The camp pictured in this show actually did exist in Ontario. The camp trained many people who were vital to the war effort. Roald Dahl, who wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and many other books trained here for a time. See more »
Is this historically accurate? No, not at all. Is it entertaining? Very much so.
This is all character development. Story. I really cant wait for the next series now that series 2 has been given the green light.
In this day and age we have Agents of Shield, Captain America et al. All of which are complete fantasies. This is a hi-bred. It is demonstrably a more realistic rendition of Marvels Agent Carter, same same but with a thin veneer of accuracy. More compelling than Carter, simply because it is more closely aligned with the truth.
Having said that, it is a very well characterised fantasy rendition of reality where the emphasis is on characterisation.
In any event, very compelling. Looking forward to the next rendition.
