WWII Drama - I LOVE IT!
2 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think WWII dramas are very romantic and I love this series! When it was first broadcast on Channel Four I couldn't wait to see it every week. Aside from the brilliant acting by everyone concerned, the story lines are excellent, enough to keep you involved, but not too complicated and not done in an "arty" way. Also the characters are interesting and events are wholly believable. You really do start caring about the characters involved.

I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it, also it gives younger people who weren't around during WWII a little taste of what it must have been like. The costumes and music are lovely too.

So, if you fancy a trip down memory lane and want an interesting and engaging story with likable characters, then you can't go wrong with this one! I get this video out on rainy days when I feel like a few hours of relaxation. Enjoy!
