I just binge watched the upcoming show Home Fires, another great offering on MASTERPIECE. All my favorite actors in a fabulous production. You're going to love it. Strong women, the W.I., small village, the shadow of WWII, and more. Home Fires is everything we've come to expect from a good British production.
Home Fires, a 6-part drama, will start Sunday, October 4 and show on consecutive Sundays through November 8, 2015, on PBS. Note the special time of 8:00 pm. Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey) and Francesca Annis (Reckless) star as bitter rivals for control of the Women's Institute in a rural English town as it struggles with the onset of World War II.
Hailed by the London Daily Mirror as "an astonishing story about women as war breaks out" the six-part MASTERPIECE series also stars Clare Calbraith (Downton Abbey), Ed Stoppard (Upstairs Downstairs), and Claire Rushbrook (Whitechapel).
Home Fires will be available to view online at pbs.org/masterpiece beginning the day after broadcast for a limited time.
