pasdetrois October 21, 2015 Share October 21, 2015 I'm enjoying this so far. I love these PBS/BBC period dramas any way. But this one appeals especially because my father flew bombing missions out of East Anglia during WWII. He used to talk about going into the nearby villages on days off. Occasionally they would be guests in the local manor homes - a kind of hazard reward. (American crews flew in daylight initially and thousands were shot out of the skies. English crews flew at night and also suffered tremendous loss of life.) So I watch this series with him and the other military guys in mind, seeing what they saw. The farmer is a good-lookin' hunk of beefcake. Good to see Francesca Annis. I saw her long ago in The Elephant Man. She disrobed to the waist on the stage, with her back to the audience, and the theater was utterly silent. She was dating the younger lead actor and combined with the on-stage disrobing it was quite A Thing. 5 Link to comment
