the British TV pulls it of again
12 October 2004 | by atik10See all my reviews

While "P.O.W." won't be ranked in the alltime great TV series it is a well done and accurate piece of British quality drama.

"P.O.W." does honour to the real prisoners of war by telling their story in all it's heroism but also not forgetting the sides of their captivity which are taboo..

Supporting actors Patrick Baladi and Ewan Stewart stand out especially well in their roles, Baladi as the calm CO. and Stewart as the Scottish NCO who heads of the escape commitee. Both deliver their roles without falling into any clichés.

Also the shooting location in Lithuania passes well of as the WW2 German rural country.
