Storyline

Home Fires took viewers into the home of the Lowe family - a Toronto doctor, his wife and two teenage children - as they experienced the World War II from the home front. Gerard Parkes starred as Dr. Albert Lowe, the family patriarch and a general practitioner in a working-class, ethnic district of Toronto. Kim Yaroshevskaya played Hannah Lowe, the doctor's Polish-Jewish wife, who feared for the safety of her relatives in the old country. Wendy Crewson, as the Lowes' daughter Terry, made the difficult transition from adolescence to independent womanhood as the series progressed. Peter Spence played Sydney, the Lowes' teenage son.
