The drama opens in 1947 as Britain is trying to rebuild itself after the war. Kay (Anna Maxwell Martin) is roaming the streets, haunted by some traumatic personal loss. Helen (Claire Foy) and Viv (Claire Foy) run a marriage bureau, helping people rebuild their shattered lives by finding love. Helen obsessively clings to her volatile relationship with Julia (Anna Wilson-Jones), while Viv is continuing an affair with a married man whom she seems unable to leave. Elsewhere Viv's vulnerable brother, Duncan (Harry Treadaway), harbours a terrible secret. Moving back to the days of the Blitz, the lives, loves and losses of these four central characters are unravelled.
The Time Just Flew By
- The Night Watch review by AA
An absolutely fabulous film, covering the interwoven stories for four characters starting in 1947 and how they are adjusting to life after the war and looking back to their experiences during the war. The production was excellent and a lot of care must have been given to get the sets etc so perfect, which was matched by a series of stellar performances from the cast who in their own way were excellent. The BBC at their finest!
