Review: SS-GB (S1 E2/5), Sunday 26th February, BBC1

The first episode of SS-GB was an unsettling look at what Britain would look like if the Allies had lost World War II. London was cloaked in Swastikas and echoed with the sound Gestapo boots, its population starting to feel the full force of oppression. 880 more words

BBC confirms SS-GB transmission date

I must confess to enjoying the odd alternative reality crime story or thriller (CJ Sansom’s Dominion is highly recommended) and bloody love Philip Kerr’s Bernie Gunther novels set in war-time Berlin. 278 more words
