    Brian R.

    This is one of the BBC's best drama's! There is not a bad episode in this brilliant series.
    The sets are up to the usual standard for this period (Dr. Who fans will know what I mean) but that aside, as far as the two most important factors are concerned, the acting and the writing, both are excellent/first rate, I cannot praise them enough. This drama does just what a good one should do, it gets you totally immersed in it, being totally hooked/driven to follow the main characters. It works on many levels, willing the prisoners to make a successful escape bid and the sheer ingenuity it took to do so and this is balanced with the German perspective.
    If you are looking for a classic DVD box set to purchase.............look no further!!
    This series certainly benefited from the advisory input of one of it's famous escapees, Major Pat Reid (who also devised the great board game Escape from Colditz).

All 28 episodes of the 1970s BBC drama series starring Robert Wagner and David McCallum. The series portrays the tortuous experiences of Allied prisoners of war incarcerated at Colditz Castle during World War II. Purpose-built by the Nazis to hold high-risk and politically important prisoners, the prison had a reputation for being escape-proof, but this did not stop its prisoners from making many attempts to escape their captivity. The series dramatises various real events in the prison's history from the arrival of the first British prisoners after Dunkirk until the liberation of the castle by the Americans in 1945, and also explores the relationships formed between the various nationalities and their German captors.
