Wish Me Luck is similar to Tenko and the 1970s BBC drama Secret Army, in that it deals with strong female characters coping under extreme conditions in wartime. The series also addressed social issues and divisions under wartime conditions. A great deal of attention was also paid to creating the social context of the operatives, the drama of their work, against the backdrop of an intensely detailed local “colour” in both wartime Britain and France. The third and final series which was based on the 1944 Vercors rebellion saw Jane Snowden joined by Catherine Schell, Jeremy Nicholas and, in one of her first television roles, Shirley Henderson.

However, she can’t resist gloating that Celeste is safe in England, belying Claudine’s continued attempts to convince Krieger that Liz is innocent. Episode 8 opens with scenes of Matty being tortured.

Later, Krieger’s commanding officer makes it clear that Krieger must deliver from Matty the name of the leading British agent in the area or else. Liz arrives back at Claudine’s and quickly realises Claudine betrayed Matty. Series 2 opens in Autumn 1943 with the execution by firing squad of three members of ‘The Outfit’ in South-Western France.
