Editorial Reviews

As seen on PBS

"An excellent production … absolutely spiffing" --Chicago Tribune

Cultures clash in wartime Britain

Four years into World War II, the quiet English village of Market Wetherby is in for a shock--not a German invasion, but the arrival of American servicemen at the new U.S. air base. The newcomers, however, are an altogether different breed. In the opinion of many locals, they’re "overpaid, oversexed, and over here."

Predictably, some of the villagers and "the Yanks" are soon at odds. But others, like local doctor Helen Dereham (Oscar® nominee Susannah York, Tom Jones; They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?) and base commander Major James Kylie (Michael J. Shannon, The Affair), strike up a distinctly warmer relationship. And in a small place like Market Wetherby, few are left untouched by events.

We’ll Meet Again captures the drama of wartime with a mix of nostalgia, romance, and intrigue, played out by a superb international cast.

Compelling war drama about a USA Air Base in England. Struggling B-17 crews find solace among British ladies. The Yank's money is appreciated but not always their ways with alcohol and women. This is a story of the small village of Market Wetherby and it's war-weary locals, and how they cope with the new arrivals, American bomber soldiers who freshly join the war, and expect to win overnight.

The British TV has always been excellent in period television series, war dramatizations, and this is no exception. War nostalgia. It is surpurb, with added interest of half a cast of Americans joining British actors. Brits have the preserved buildings to pull off a period series. They use that to advantage. Beautiful 1943 scenery, costumes, props. This show was actually filmed in the 80s but because of the historical setting, it is a timeless DVD set; classic. Perfect for those with war interest, awesome for those interested in what it was like living in a country waiting to be invaded by Hitler's army. It is something of a cousin series to the more recent homeland war drama of "Foyles War" (a must for all British Drama fans) and "Enemy at the Door" (also good).

WE'LL MEET AGAIN cleverly mixes in actual bomber air strip and bombing raid footage. But much of the action takes place in the village homes and the local pub. Dr. Helen Dereham (by Susannah York) and Maj. Jim Kiley (Michael Shannon) are only two that show the extraordinary work that war leaders had to complete, as well as the struggles romantically of working so closely in life/death living. There's is not the only romance. Plenty of hardship and lives lost. Very believable, although I'm too young to know first-hand, being a Baby Boomer.

5.0 out of 5 stars WE'LL MEET AGAIN December 22, 2000
A Kid's Review
Format:VHS Tape
I AM NEW TO AMAZON VIDEOS AND WAS THRILLED TO FIND SUCH A TREASURE CHEST OF MY KIND OF VIDEOS SUCH AS "WE'LL MEET AGAIN". I WAS TAKEN BACK TO THE TIME IN WHICH I WAS BORN, THE FORTIES. THE STORY WAS MARVELLOUS AND GRIPPED MY HEART. THE HANDSOME AIR FORCE CAPTAIN AND THE BEAUTIFUL MAIN CHARECTOR HELD ME SPELLBOUND. I WATCHED THE ENTIRE SERIES ONE DREARY SATURDAY AND LOST MYSELF IN A DIFFERENT TIME AND PLACE. YOU WILL ADORE THIS MOVIE JUST AS I DID. I PLAN TO WATCH TIME AND TIME AGAIN. AS A 55 YEAR OLD IT'S GREAT TO DRIFT BACK IN TIME.

As originally seen on PBS, We'll Meet Again collects thirteen episodes of the British drama set four years into World War II, when the sleepy English village of Market Wetherby is rocked to its foundation by the arrival of American troops - who are, in the opinion of many locals, "overpaid, oversexed, and over here." The "Yanks" and villagers quickly take to butting heads over various issues, but not all the relationships formed are those of conflict - local doctor Helen Dereham (played by Oscar nominee Susannah York) and base commander Major James Kylie (played by Michael J. Shannon) find a connection with one another, an event that has repercussions on the whole town. A blend of drama, romance, intrigue, and character foils, succinctly written and superbly acted, We'll Meet Again is a treasure for anyone who loves the best of British drama. 4 DVDs, 679 minutes, 4:3 full screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did you enjoy this? August 25, 2010
Format:DVD
I don't know if anybody would be interested, but if you enjoyed this series, like i did, and were dissapointed that there wasn't a second series, the author who wrote the screenplay for the tv series was persuaded to write a novel carrying on the story for another 25 years, which in my opinion has a very satisfactory ending. The book can be found on amazon and is called 'We'll Meet Again-The End Of An Era'. Well worth a read.

I could not believe my lick when I found this available. I had forgotten how much I had enjoyed following the series originally. The atmosphere was authentic and you can really feel for the characters. I agree its a shame there was no sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of DVD "We'll Meet Again" April 29, 2006
By Claudia
Format:DVD
I love this movie! Michael J. Shannon, Susannah York and all the others played convincing roles: the story line and superb acting captured the essence of what one might imagine transpired against the backdrop of WWII. If you're not interested in romance or the impossible liaison, this movie is NOT for you. This story would appeal to most women who have had an impossible liaison but might not appeal to most men. I loved everything about this movie except the end! Many sub-plots are going on simultaneously and the movie was put together very cleverly and effectively. I have watched this movie a number of times and will never get tired of it. I plan to keep my three-disc DVD set forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia and chemistry February 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved this well-made series set in World War II Britain. If you've ever visited one of the decommissioned B-17 air bases in England, you can still feel the emotional residue of all those young lives risked -- and lost -- during the war. While some of the characters are stereotypes (the brash New Yorker, the bigoted shopkeeper, the bashful harmonica player, the flirtatious teenage girl), many of them are spot on. I strongly disagree with the reviewer who said there was no chemistry between Michael Shannon and Susannah York, the mature lovers at the center of the story. When Major Kiley looked at Dr. Dereham, especially in the scene on the beach, my DVD melted. I love this series and will watch it again.
