Civilians turn heroines in this compelling British WWII series

At the height of World War II, France is occupied and all of England is in peril. Col. James "Cad" Cadogan (Julian Glover, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) will use any means necessary to get the intelligence he needs--even sending civilians to work undercover behind enemy lines. Based on the real-life stories of women recruited by Britain’s Special Operations Executive, this suspenseful drama series follows wife and mother Liz Grainger (Kate Buffery, Trial & Retribution) and half-Jewish factory girl Matty Firman (Suzanna Hamilton, 1984) from training in England through the terror of their daily lives in Nazi-occupied France.

Filmed on location in Britain and France, this gripping wartime drama boasts strong female characters, tension-filled plots, and historical authenticity. Also starring Jeremy Northam (The Tudors), Jane Asher (A Voyage Round My Father), Michael J. Jackson (Doctors), and Warren Clarke (Dalziel & Pascoe) as German Col. Werner Krieger.
