Brilliant! 31 juillet 2005
Par Ian K. Cartwright - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
To anyone who has taken an interest in the work of SOE during the War Years this series is absolutely brilliant.A lot of research has gone into the making of this series and the detail and background is second to none.If you are looking for a lot of action,you may be dissappointed,as the series does tend to concentrate on the people involved and the effect it has on their lives and the people involved in their lives.but this all makes for very real and believable drama.The characters portayed are very much based on real people involved,and the series does show how the different "social" barriers were overcome during these times.It doesn't tend to overglamourise the situation,and portrays the dangers the agents faced on a day to day basis.

As someone who has a keen interest in the work of SOE I would thoughly recommend this series.

My only concern is when are they going to release the 2nd and 3rd series ?

Undercover in occupied France 3 février 2005
Par drama lover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
I have this series on VHS and, after having watched it at least three times, still really enjoy it. I find it well-written, well-acted, well-paced, and an interesting take on the usual male spy story. As a woman, I admittedly enjoy stories about women who succeed at difficult tasks. The two women who star in this series face an extremely difficult task--to pass as Frenchwomen in occupied France, despite having spent the majority of their lives in England, while passing secrets under the noses of the ever-watchful Germans. Unlike another reviewer, I won't try to say whether members of the other sex will like it or not. I don't see it as a chick flick at all--simply as a story about spies in WWII which features the women who were spies, as well as the men. Jill Hyem is a fine writer and this is fine WWII drama. If you're looking for lots of battle scenes, however, this isn't it. This is about people, not weapons, and life among the enemy. I recommend it.

Rich view of another side of the war 3 juin 2006
Par L. F. Ribeiro - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
Finally, an exploration of WW II that demonstrates that women can be brave, loyal, daring and patriotic. For all the compelling war movies out there, its very rare that women are allowed those noble qualities as they are usually subjugated to the role of lover, femme fatal, wife, mother or child. "Wish Me Luck" features women, in all their various personal roles, but also engaged in the war to save their nation. Refreshing! For the insecure among you who need bang-bangs to reassure you there's a war going on, yes, look elsewhere for your pyrotechnics. "Wish Me Luck" tells the story of three "Baker Street Irregulars" -- or members of the British Special Operations Executive - spies sent to France to assist the resistance movement. Although the British series ran for 23 episodes, only the first 8 have made it to DVD (we can all hope for more) and follow two women and a man from training through their perilous missions in France. Subtle, thoughtful and filled with great period detail, this is great entertainment with a slightly different view of the war. If the topic interests you, do try the films "Carve Her Name With Pride" and "Odette," both based on the real experiences of well known women in the SOE.

The Reality of Special Operations Comes Through 25 juillet 2002
Par Kass McGann - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cassette vidéo
I couldn't believe it when I saw these videos in a mail order catalog. I had no idea anyone had done a program on SOE apart from documentaries. I had no idea anyone in the country knew what SOE was but us! My husband and I are WWII re-enactors and at living history events, we portray agents for the Special Operations Executive in occupied Belgium. We explain to the public that this branch of the British military recruited civilians to train, supply, and communicate with local Résistance forces (with varying degrees of success). This is a great series to show our fellow re-enactors when they are just beginning to learn the impression. The videos are a bit melodramatic and it's entirely a fictional account (none of the characters portrayed are real, although they have copied some stories straight from the SOE files). But Bob and I agree that they get alot of things right (Résistance's distrust of SOE and vice versa, the unavailability of good equipment and timely drops, the quarrelling between SOE and normal forces...). It's the fictional story of two women who go through training together and are eventually posted as a courier and wireless operator on the same team. Still it's not overly romanticized. The constant fear of discovery comes through very well. I highly recommend it.

Civilian women were recruited and sent to Nazi-Occupied France for espionage and intelligence gathering. They get the job done but it takes a toll. The "WISH ME LUCK series ONE" is based on the actual activity of women in Britain's Special Operations Executive (SOE). At the peak of WWII fighting, women did their part. This DVD set dramatically tells that story, complete with fantastic period sets, costumes, scenery, and hair. Almost as expertly done as the hugely successful (6-stars) war/home-front set "Foyle's War: Series 1-5 - From Dunkirk to VE-Day" (SEE MY REVIEW).

Men & women train together for spy work and survival while in London and 3 from the group are sent together into occupied France for an operation. Liz "Celeste" (you'll need to connect them with their code names) played by Kate Buffery is married, wealthy, with a husband in the African front, and a daughter age 5. Matty "Aimee" (Suzanna Hamilton)is low class, 1/2 Brit, 1/2 French, & 1/2 Jewish. Both well know the area being sent and speak fluent "Frog". The 3rd is Colin "Cyrano" (Jeremy Northam-"Emma") and they all meet French Resistance leader Kit "Gregoire" (Michael J. Jackson-not the former singer but from "Mobile", see my review). London SOE head is Col. "Cad" Cadogan (Julian Glover) and you also see lots of Faith (Jane Asher) a SOE exec in London.

Setting up operations followed by receiving and sending data is crucial to the Allied war effort. It's tough, touch-&-go work. Many risks are taken creating plenty of suspense, intrigue, mystery, and a very realistic look into this special group of people from WWII. Who is helpful, who is the enemy, who can be trusted, where is safety, when and what is all addressed, but never the WHY? Each of the members in the operation have their own reasons for being prepared to give their all for the success of the mission.
.....The 8 episodes in the Series 1 combine for one continuing story, one operation with some set-backs, some losses, some successes, and even some romance. A very good presentation of historical fiction done so well that it's hard to forget you are not watching a dramatized documentary. Plenty of sub-plots.

THIS SHOULD BE SHOWN TO EVERY MILITARY PERSON, MEN AND WOMEN. Also, historians, and period film lovers will want to watch.

You will not be able to stop between episodes, so find a time to watch the entire 388 minutes in one day. At least in 2 evenings. But, alas, there was a Series 2 & 3 on TV, and you will have to wait for those. They've not been released...yet?

Bonus is a bit of authentic historical background on the real SOE and a photo gallery. Sorry, no subtitles this time, nor CC.
