Great show!
5 May 2014 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

I am really loving this series, and hoping it not only is renewed for a second season but is picked up in the US. The portrayals of each character are great, and we see them as they are revealed layer by layer. Also like that they are not black-and-white, cardboard people, but layered and ones we grow to care about and respect. The sets and action are true to the time period, well devised and shown. Crossing my fingers to see more... I find Richard Rankin's portrayal especially good. He is a doctor who is more progressive that many of his "superiors" but also from a lower social class than most, so he fights a double battle. The support he receives from the Lt. Col. Roland Brett (head doctor played by Kevin Doyle) and Brett's own struggle with what's good for the patient vs. the Army wanting to put men back out in the field is well-portrayed. I'm liking very much the lives of the nurses and VAD's. Oona Chaplin is Kitty, a VAD with a secret and spectacularly shows the emotions boiling under her very controlled surface. The other nurses and VAD's all have their own secrets and these are slowly being revealed. All in all, excellent series. Hoping to hear the BBC has renewed it soon.
