Loved it.
I watched this for the great story line not the accuracy of the props. Like a doctor would watch Casualty and pay too much attention to the medical terminology. I'm looking forward to season 3.

Great Show
This is one of the best shows on TV at present, but disappointed that the lovely Kate played by Rachel Hurd Wood has been in only the first episode of Series 2.

I do not think most folk would pick up on such things especially younger generations. I was born in 1948 and did not notice as I am enjoying the stories and the superb acting. I also watch the sixties drama series on ITV when the background music can be anything from the 50s to the 70s but heh so what.

Your research is very sloppy. The Spitfire in the opening sequence is a Mk 9 which was not in service until 1942 and it has D Day stripes. They is also mentioning of mouth to mouth resuscitation which was not invented until the 50s. In another airfield scene, some Bristol Hercules engines are shown. Seeing as the Spitfire and Hurricane were Merlin powered these radial engines would not have been on a day fighter base. Finally the son of Francesca Annis's character was introduced as a squadron leader but was showing the rank of a wing commander

I'm sorry but it's sloppy, and it would have been simple not to have that one in the foreground. if you don't like it, hard luck. What i said was a fact not an opinion. What next, beatles music and miniskirts in 1940?

Best thing
on the box for ages with or without the authenticity in the detail. It is entertainment not a history lesson!

It's supposed to be 1940 but the spitfire in the opening sequence has 1944 invasion stripes

Frances takes in an evacuee from Liverpool, who is not what she expected. Erica is forced to face the consequences of her actions, while Miriam writes letters to soldiers on the front line that cause more harm than good. Laura and Richard's secret affair is jeopardised when someone sees them together, Teresa receives devastating news, and Claire must decide whether or not to stand by Spencer
