WWII was remembered from a distinctly feminist point of view in the long-running British drama series Wish Me Luck. Jane Asher was cast as Faith Ashley, London-based coordinator for a team of female resistance fighters, who journeyed behind enemy lines to confound the Nazis. Ashley's chief operatives (and virtually the only ones to survive all 23 episodes) were Liz Grainger (Kate Buffery) and Matty Firman (Suzanna Hamilton). Created by Jill Hyem and Lavinia Warner, whose earlier credits included the internationally syndicated POW-camp series Tenko, Wish Me Luck was telecast in England from 1988 to 1990.
