Series 4, Episode 2 - Camp Dance

Whilst Edith, René, Yvette and the Colonel manage to make their escape from the camp (hiding in a rubbish truck, with Gruber's help), Maria has managed to post herself to Switzerland. Hans has also disappeared following his successful breakout; where could he have got to?

Further details

Aided by Gruber, René and company dance their way out of the POW camp. We learn that Maria has deposited herself in the mail to escape. Unfortunately, she affixes the wrong amount of postage, and, disguised as a Red Cross parcel, is returned to Switzerland, never to be seen again!


Captain Hans Geering (Sam Kelly) 'appears' in this episode by voice only.
