Am i the only one listening to Homefront?

I download the whole lot at the beginning of the week and binge listen whilst walking the dogs. Just listened to the extra programme they put out today and, unusually for me, i found it so touching and sad.

Anyone else?

I love it too. Found the very beginning rather clunky, but it soon got into its stride.
Great characters and acting. And such a clever, wide-ranging plot. I miss it when it's not on.

I'm another listener, I think it's really well done. The 45 minute play on Thursday was utterly compelling, so much so I sat in my van round the corner from a delivery until it had finished. grin

So pleased I am not the only one😊

The tramp and his back story was so well woven in, and the time always being 6:20........ lump in throat time.

I dont like it as much when it us set in the north, much prefer the Folkstone series.

Only a year of it to go.

It doesn't work for me.

The best programme on the radio about the First World War is this one:

What it was really like said by people who were there. Often compelling listening.

I find homefront excruciating. Can't wait for the war to be over!

I love it. Binged on this week's episodes while I sorted laundry this morning. I hate Juliet with such a passion.

Love it here. I found the 'treatment' of elective? mute soldier really distressing. I also just love that they have made it. Licence fee etc. etc.

Is anyone still listening? Victor is the nicest husband like, ever

I'm still listening. Some episodes are so touching and others are bizarre.

I like it although it's often completely ridiculous. How many husbands and fiancés have come back unexpectedly from the dead now? At least three.
