Civilians turn heroines in this compelling British WWII series
In the midst of WWII, brave British women risk their lives as secret agents in occupied France. Their assignment is sabotage, subversion, and propaganda; their fate, if caught, is torture or worse.
Now an experienced operative, Liz Grainger (Kate Buffery, Trial & Retribution) is working in the London home office under the direction of Colonel James "Cad" Cadogan (Julian Glover, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). Desperately needed recruits join the team, but they bring troubles of their own. Vivien (Lynn Farleigh, Pride and Prejudice) carries a secret that may compromise her judgment, while Emily (Jane Snowden, All Passion Spent) is a skilled radio operator but dangerously raw at the spy game. How will they fare in France, where even the smallest mistake can prove fatal?
Based on the real-life stories of women recruited by Britain’s Special Operations Executive, Wish Me Luck features strong female characters, tension-filled plots, and historical authenticity. Also starring Jeremy Northam (The Tudors), Jane Asher (A Voyage Round My Father), and Michael J. Jackson (Doctors) as Resistance leader Kit Vanston.
I like this series a lot. Music is a bit out dated, but the story lines are good.Published 4 months ago by Christine H. Doze
If you are a fan of Foyle's War, this is probably not the series for you. The acting seems a bit forced, settings and photography not entirely genuine. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Amazon Customer

Episodes fall of a bit during second season. Editing, acting and writing are a little lacking and I miss the feisty, working class operative from the first season.Published 9 months ago by donald morrison

Very nostalgic and touching. The acting is wonderful. The only problem, probably due to the age of the series, is that the soundtrack is faint and somewhat fuzzy.Published 15 months ago by Katherine Gilmour
I have watched Season 1 recently and enjoy it thoroughly. Season 2 is a continuation and just as good. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Robert L. Kirby
