Editorial Reviews

Set in the economic and social decline of Britain at that time, it was a frightening tale of the near future, where the economy had collapsed, the price of things had become subject to hyperinflation, and lawlessness had become rife due to hardship and desperation felt by the mass population. It follows the Mortimer family and their fight to survive chronic food shortages and the riots of a ruined country. In a sudden house-move to a mansion in need of restoration in the countryside, the patriarch of the family, Norman Mortimer, strengthens the cellar to hoard food in preparation for the shortages to come. He does this in secrecy, as he does not want to advertise widely what he is up to for fear of his new home becoming a target for looters.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different time. December 2, 2010
By J. Holt
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was expecting a little more for my thirty dollars then one DVD, but apparently 3 hours, or 7 episodes is all there is. Still glad I got it. The series itself is fascinating. Too grim for children, British currency devalues, and with British money being worthless prices skyrocket and merchants hold back what produce they do have. The end result a lot of people grow more and more desperate for food, and animals crawl out of the woodwork. The main protagonists is an ex military man and his family. He predicts the crisis and has a cellar full of food at a time his when neighbors are going hungry. Though his goal of keeping his family fed is admirable, he's such an idiot about it it's hard to feel any sympathy for the guy. He makes his little girl get rid of their dog, then takes in the most loathsome creature I've ever encountered on television, a man in his seventies who tries to blackmail him into letting him sleep with his eighteen year old daughter. People find out about his food cellar and things go from bad to worse.

There's a lot of talk on the morality of hoarding food that's odd listening to today. At the time in Britain they felt it was very wrong. Sad thing is today in America he wouldn't have been noticed. Every Mormon family has a years supply stashed away, and don't expect them to share with you, unbeliever. Goldman and Sacks employees take swine flu vaccine from babies and nobody thinks twice about it. The time and place of this series is different and hard to relate to, but very interesting.
