Episode menu

Series 1, Episode 3 - They Also Served

When an unexploded World War II bomb is discovered next to the flats, all residents are evacuated - all except the Shepherds. Queenie insists that Hitler didn't force her to leave when she was 11, so he certainly won't when she's the "wrong side of 40" and he's "six feet under the ground"! But at least the situation reunites her with an old chum.
