A nice soap opera-y (in a good British way) look at the Channel Islands during World War II, when they were invaded by the Germans. We follow three very different Channel families as well as various German characters, and the series takes its time, which I loved. There was a nice range of plots and characters, who were very well rounded (no English-are-all-perfect or Germans-are-all-evil). I thought they did a good job making the story personal and immediate, yet bringing in some of the larger issues around war and the Holocaust. Nice 1940s everyday wear.
