Trivia

Viewers have commented on the fact that the newly-commissioned Rupert is seen boarding a train in the uniform of a high-ranking naval officer. It was explained in "Radio Times" that this was a genuine error; Paul Rhys had accidentally put on the coat intended for the character of Michael Hadleigh. See more »

Goofs

In the credits for two of the episodes they misspell the actor who plays Christopher Castle's name, instead of "Nicholas Audsley" he's listed as "Nicholas Adsley". See more »

Just run the plot past me again...
19 May 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

...I'm afraid I missed that altogether.

The series has just finished its run on ABC-TV in Australia. I just can't recall what the point or plot of the series was. It drifted through a series of charming 1940s vignettes (far removed from the realities of the war) but never developed any action, any interest, or anything much at all. It sort of fizzled out in about 1942 with a pointless wedding. That bridal dress must have used a ton of coupons.

As pointed out in another review there were some glaring errors. (i) despite having their timber business bombed out by the Germans the Casulets managed to keep on with their luxurious middle class life with nary a blip. Even kept the servants on. Hardly did a lick of work at business, before or after the bombing - obviously one of those wonderful self-managing operations. (ii) Never was the tranquility of their splendiferous rural retreat disturbed by the passage of hundreds of low-flying aircraft overhead. Couldn't have been anywhere in the south. (iii) Always bright sunshine, even in the depths of winter. (iv) The airfield, with a single fighter that taxied back and forth, was a manicured bowling green. A rutted quagmire would have been realistic. The windows were always spotlessly clean and never fogged up.

On the other hand, perhaps this is what WWII was like for those with pots of money -- a bit of a doddle.

Summary: 4 out of 10. A tremendous disappointment. "Dad's Army" is more plausible than "The Cazalets".
