| Seems very authentic
Well my parents lived in this era and I still have my father's bird watching books WW2. It was very different - even compared from when I was young in the 70s. The first episode was excellent. Based on a book I have not read called Jambusters (sorry) I know it has not completely developed into a mini series yet but initially, at least, all the characters were interesting. We like the war dramas and this WW2 period piece has taken over from the very different crime drama Foyles War, at least it has in our house. Foyles War actually raced through WW2 (well we thought it did) and then had to survive in the Cold War. Everything about Home Fires seems to have the depth of the late 1930s and by that I mean not only the colours, like lots of greens and fawns/browns but also the correct and what are now antiques but also the cycling, or running after ambulances and being given a lift by a period tractor. The simple plots, blackberry collecting for instance, surely reflects the pace of that period. Most important the authentic characters with plenty of good actresses and actors have a great script to work on. There are interesting men, at least one nasty one, in the series so it's not just women and the Women's Institute. It might turn out to be a very memorable series. Please keep that era authentic. It's absolutely brilliant TV when it works and awful when it isn't done properly. Just one negative thing - get rid of the blue lens which gives grey hair a blue rinse!
