Sensitively told story of Love and Society's Cruelty to Gay Men
I've only seen episode one but it impressed me so much I watched it again.
Keep an eye out for this one I wish they'd made a feature movie of it possibly the most bittersweet love story I've seen and 75 years on we are still fighting prejudice and hatred in some quarters for our love. I haven't seen the conclusion yet but part 2 is set in modern times Part one is a World War 2 love story I have to watch again. It's difficult to single out one acting performance as all are excellent but in episode one the two lovers Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Michael Berryman and James McArdie as Thomas March are both heartbreakingly convincing and sadly portray perfectly the pain of that era of the love that dare not speak its name. I must mention Frances de la Tour who as Mrs March give a brief but poignant portrayal of a mother who just wants her son to live a life of peace and love. I'll add to this when I see episode 2
