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.

All this could be all be overlooked, however, if anything actually happened.

Format: DVD
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.

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.

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.

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!

Format: VHS Tape
Intelligent,thoughtful series about American airmen flying B-17 bombers out of Britain during World War II. Not every episode is uniformly excellent, but most are very good indeed so that it could probably as well be rated 5 stars. The main conflict is between the English townspeople and the airmen, and the main complaint is that the airmen are too brash & bold with respect to the English girls that they date, and these girls are definitely cute. There is one English father in particular who is a conservative ex-military man, a shopkeeper, who objects strenuously to his daughter dating an American airman, and who shows delight when his 18-year-old son finally enlists. The series follows 4-5 romantic relationships over the course of 13 hours, and in this time frame, several airmen are killed or injured, and one marries a British girl. The bombing raids over Europe also receive some attention; many scenes are in a British pub, and the pub owner is somewhat more liberally inclined towards the American airmen, who are in fact a rowdy lot, with pictures of movie stars tacked to their barracks walls and a penchant for dancing and drinking which they indulge when not flying missions. This is a nostalgic series that can offer some insights for the present generation.
