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 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.
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.

things get worse! they run short of men for the army. they recruit or draft women that used to live in france to be operators.
then things get desperate!!! they run short of men operators in france!!! they start parachuting the women into france.
some of these poor young women aren't good at this. some of the german secret police are really good at this.
passion, courage, desperation, fear, joy. you will be saddened, enraged, joyful and entertained. but you will not be disappointed.

Watched it although it isn't a very well done production. I expected the usual superior British productions but was sorely disappointedPublished 1 month ago by Sandra Golden
