Having watched, but missed, quite a lot of the recent repeated seried on television, and when it was shown originally, when I was a proffessional DJ and out of house most evenings, it was a great treat to be able to buy this DVD set. John Thaw plays a very great part, but, for me, there was the strong sense of helplessness of the French people who watcched their town taken over by the filthy Nazi Boche. What was also hand-gripping was the complete lack of understanding, by the Nazi pigs, of why they were not welcomed and made to feel at home. Unlike some of the reviews I found the whole set absorbing, well-acted and enjoyable. The sense of sadness I felt that, when I reached the end of Episode 4, there was no more to come. And the stupidity of the commissioning TV station to let down so many viewers.
