Goofs

Reggie Soper is addressed as 'sergeant' throughout the series, but wears the rank of a staff sergeant (three stripes and a crown, as opposed to the three stripes only of a sergeant) and should therefore be addressed (given that he is is the Royal Army Medical Corps) as 'staff'. Though, as he is in charge of the quartermaster stores, he would usually be addressed as 'Q'. See more »

Emotionally involving..a must see!
5 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Crimson Field is an extremely well written drama about a WWI field hospital. It doesn't focus on the war & fighting, so don't look for that. This drama focuses on the nurses, doctors, patients and volunteers. Sarah Phelps has written episodes that leave you intrigued and emotionally involved in the characters; your heart will break for them and you will find yourself rooting for love to win in the end. The actresses and actors do an amazing job portraying their characters, a better cast couldn't have been chosen! My personal favorite episodes thus far are 3 & 4, directed by the talented Richard Clark. I am desperately hoping BBC announces that season 2 will be filmed.
