Wish Me Luck is a British television drama based on the true life exploits of British women undercover agents during World War II. This series aired from 1987 to 1989 and included 23 hour long dramatic episodes. The series dealt with social issues and divisions under wartime conditions. A great deal of the episodes time was given to creating the social context and the drama of their work.
The series boasts a very strong cast of great actors including, Jeremy Northam, Jane Asher, Warren Clarke, Micheal J. Jackson, Jane Snowden and Shirley Henderson. This great ensemble brings the real life stories to film and now we can relive these great assignments by these brave women for generations to come.
Wish Me Luck: The Complete Collection includes all 23 episodes on 6 disks, It says on the packaging you may see some flaws, in my opinion they are very minor and does not take away from the enjoyment you get from these great episodes. Bonus features include a photo gallery and historical backgrounds on the real operation that inspired this series.
In the end of love public television and I never got a chance to see this series. I am so glad I finally got the chance to see it now!
