IF ONLY THEY STILL MADE PRODUCTIONS OF THIS QUALITY
on 18 February 2016
Having bought the DVD and watched the series, I thought I'd check the reviews to see how they compare to my own views. I was surprised to see two reviews giving this series just two stars.
Let me just say, this is the best period drama I have probably ever seen, and I've seen quite a few, most get me reaching for the off button.
I like the contrasting story lines of the war and home fronts, I like the multi dimensional characterisation, the casting was excellent. Most of the series is quite true to life, however there are the odd episode where its not, it took me 12 episodes to find one.
I would certainly recommend this series to anyone interested in WW1, the RFC, period dramas, history and military history in particular. Indeed anyone who enjoys quality acting, multi-dimensional characters and plots, brilliant scripting and a touch of class. They don't make them like this any more, and more is the pity.
