Joe Maddisons WarBy Smits (10 reviews) from Merseyside , 18 Oct 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]Excellent film for those who like this era. Kevin Whately and Robson Green work wonderfully well together. A brilliant film thoroughily enjoyed it!
Definitely WatchableBy a customer , 08 May 2013This is one of ITV's better productions and is definitely watchable even for the acting alone. Kevin Whately and Robson Green make the perfect pair when acting out the requirements of this script Based in the North East, 'Joe Maddison's War' highlights the trials and tribulations of the 'Home Guard' mixed with family life. The film is filled with both humour and sorrow as out two unsung heroes (Whatley and Green) stumble from one situation to another. My only criticism is that the programme passed all too quickly ... as soon as WW2 started ... it was over. Perhaps ITV, realising the success of 'Joe Maddison's War', should have turned it into a series. Conclusion: If you missed it on the television then hire it out now!
WARS ACHIEVE NOTHING BUT GRIEFBy Burnhamite (407 reviews) from BURNHAM , 28 Oct 2012Watchable, but predictable about the trials and tribulations of those left behind at wartime. Many in the same ilk have been produced
Excellent war dramaBy crispin40 (562 reviews) from Stirling, Scotland , 19 Nov 2010First of all, I like the writings of the late Alan Plater. Would love to rent a season of all his plays. Secondly, I like the actors. However, I borrowed this as, whilst the people of England and Wales were able to see this on TV, those of us in the STV area were denied its showing because of some financial differences between the board of STV and the other independent TV stations. We had a re-run of Billy Connelly in the USA instead!
I thoroughly enjoyed the film and hope to find Downton Abbey and the latest Midsomer Murders series which we have also been deprived of here in Central Scotland for rental on this web site.
