To assess the TV show properly we need some GRU operational procedure experts on this thread.
Not watched it, and have no intention of watching it either ........... or TV in general, but that's another subject.
It wouldn't surprise me in the SLIGHTEST that there are errors with badges and insignia and epaulettes.
Watched Ghost Boat as suggested by an ex-RN mate, and it was excellent except for the branch badges being wrong for the time, and the insignia and epaulettes.
David Jason was great in it.
The Youtube movie is fine, but the aspect ratio is wrong but live-with-able.
So what about the badges etc?
Unless you are in the RN or have been in the RN, you wouldn't even notice.
As for "claustrophobic", modern submarines are only claustrophobic because they have no windows.
Try being on a frigate (much smaller than a modern submarine) and being up in the Arctic in the winter. Zero daylight to speak of, and horrendous weather so you can't see it even if there was any daylight!
