5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate WW2 Series, 13 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Secret Army - The Complete BBC Series 1, 2 & 3 [DVD] (DVD)
This cult series maintains its popularity and rightly so thirty plus years after it's creation. An excellent team of writers and the superb production of the BBC Drama dept.of the time. I have been a fan of this programme ever since it first came to our screens. The use of locations and the attention to detail is the making of the programme. The actors are convincing and the way they interact builds a suspense and credibility which has remained the ultimate in this genre. Although occasionally available on satellite you cannot beat the dvd without the ad breaks. The information available in Andy Priestner's companion "manual" 'The Complete Secret Army' adds to the series by detailing the background to each episode. The series has gained many followers who came to it through the parody Allo Allo, which used to annoy me but I appreciate that too. The follow-up series Kessler did not have quite the same addictive qualities but if you wish to follow the fate of the character so ably crafted by Clifford Rose it is worth buying. You may now gather that I liked the series immensely!Secret Army - Series 1-3 [DVD]

I loved this series when it was first broadcast and introduced my wife to it about three years ago thanks to the boxed set. It is a real gem.

I enjoyed your review although I have to say I enjoyed Allo! Allo! from the first time I watched it. I think part of my enjoyment was knowing it was a parody of Secret Army and, as Mr. Caine would say, not a lot of people know that.

I was interested in your comments on Kessler. I have been thinking about getting it but have reservations.

I'm currenlty reading Matthew Cobb's history of the Resistance in France. It is simply calle "The Resistance". The accounts in the book tell of the same atmosphere caught by Secret Army, albeit in Brussels.
