Home Fires: Season 1

home-fires-s1What a surprise after making an initial pass on the British series, Home Fires to be delighted when I finally sat down and gave this beautiful show a chance. Excellent acting, warm stories, and interaction that makes the Bechdel Test smile broadly, Home Fires creates the perfect combination which makes British historical dramas endear as they so often do. Francesca Annis and Samantha Bond (Rosamund on Downton Abbey) work their magic as the elder characters in the show. But the younger cast members bring depth and drama to Home Fires as well. This is WWII England from a woman’s perspective. Smart and caring performances make this a great addition to the Golden Age of Television. 4 out of 5. Looking forward to Season 2.
