My Resistance was low
28 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This series was recently undeservedly brought back from obscurity by the Yesterday Satellite Channel in the UK. It is totally laughable and most of the actors must have auditioned to see how much they could overact. It was so bad that I daren't miss an episode of this hogwash. Several of the cast set out to show how not to act, but the Oscar winner was probably Brian Pringle playing a priest working for the French underground who would have been better employed by London Underground. He was simply appalling and it was a relief when he was shot after a couple of episodes. He was joined by so many of the cast in their over the top clichéd portrayals of German officers, Frenchmen and upper class English women. Trevor Peacock invented the new method of acting by delivering as much of his dialogue through clenched teeth, but at least he looked realistic whereas Jane Snowden had a fresh hairdo and makeup in every scene and also a steady supply of new skirts and blouses. The production spoilt itself in that they used authentic German armour and aircraft but let itself down as in the case of the women being shown as glamour pusses instead of tough secret agents. Jane Asher found her true calling when she turned to cake making as she really took the cake as the boss of the British base of the SOE operations. Kate Buffery was often seen smoking in the series, but I venture to say that she never smoked at all in 'real life.' I saw the DVD on sale in HMV for the princely sum of £55 for the complete series which could earn many of the 'actors' some royalties, but personally I'd put most of them plus the director in front of a firing squad! Another series along similar lines was 'Secret Army' which was remorselessly spoofed and spoilt by 'allo, allo', but 'Wish Me Luck' didn't need to be spoofed as it became a comedy in it's own right. The French locations couldn't save this series which was spoilt by poor acting, intrusive music and abysmal scriptwriting. Why did I watch it? My Resistance was low!
