So... it is set in 1941 and the Nazis have invaded... so how come the Spitfire parked in front of Buckingham Palace is at least a Mk9 and has D-Day stripes...???!!!

This is just nasty. Why the frak dont they use proper, trained folk who know what they are doing? Even holding a weapon correctly seems beyond thier skill level.....

The book is excellent. It's more of a Poirot/Marple/Sherlock/Waking The Dead subject. Just happens to be set in a fictional UK where the Germans have successfully invaded.

Absolutely one of my favourite books. I am terrified they are going to screw it up on TV!

Really enjoy all his books. Girlfriend (now wife) bought me this one decades ago and loved it.
I agree, hope they do it justice, but doubt it.

????? That dosen't really matter does it? Shouldn't a film or TV programme strive for accuracy, at least in the basics? Surely something we shouldn't give up on. I mean, did the Americans give up when the Germans bombed pearl harbour? No. And neither should we.....

But remember it's borderline science fiction....as in "if the nazis had won" scenario! I'd understand and agree totally if it was loosely based on something which did happen, but it isn't! :D. Think it's what arty types refer to as "artistic license" :D

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]
