Plot summary: First of a two-part drama, starring Tom Hardy as Jack Rose, a soldier trapped in a German PoW camp, desperate to return home to England and his girlfriend Lizzie. When a daring escape attempt sees the young man locked up in the sinister Colditz and fellow comrade McGrade running free, Jack shouts a final plea to him to find Lizzie and assure her that he will be home soon – unaware of the effect his request will have on all of their lives. Conclusion of the two-part drama. Believing Jack to be dead, Lizzie turns to drink in an effort to keep her nerves under control – but her problems multiply rapidly as her flat receives a direct hit from a German bomber. The prisoners’ morale receives a boost as they are sent parcels of unusual gifts – which conceal vital escape equipment. Sawyer finally returns to Blighty and quickly develops suspicions about McGrade, while Ullmann learns about Rhett’s dependence on morphine.
