Storyline

Kathy is disgusted to learn that Bergit was a Nazi collaborator, hoping to save herself by indicting Dieter and leans on her to give evidence. Dieter himself marries Anna with Cal as best man as Victor is released from hospital. Aware that Alex knows of his affair with Rachel Cal gives a wedding speech with an anodyne content. Frau Bellinghausen gives the formula to Cal but Victor tries to persuade Lindsay-Jones that Cal, aware of Dieter's true background, is out to kill Dieter. However it is Lindsay-Jones, atoning for his earlier actions, who decides the outcome for all concerned, allowing a happy ending for the Ferguson boys as Cal ends up with his chosen girl-friend..

When Frau Belinghausen gives the formula for her perfume she also gives a speech to Lindsay-Jones as to how easy it was to turn a blind eye when the Nazis were taking away the Jews from the factories or her neighbourhood it does make you wonder how would we behave if the same thing happened today. A few weeks after the episode's broadcast the newly installed President Trump banned visitors from some Muslim majority countries, refused to take Muslim asylum seekers from Syria and asked US citizens entering their own country about which religion they practised.

I think in a way Poliakoff managed to make his point but it was a flabby journey to get there and it took real world events to drive it home.

Dieter marries Anna with Cal as best man and plans to give a best man's speech. Victor newly released from hospital reckons Cal is planning a bit more than just give a speech and tells Lindsay-Jones that Cal aware of Dieter's true background wants to kill Dieter. It is Lindsay-Jones who takes action perhaps to atone for his earlier failings before the war started.

A wasteful series that wasted many of its actors and it really could had told its story in half the time.
