Trivia

They had the 'hero' travel to Poland to be 'dropped behind the lines'. The plane they showed had 3 engines, but the RAF didn't have a plane in the 1940 like that. The only aircraft that fits from that era that may have been in the RAF is a Ford Trimotor built in the early 1930s, but that had a range of about 500 miles so a trip to Poland and back would be impossible.

Emotionally charged, but great news at the end.

Ok so you need to believe that anything can happen, no matter how unlikely the possibility, there are some events that happen, which will have you scratching your head. If you can just accept that you're watching a TV show, then you can enjoy this. It's attempting to show that q new world was coming, that the old mind sets and class system were done, only it never really was the case for many.

Plenty of scenes tug at the heart strings, Jan's big moment for one, Harry's big moment, for me though this was stolen by two terrific performances in particular, Helen Hunt, she showed what a class act she really is, brilliant, and the other, arguably the star of the show,L Manville. Manville's acting to my me is BAFTA worthy, her expressions, reactions and whole demeanour have been breathtaking throughout. I had forgotten just how good she is. Credit also to the young lad playing Jan, he's was great.

I was delighted to see another series planned, it performed consistently, it's been a very thought provoking watch. 8/10
