Set during the occupation of the Channel Islands during World War II. The story shows how Island life changed overnight after a German invasion. Islanders were restricted to walking and cycling, town names were changed to German names, clocks were set to continental time, and no society could meet without the permission of German High Command. The focus is on three families, the Dorrs, the Jonases and the Mahys, as they struggle on with day to day life under the restrictive new system. Written by
Does Not Reflect Well on the People of the Islands
The show is dark and depressing throughout, with no bright points or themes the viewer could rally around. The series makes the people of the Channel Islands look cowardly and compromising at best. Many of the island women are shown as trollops who easily give themselves to the Germans. The few characters with any virtue are killed in the first two episodes, leaving the remaining, less than admirable characters to finish the series. There is one exception in the town constable, who openly disdains his captors and works to undermine them. His wife too remains virtuous. However, their characters are overshadowed by the loose and easily manipulated young women who provide nothing for the viewer to warm up to.
Just overall an unedifying series full of lechery.
