Goofs

Reggie Soper is addressed as 'sergeant' throughout the series, but wears the rank of a staff sergeant (three stripes and a crown, as opposed to the three stripes only of a sergeant) and should therefore be addressed (given that he is is the Royal Army Medical Corps) as 'staff'. Though, as he is in charge of the quartermaster stores, he would usually be addressed as 'Q'. See more »

A New Aspect, Well Told!!
13 May 2014 | by SehidesSee all my reviews

Where to begin with this wonderfully written, informative, well acted and produced drama? The often untold story of voluntarily nurses in WW1 is a new aspect for the BBC. It has grit, passion, love, heartache, history, combined with an excellent script to produce a drama of the highest quality!

You invest your heart and soul into the all characters, which are so beautifully portrayed by the excellent cast. You will look away in horror at some of the scenes, cry or shout at others! The gritty realism of some of the scenes are profound! The desperation of an overworked nurse, or surgeon struggling to save lives. The fear of a wounded solder. The heartache of a relative who fears loss! Emotion in its most human form.

It simply wouldn't be right to end the series at this point. With many programmes around about the war, this one, is in some ways, more real and heartfelt. I defy anyone not to be enthralled by the scale of the set and production. The harrowing realism of some scenes will stay with you, long after the episode has ended. The BBC are quite rightly proud of the Original British Drama's they produce, and this is a fine example of one. With excellent performances from all cast members, especially new comers like Richard Rankin, this lovingly written series by Sarah Phelps has so much more to offer. Not just in terms of the characters, but highlighting an often forgotten and important area of our history!
