This is a television series which I saw around 5 years ago, probably shown on the Sky network in Europe. From the effects and so on I wouldn't say it was much older than that. I only caught snatches of it when I happened to be using the gym at the time it was on, because it was sometimes on one the screens there.

The only plot points I can remember is that it involved whales or whale-like creatures to some extent, and from time to time they would get together (possibly because they were annoyed) and cause huge waves to assault fishing towns and villages nearby.

  • Normally, searching with the snippets you mentioned turns up results in Google but I'm actually having difficulty searching what you want. I do remember a Star Trek Movie though: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. You question title made me search it but upon reading the question, you seem to be looking for something else.

  • Thanks, no I'd recognise Star Trek ... this was either a made for TV movie or miniseries.

It wasn't by any chance Surface, was it? It doesn't fit your description exactly, but it aired about 6 years ago, and dealt with weird creatures coming out of the ocean, so it's possible that that's what you're thinking of.
