Into the lives of the villagers come the glamorous young airmen - dashing and daring - with no comprehension of rationing, blackouts, food shortages and all the conditions with which the English residents have been coping for years.
Dr Helen (Susannah York) sees her Marjor husband posted to North Africa while her daughter Pat opts to leave university in the hope of doing war work. Helen soon gets to know the US troops as she treats the wounded at the local hospital - and before long she finds herself drawn to Major Jim Kiley. When her husband is invalided out of the army, where will the loyalties of the doctor lie - and can her own daughter forgive her for falling for the man she also desires?
Publican Jack Blair, a widower, has two daughters. Land Girl Vi falls for kindly airman Chuck - but when he goes missing following a flight over Germany she waits anxiously for news. Sister Rosie, meantime, has plenty boys to choose from and delights in teasing Hymie and Elmer in particular.
Stern father Bert Munday keeps wife Vera and children Peter and Letty on a tight rein - but his daughter is soon the cause of false accusations in the town before finding herself in real trouble after the death of her airman boyfriend. Brother Peter moves out to avoid his bullying dad whilst he awaits the call up - but Bert finds his own morals tested when his 'Spiv' brother in law, Stan, turns up with plans to stock his shop with under the counter items.
Sally (Carolyn Pickles) has two young children and a husband reported killed.Read more ›
The licence given to fiction allows it to deal, albeit speculatively, with the twin themes of aggression and sexuality, and the very simplicity of the plot lines leaves space for our imagination to relive the crazy dilemmas of the time. The exquisite device of interleaving contemporary footage, a disaster in clumsier hands, is perfectly accomplished, and provides a poignancy to the occasionally stilted characters.
Praise be to the inventors of DVD who allow us to re-sample life in 1981/1943, you won't see the like of this made again.
I love the series, and watched it on T.V. when it was first broadcast in Melbourne in February, 1983.
It is a finely acted piece, with the lovely Susannah York in the lead role as Doctor Dereham.
She was only forty at this time, and was perfect for the part. The American actor, Michael J. Shannon is also marvellous as Major Kiley - pity we do not see more of this fine actor.
The quality of the DVDs is excellent, and I have been very happy to play it again.
I would recommend it to anyone interested in the history of the American involvement in the British effort to win against the Germans in World War ll, as the attention to detail is wonderfully accurate, even the hair styles.
As usual, the English village is a very photogenic subject, and the whole 13 episodes were loved by me!
It's great to spot the actors that were familiar at the time -Ray Smith as cantankerous shopkeeper, Mundy; Susannah York as good natured Dr Dereham; Ronald Hines as her ill fated husband ,Ronnie. The actors playing the Yanks are recognisable too especially James Saxon, David Blaxt & Gavin O'Herily as I remember them quite well. The subplot romances are touching - Vi and Chuck ' s love affair and Joe Mcgraw & Sally Bilton and these are actually more interesting than the main love affair between Helen and Major Jim Kiley. In fact, Helen & Jim's affair is the main reason I purchased this as I wanted to see it again , properly as an adult. It was slightly disappointing that their romance isn't as strong as it could have been; their illicit affair begins slowly and there are lots of awkward moments between the two. Only when they reach London together to do we get to see them consummate their 'relationship'. I understand in the context of the time it would have been very taboo for a married lady to have an affair, especially one where she is a pillar of society ( and to the fact she still feels a duty and responsibility to her crippled husband ,whom I also remember. ) However, Susannah & Michael J.Shannon excel in their roles.Read more ›
