From England to Egypt, accompanied by his elegant and trustworthy sidekicks, the intelligent yet eccentrically-refined Belgian detective Hercule Poirot pits his wits against a collection of first class deceptions.
P.O.W. centres around the escape attempts of several British officers in a Prisoner of War camp in Germany. The lead, Jim Caddon, is played by James D'Arcy (Master and Commander, Nicholas Nickleby) and the series starts off with his capture and subsequent transport to the camp. At first untrusted by the other officers, Jim eventually becomes good friends with a number of men and is brought into the folds of the escape committee.
Each episode is very neatly wrapped up at the end, with nothing being left unanswered. This helps if you happen to miss an episode, however it can be frustrating because when the episode finishes the men are usually right back where they were at the beginning of the episode.
Several episodes are based around fairly violent and emotional topics such as rape, murder and a man is even lit on fire(!), so this is definitely not one for the under 15s.
Fine acting and a brilliant script keep this series action-packed, and while its historical accuracy can be questioned, all in all it's a jolly good ride.
If you liked POW I recommend The Great Escape.
