In a tented field hospital on the coast of France, a team of doctors, nurses, and volunteers work together to heal the bodies and souls of men wounded in the trenches of WWI. The hospital is a frontier: between the battlefield and home front but also between the old rules, hierarchies, class distinctions, and a new way of thinking.

Within the first minutes of watching this series I knew that I was hooked. It gives an honest representation of life in the war hospitals of Northern France during the First World War. While many depictions of war-time focus on the absolute patriotism of those involved, this series shows that lines do get blurred when individual, real people are involved. The impeccable production is what initially catches your attention, but then an outstanding cast brings the writing of Sarah Phelps to life. The dynamic relationships between the characters means that there is truly something for everyone to love in this show. In fact, I would argue that it has a lot in common with the massive hit show, Downton Abbey, as it explores many of the same themes though in a completely unique way. Where D.A. explores the realities of hierarchy in early 20th century British society, The Crimson Field does the same with the ranking within the army and hospital camps. Also present are complicated love stories, a discussion of homosexuality, loyalty and duty, one's honour, and so much more! Truly, this is one of the greatest television shows that I have seen of late. If you feel as I do, passionately about great TV, please head to ipetitions and sign to have the BBC recommission this show!

Permanent subtitles

Five stars for the story line. Excellent in every respect. Only one star for the DVD itself. The subtitles cannot be turned off. Very distracting.

Piqued my curiosity

By Billie a politics lover

from Albuquerque NM

Comments about PBS The Crimson Field (U.K. Edition) DVD:

The Crimson Field, set in 1915, begins with four volunteers who come from England to a field hospital in France to assist the nurses. Through the six episodes, we learn each volunteer's secret reason for coming, and observe how each copes and forms attachments amid the political undercurrents in the hospital. The concluding episode does not end the story, but teases this viewer to speculate about what might happen next.

Comments about PBS The Crimson Field (U.K. Edition) DVD:

I never expected to become so engrossed...so quickly in this series..only to have PBS decide to leave it hanging after only one season???Is it really so difficult to make a plan and stick to it?

Comments about PBS The Crimson Field (U.K. Edition) DVD:

I really enjoyed this series but would never have watched it if I had known it would end so abruptly with no intention of a second season. It was quality television and I am miffed that I got caught up in the story and now there will be no resolution to the many story lines. #feeling cheated.
