Storyline

Cal introduces Lindsay-Jones to Frau Bellinghausen whilst Eva and Rachel organize a fashion show, interrupted by Victor, who gives his brother evidence of Dieter's allegiance to the Nazis, illegally obtained, with Cal stepping in to prevent Victor's arrest. Cal also unearths a plan by Lindsay-Jones and others to have tried to avoid the war whilst Kathy discovers the location of Birgit Menz, a witness to Dieter's past and is persuaded by Cal to entertain her, though she gives away nothing. Dieter however surprises Cal with an announcement and Victor is angry when Kathy refuses to look at more evidence that he has discovered and reveals the treatment of Birgit, overheard by Salter.

Episode 5
27 December 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Callum decides Lindsay-Jones might be better to get the secrets of the perfume from Frau Bellinghausen but she is having none of it.

Victor has uncovered evidence that Dieter was using slave labour when developing jet engines for the Nazis. Although Dieter has been cracking on with his work for the British, this now places suspicion back on him. Kathy has found a woman who might shed more light to Dieter's past.

Callum goes to the Foreign Office and easily finds the minutes to the meeting about the plans for a coup against Hitler which could had prevented the second world war just as Lindsay-Jones had said.

Victor is still a loose cannon not happy how all these Nazis are being wined and dined and Salter is still listening in even though Callum had thrown him out of the hotel.

Again instead of moving forward I just felt the plot has stepped backwards. Back to Dieter being more of a Nazi than first thought, Victor going haywire again. I even predicted Lindsay-Jones would come a cropper and he nearly did. Just more padding of a serial that should had been done with in four parts.
