"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.

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.Read more ›
