almost killed him.

Similar in content if not tone to ITV’s much loved 1980’s drama London’s Burning although it is probably aiming for a vibe closer to US show Chicago Fire.
