oil drama: 'crude', 'slick', 'important'

So what did they think? The Guardian's reviewer said that part one of Burn Up, BBC2's lively thriller about the oil industry and climate change, was still issue-led rather than story-led: in short, dramaganda. The Daily Telegraph's reviewer felt hit over the head with a green lecture. The Independent's reviewer said the plot 'contains nearly as many logical holes as it does good intentions'.

Everyone enjoyed the baddie, though. Mack, played by Bradley Whitford (left), was 'a born-again oil man,' wrote the Independent, 'sulphurously indifferent to global warming'.
