An adaptation of Flora Thompson's autobiographical novel "Lark Rise To Candleford", set in 19 century Oxfordshire, in which a young girl moves to the local market town to begin an apprenticeship as a postmistress.
Another famous name to have trained at Camp X was author Ian Fleming. There is one (unproven) theory that Fleming devised the name JAMES BOND from the ST JAMES-BOND UNITED CHURCH on Avenue Road, the street he lived on while in Toronto. (The congregation resulted from a merger of ST JAMES Square Presbyterian Church with BOND Street Congregational Church.) The whole story is well documented with many photographs in INSIDE CAMP X by Canadian author Lynn Philip Hodgson. See more »
I having grown up in Canada have been so used to poor acting and poorly filmed shows. I remember how happy we were finally getting cable so we didn't have to watch CBC. BUT as of late things have been picking up; e.g.. Flashpoint, Vikings and now X-Company. Good acting,entertaining, and 8 out of ten special effects. There is one special effect that was quite blatantly off but I appreciate that more than some crappy CGI effect. I know dh-t21 didn't like it but his review was less than informative and juvenile. (Maybe upset that it is mentioned the US doesn't enter the war until later :) Anyway the characters thus far are deep and well-portrayed. Lots of emotion in this first episode and some good British actors who add realism.
I hope that the season continues and all 8(?) episodes are broadcast and not replaced by something else.
