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.
Sound isn't very clear, and it's a bit of a challenge to understand the accents at first - not sure if it was because of the sound quality or not. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Patti S.
I like the story line, but some of the video background is very dark for me to distinguish with impaired eyesight. Very interesting.Published 3 months ago by senior in Portland-metro
It is a bit dated, but I like the theme based on true events... Funny, the French citizens have British accents... I know, I know...Published 6 months ago by NYHormiga

I like this series a lot. Music is a bit out dated, but the story lines are good.Published 15 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 17 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 19 months ago by donald morrison
This series is really entertaining. It is suspenseful and we like that. You will enjoy this UK production. Thank you.Published on September 8, 2013 by Amazon Customer
