  • 1942. Two Norwegian resistance fighters try to get an elderly Jewish couple across the border - but, finding it an impossible task (seemingly), are faced with the apparent necessity of killing them instead.moreless

    A very downbeat story indeed to begin this series, appalling in its gradual unfolding of horror. With seemingly no way of getting the ailing Blumfelds to safety, and with the certainty that, if caught, they will be tortured for information about the resistance, their would-be rescuers instead elect, reluctantly, to kill them - only to discover, when on trial for murder, five years later, that the route to freedom was a little easier than they believed. The episode is shrewdly constructed to allow for considerable moral ambiguity, and well directed and acted. It's a little odd, though, to hear a British actor giving dates as "October One" or "June Thirty", in the American manner, rather than as "October the first" or "June the thirtieth".moreless
