WORLD ON FIRE: DRAMA AXED BY BBC AFTER TWO SERIES

The BBC have pulled the plug on World War II drama World On Fire, written by Peter Bowker, Rachel Bennette and Matt Jones, after two series.



The series is the telling of World War Two through the eyes of ordinary people whose lives have been thrown into chaos.



The second series took viewers from the streets of Britain into occupied France, Nazi Germany, and to the sands of the North African desert, where British troops struggle alongside Indian Sappers and Australian Diggers to adapt to a very different kind of combat.


The cast included Lesley Manville as Robina, Jonah Hauer-King as Harry, Julia Brown as Lois, and Zofia Wichlacz as Kasia, with Blake Harrison as Stan, Eugénie Derouand as Henriette, Eryk Biedunkiewicz as Jan, and Cel Spellman as Joe.




World On Fire is available on BBC iPlayer.
