Superb and subtle production values
on 4 January 2017
Brilliant; the acting, the writing, the plotting. I watched an episode per night for the last few weeks and have really looked forward to my 9pm slot each night. They capture the essence of a POW camp like no other show. Furthermore, like Danger UXB, Secret Army and Wings it was the economy of musak, the subtlety of tone and the minimalist portrayal which I value so much. This quality is so missing from glossy, modern drama productions (especially ITV) which are trying to ape the golden age of Hollywood with beautiful 'Poldark-like' actors and swirling strings to mine my emotions. In summary, less is so much more, this is a superb series on so many levels.
