Satur­day, abc, 7.30pm

It’s a war tale with­out a whole lot of blood and gore, and con­sid­er­ing the amount of that on our screens – fic­tional or oth­er­wise – this show is a wel­come re­prieve. The sea­son two pre­miere of this pe­riod drama be­gins in June 1940 as Bri­tain faces the threat of im­mi­nent in­va­sion dur­ing World War II. The vil­lagers of Great Pax­ford live un­der a cloud of fear which leads to sus­pi­cion and dis­trust of their neigh­bours. Who can they trust when lives are lit­er­ally on the line? Tonight, Pat (Claire Rush­brook) strikes up a friend­ship with a Czech sol­dier sta­tioned nearby, while Laura (Leila Mim­mack) is forced to face the con­se­quences of her af­fair.
