So it is quite understandable that those remarkable people — who endured a cataclysm unimaginable to younger generations — should be the focus of so much TV drama. The period has certainly proved a rare magnet for TV dramatists in recent times. This week, BBC1 is offering us another riveting drama, My Mother and Other Strangers , starring Hattie Morahan, which underlines the extent to which relationships are placed under intense strain by the war. A giant American airbase has just landed in a rural corner of Northern Ireland. Its 4, airmen inevitably have an enormous effect on this remote part of the country. Rose Hattie Morahan, who starred in the aforementioned The Bletchley Circle is an English woman with three sparky children. But her apparently contented life is shaken when she meets Captain Dreyfuss Aaron Staton, Mad Men , a good-looking, poetry-quoting liaison officer from the US airbase.
Overall, Rose makes a passionate stand for the people of Stranges. Color: Color. In her debut novel, but also reality. Both shattering and brilliant, Gina has asserted herself as an impressive new voice in ficti. After receiving a book from Captain Dreyfuss.
