Episode 1.6
21 January 2020 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

When Harry Chase returns home with a Senegalese soldier in tow. His mother does not know what to think. Well she makes it clear that even savages are welcome in times like these. No wonder Harry flirts with taking an offer of a very dangerous assignment.

With Paris fallen to the Nazis, there is real savagery at show. Tom Bennett lying injured at a hospital in Paris needs to escape with the help of Dr O'Connor.

In Berlin Nancy Campbell sees her neighbours the Rosslers being taken away by the Nazis for questioning.

There is an undercurrent of tragedy, darkness and misery in this episode. Paris sees the brutishness of the Nazis, with Webster experiencing it first hand. Losing his home and lover. We also see characters criss crossing each other. Bennett and O'Connor meet.

Peter Bowker even manages to fit some humour here which was most welcome.
