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.

"Wish Me Luck" has everything a good WWII series should have: interesting characters, suspense, triumph and tragedy, as well as a good dose of realism about the terrible pressures faced at all times by the incredibly brave men and women who went undercover to work with the French Resistance groups. I only wish that the entire series was available in North America - I have series 1 only - and it's awful to be left hanging without seeing series 2 and 3. I did see these when "Wish Me Luck" was originally shown on TV, but I would like to be able to show this story in its entirety to the younger generation of my family. I feel that this series is an education for young people, now so far removed from the Second World War.

This is very good, it's interesting to see things in history that we never heard about, can't wait until the next one comes out. You can't find any better period pieces than the ones the British make.
I had not heard of this, but thanks to Amazon sending me emails with things they think I might like, I have discovered many new series that I have never heard of.

SOE thriller, action, suspense, top-notch. British women in the Special Operations Executive branch of the war fought in silence, often leading men, risking all they had, and in the case of these great episodes also finding romance occasionally along the way. But duty also preceeded any romance. Beautiful, but tough women, all taking place in 1943. It's a different part of the allied War on the European Front. Women in strong roles, history (based on real stories), and tense episodes. 7 excellent episodes that do run a continuing story, picked up from the previous season. So good my wife and I could not stop and watched all 7 one after another in a single day, breaks only to fix food.

This series 2 is even better than "WISH ME LUCK: Series 1" and could be used alone, but if you've not seen the first, you might want to consider finding both sets. More military/spy action/fighting in this 2nd series. And there surely will be a final coming some day. WISH ME LUCK ran on TV for 3 years. Excellent historically accurate war drama. Fantastic period viewing for 1940s London and France.

Returning cast: HQ-Faith (Jane Asher-Death at a Funeral ,Holby City).....Spy Kit (Michael J. Jackson-The Glory Boys, Mobile).....HQ-Liz (Kate Buffery-Trial & Retribution ).....HQ boss-Cad (Julian Glover-Troy, Star Wars, The Avengers ). Faith & Liz were spies in series one under spy leader Kit, whom one had a relationship with, oops.

Episode details for those interested. Each average 54 minutes.
All have SUBTITLES, the only bonus material.

Wish Me Luck Series 2 continues the exploits of the members of the SOE agents dropped into France during WW II. This series is an excellent characterization of life during those years, with rationing, loss of family and friends and women taking on new roles. Churchill told the SOE to set the world ablaze, and these agents certainly did. The characters are engaging, and action is exciting. The historical significance is outstanding. England was struggling in the War against Germany. The SOE and their cadre of spies made a huge difference in the War's outcome. This series is certainly worth the cost and would be a wonderful addition to your DVD collection.

I first watched this series, Season one, on streaming Netflix. I loved it. Brave women eager to fight Nazis, fight for their country, and help Europe endure and eventually repel Fascist rule. Specifically France, in this case. Acting is typical British high standards, heavy on the stiff upper lip school. Each episode has detailed character development and introduces a new danger or situation that demands you watch the next episode to see what happens next. Beautiful settings, sets, scenery, costumes and vintage machines. I love the big wooden tables with the French loaf and the knife on a cutting board in just about every stone farm kitchen. Female heroines very sympathetic, human failings and fears, very engaging. Nazis were more wily and calculating than crude villains, which made the plot interesting cat and mouse game. So bottom line, I had to have more, more, more. Since Netflix only offered Season 1, I ended up buying Seasons 2 and 3 from Amazon, and that's pretty much all I watched with great enjoyment until I was finished with it all. I'll probably watch it again.

Tale focuses on the British SOE (Special Operations Executive) who recruit and train British women who have backgrounds that will let them pass as French women in Nazi occupied France during WWII. For those so interested the SOE really existed and was created in 1940 by Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Minister of Economic Warfare Hugh Dalton to conduct guerrilla warfare against the Axis and to instruct and aid local resistance movements. The main characters include an aristocratic woman and a factory worker who train together with others and are later sent to the same area of Nazi occupied France to go undercover and gradually gain crucial pieces of information. This series is much more interested in the characters and dialogue, especially how the war wears them down and affects the heads of SOE as well as loved ones back in England. I enjoyed this one more than the first season though the first season was good. They got rid of the jazzy music which didn't feel right during chase scenes. The aristocratic woman (Vivien) who's trained is multifaceted and gives the series a controversial ending. Liz's marriage crumbles and gives her an additional incentive to return to operative work. STORY/PLOTTING: B; CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B to B plus; FOCUSES: B plus; OVERALL GRADE: B plus; WHEN WATCHED: September to October 2011.
