Close quarters, living and working in dangerous territory.
18 October 2017 | by whopthedobrittlenessSee all my reviews

I only saw the first episode of this series and I loved it. It had enough teasers in to get me hooked on the promise of entertaining future episodes.

Being exposed to the military myself (Not the British Army) I have seen a post in a hostile environment, where the military families (living on base, sometimes with vast different backgrounds) are flung together for periods of time - Those families do not have the luxury of failing to make it work.

This makes for interesting living arrangements and dynamics. Women don't always have it easy, despite who you are and where you come from, you are pegged to your husband's status and position. A bit tricky to navigate when you are living in each other's pockets.

Be aware that there might be small details that are not 100 % correct regarding the setting. However, looking past that, I am crossing my fingers that this series has potential.
