Yvonne finds a photo of Gary with Phoebe. He claims that it is of his grandfather but she is suspicious and follows him, seeing him vanish into thin air as he goes down the passage. Ron explains to her what has been happening and Gary attempts to tell Reg but he's too drunk after celebrating V.E. Day. Gary saves future prime minister Clement Attlee from being assassinated and thinks that maybe this is why he was sent back in time.

Fitting ending to a Great Series!
23 September 2018 | by Enrique-Sanchez-56See all my reviews

Twenty years ago, this series came to America, but I was not able to watch it through to the end. This month, I was fortunate enough to find it in the States online. I binge watched it 3 or 4 episodes each night. The story, the actors, the writing and direction took over my life to my great satisfaction.

I can't say enough about this series. Suffice it to say, I shed a tear or two at the very end. Kudos to all involved. NICHOLAS LYNDHURST was phenomenal as was each of the main actors, not to mention the Noel Coward actor, who was always so spot on.

Thank you, Alamo, SelecTV and the BBC for a truly enjoying experience!
