Season 2 of UK WWII drama Home Fires premieres on BBC First later this month.

This is the final series of the show.

These episodes aired in the UK in April.

It’s June 1940, and Britain faces the threat of imminent invasion. As the Battle of Britain looms, the villagers of Great Paxford live under a cloud of fear and suspicion.

The villagers come out in force to welcome a group of battle-hardened Czech soldiers to Great Paxford, though Frances played by Samantha Bond and Sarah played by Ruth Gemmell, are distracted by the organisation of a thanksgiving service to mark the nationwide silencing of the church bells.

Claire Rushbrooke stars as Pat Simms who strikes up a friendship with a Czech soldier stationed nearby, but her joy at independence from Bob, played by Mark Bazeley is short lived.

Meanwhile, Laura is forced to face the consequences of her affair with Richard Bowers, whilst Spencer and Claire’s relationship takes an unexpected turn. Sarah receives some shocking news about Adam, but her sorrow is overshadowed by a tragedy for Frances. Meanwhile, Alison strikes a bargain with the police.

Saturdays at 8.30pm from September 24 on BBC First.
