Maggie’s Kitchen, (working title) ten-part series adapted from the novel is a tense and moving drama focusing on the fortunes of Maggie, the restaurant staff and the community, as they struggle through local and national crisis. Additional storylines and a cast of complex and engaging characters, mirror the international community that war sought to protect. Each episode combines the intimate drama of Call The Midwife and the intrigue of The Bletchley Circle, and is a highlight for family viewing. The distinctive storytelling–both gritty and heart-warming–and the original setting, give a unique and original perspective of the Second World War.
