This is a classic. A must for all those who have fond memories of the TV series of the 1970s. Secret Army is the story of lifeline. The organisation set up in 1940 to rescue RAF aircrew from the hands of the Gastapo. The acting is superb and the storylines strong and compelling. If you invest in series 1 then you will want to own series 2 & 3. Well worth the investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great drama, 19 Feb. 2014

Junius (London, Middlesex United Kingdom) - See all my reviews

If you like world war two dramas with plenty of action and a conflict between clear cut goodies and baddies, then don't bother with this.

Instead, if you prefer intelligent and gripping drama, with well thought out characters and moral ambiguity, this is strongly recommended.

The series is not afraid to see major characters die and the outcomes of these mostly self contained episodes is never guaranteed; the Germans have successes and the Underground movement have them too, but often at a cost. Nor are the Germans one dimensional figures of evil or the Belgians entirely the good hearted patriots of war time propaganda film. What we see are real human beings, with strengths and weaknesses, ruthlessness and heroism.

Experts on World War Two may well spot loopholes, but not being one, they were not obvious to me.

It is hard to know when the drama is set; probably late 1941 to early 1942; not at a time when the Allied cuase is prospering, certainly, and one gets the idea that danger is all around for the characters in a very uncertain world. Certainly not one which anyone would want to go back to.

One of the most superb series ever. It builds fast and maintains it's pace as it goes. Often real nail biting stuff. Superb acting and writing here make for a brilliant series.
