You can stream previous episodes. Recap the next episode here. In a provincial town in the British Isles during World War II, a married woman nervously enters into a flirtation with a foreign soldier. The men of his company, based nearby, are regarded with hostile suspicion by the locals. Great Paxford has been exchanged for the Northern Irish town of Moybeg, where locals gather eels from the gray shores of Lough Neagh and constant rain reduces roads to muddy ridges.
In episode 1, the sleepy village is about to undergo a transformation with the installation of an airfield and barracks for the United States air force. My Mother and Other Strangers is nothing bold. Hattie Morahan, an actress who is already a veteran of period dramas including the Sense and Sensibility adaptation , holds the heart of the story but her character has a relatively simple backstory. Also, can we have a little moment of appreciation for the fact that Aaron Staton has made it to BBC period dramas? Despite his best efforts to enjoy the potentially limited time he has left, the villagers remain hostile at every turn. My Mother and Other Strangers lacks the high drama that we grew accustomed to on a Sunday night with Poldark, but for dedicated period drama fans, it will keep those evenings occupied. Jen Scouler is a magazine journalist, film critic and the founder of Lost In Drama.
