Trivia

A more correct version of the plot should have focused on the number of German aeronautical engineers that came to work in the U.K., either willingly or taken using T-Force as shown in this series, and included engineers such as Dietrich Küchemann, Johanna Weber and Hans Multhopp. Multhopp did in fact design a supersonic jet aircraft for the British at the RAE - however, as soon as it reached the prototype stage, Multhopp was taken of his own project, as he was classed as an 'enemy alien' working in Britain.

Is it me or is it just awful.
8 December 2016 | by crapdocSee all my reviews

The worst most wooden acting since the Woodentops. What on earth is that terrible accent the leading man affecting. Someone has already likened it to Harry and Paul do the 1940s from the Fast Show ,which would have more credibility. Every time he opens his mouth I'm so irritated by his accent I can't concentrate on where the story is going. Then there's the creepy "Allo allo stereotypical German " . The younger brother "with problems". It's an endless catalogue of characters who telegraph their stories with in 5 minutes of opening their mouths. Mmmmm blackshirts and a disinhibited younger brother what could possibly happen next..... Of course the women are so much more complex, no sorry I'm lying. It's incredibly sad that all the sets costumes and hard work of the rest of the team come to nought with appalling acting, direction and at the end of the day a pretty threadbare story. What a stinker!!!!!
