Storyline

Following his outburst Victor is placed in a psychiatric ward where visitors Rachel and Cal inform him of Dieter's pal to marry hotel waitress Anna - which clearly unsettles him as he persists in declaring the German to be a Nazi collaborator. Making his escape he encounters secret service agent Salter, who warns him against exposing Dieter for Cal's sake and the youngster attempts an unsuccessful suicide bid. Some days later Lindsay-Jones makes a speech at the Foreign Office, supposedly to present the appeasement party's viewpoint and criticize Churchill's belligerence though he ultimately back-pedals. Cal is shocked, especially when Li9ndsay-Jones comes out with the truth. Written by don @ minifie-1

Episode 6
9 January 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Victor has been placed in a psychiatric ward loathed by the way these useful Germans are being treated so well when they have so much blood in their hands.

Victor is particularly upset that Dieter plans to marry the hotel waitress Anna. Dieter confesses to Cal that he did collaborate with the Nazis over forced labour, a reason why he wanted to go back to Germany knowing one day he will be exposed.

Agent Salter who Cal threw out of the hotel is still hanging about eavesdropping and pushes Victor to the edge.

Lindsay-Jones who planned to expose the appeasers gets cold feet. He confesses to Cal that he was one of them at the time.

Another episode and still Angela Bassett is wasted. For those who have stuck with it so far, they will realise their time is being wasted. I never understand when people go on about longer form serials allows the 'drama to breathe.' To me it just an euphemism for being boring.
