Storyline

The drama follows a group of inspirational women in a rural Cheshire community where the shadow of World War II is casting a dark cloud over their lives. The isolated village couldn't feel further away from the impending bloodshed and battlefields and yet it is not immune from the effects of war. As the conflict takes hold, and separates the women from their husbands, fathers, sons and brothers, the women find themselves under increasing and extraordinary pressures in a rapidly fragmenting world.

Trivia

Despite the first and second series both performing well against rivals, in April 2016, ITV announced that Home Fires had been axed, a decision which caused uproar among fans. A petition and online campaign were soon launched to get the channel to reconsider, with the petition getting over 46320 signatures (updated 05/24/17). See more »

Entertaining and well produced series.
19 March 2018 | by brianhollierSee all my reviews

I am currently watching Home Fires tv series in Denmark. I remember the Second World War very clearly and the producers have tried to recreate small town life in the 40's with a degree of success. However, I cannot understand why they don't have the scripts checked and get advice about wartime pronunciation. For example, I have heard two actors say 'skedule' and not schedule. Nobody said the American pronunciation which became popular during the 'Friends' long running comedy series among younger viewers. And the young lad on the farm greeting a lady exclaiming 'Hi !' This was impossible! Greetings were more formal in those days. Even so, the series is so well acted and I love the story line. I really wish ITV would have continued the series as the writers created many strong characters.
