Civilians turn heroines in his compelling British WWII series

While World War II rages, British women risk their lives as undercover agents in occupied France. As D-Day approaches, the team gets a critically important assignment: to help stage an uprising that will divert German resources from the landings in Normandy. Now heading the team’s London office, Faith Ashley (Jane Asher, A Voyage Round My Father) recruits two new agents to work in Le Crest, a Resistance stronghold in the French Alps.

Based on actual events in Vassieux-en-Vercors, a town in France famed for its acts of resistance during the German occupation, the final series of this gripping wartime drama features strong female characters, historical authenticity, and spectacular scenery. The suspense builds toward an emotional, action-packed finale. Also starring Shirley Henderson (Bridget Jones’s Diary), Jane Snowden (All Passion Spent), Kate Buffery (Trial & Retribution), Terrence Hardiman (Cadfael) as General Stuckler, and Michael J. Jackson (Doctors) as Resistance leader Kit Vanston.

Format: DVD
A war thriller, action, suspense. British women in the Special Operations Executive (SOE) branch of the war fought in silence, often leading men, risking all on the French theater. Subplots in these 8 episodes also finding occasional love. Duty for the women gets ugly and hard. Triumphs with tragedy. Takes place in 1944 in SE France, with bits in London HQ. Women in strong roles (based on REAL stories), and tense episodes that provide a magnificent view of idyllic French countryside. Excellent attention to period detail. 8 episodes with a continuing story, picked up from the previous season. So good my wife and I watched all, one after another.

"WISH ME LUCK: Series 1 & 2" might be considered as well. One introduces characters that continue throughout the 3 years by involvement in some dicey espionage. More military/spy action/fighting in 2nd. Historically accurate war drama. Fantastic 1940s depiction of London and France. It's a segment of real war action that is seldom featured.

Cast: now head of HQ-Faith (Jane Asher-Death at a Funeral).....Spy Kit (Michael J. Jackson-The Glory Boys, Mobile).....Spy-Liz (Kate Buffery-Trial & Retribution)....Spy Emily (Jane Snowden who reminds me of Honeysuckle Weeks)...Fr. Girl Sylvie (Shirley Henderson-The Way We Live Now)...Nazi Gen (Terrence Hardiman-Cadfael; Prime Suspect)...well, and a bunch more.

Episode details for those interested. Each average 52 minutes.
All DO have SUBTITLES
Episode 1 French Alps set and a Frenchie, Nicole, helps when the Nazi nearly capture Emily traveling to join Kit. London's new SOE head, Faith, sends 2 spies to Le Crest, Virginia & Lewis, an antagonistic team. Nicole has her own interest in the resistance people.

2 Kit's to lead a major military supported uprising.

I had to get the whole set - it just wasn't what I expected at all from a BBC made for TV period show.
Perhaps I was expecting something in the "Allo Allo" vein set in occupied France, I can only say my surprise was complete.

I had previously thought the best effort on WW2 to come from the UK was Foyles War - from a woman's perspective I'm afraid Wish ME Luck might just have an edge. That really would come down to personal preference.

Series three of Wish ME Luck builds on the same surviving characters we came to know and be drawn into through series one and two as it brings us to the end of the war.

It has all the elements that made series one and two so captivating, for me at least. Love, betrayal, loyalty, courage, determination and force of character were all displayed by the actors in a very finely tuned and most professional way - a way that had the ice-cream forgotten and melting in the bowl!

All aspects of this series about the Women's spy service were excellently executed - the costumes were very detailed, the sets profesional, even the aircraft didn't look like cheaply done computer animations or enhancements.

Between the characters, the storylines, both of which were excellently developed, and the sets the viewer is almost irresistably drawn into and through the period with every advancing episode.

The only advice I could possibly give to anyone, and its from a personal perspective, if you like drama, and set around this period, buy the entire set. You probably will eventually anyway. If you must or can only get one series, start with the first.

I do not think you will be disappointed.

Format: DVD
The story opens with Adele (Jane Snowden), a British resistance worker, nearly being arrested by the Nazis after she was caught with a radio set at the highway checkpoint on the way to Le Crest, France. Adele and her British colleagues are in Le Crest to aid the Maquis du Vercors, a French resistance group. The work they have to do is difficult and their lives are often at stake against the Nazis who have no qualms when it comes to killing innocent citizens.

D-Day is drawing closer and the Special Operations Executive branch in England has requested that the Maquis stage an uprising to divert Nazi resources from Normandy. But things don't go as planned. There is an informer in the resistance group and someone makes a deadly mistake that will have grave consequences on everyone.

Wish Me Luck, Series 3 is based on actual events that happened during World War II. This made the story all the more real and heartbreaking. There are eight episodes, and in every episode, heavy usage of pathos was evident. The finale was depressing to say the least. If you are a fan of happy endings, stay away from this series.

This series is a British television drama. There are three series altogether, which aired from 1988 to 1990. Unlike many television series nowadays, the producers of this series were not afraid of sad endings. Being brought up in a television culture of happy endings, this series was an unusual one for me. It was unusual in a good way because it reinforced the belief of reality. Happy endings don't always happen in real life.

Acorn Media released this series in DVD in July. The sound and image quality are excellent and clear. I particularly liked the availability of subtitles. Since I have difficulty understanding Western accents, they came in handy.
