Product Description

The SS-GB DVD is the new 5 part BBC show based on author Len Deighton’s 
1978 alternate history novel. And if the Germans had won, then what?

It's well known that in 1940, Britain could have lost the Battle of Britain.

If the weather, of all things, had been different then so might the outcome have been.

Based on author Len Deighton’s 
1978 alternate history novel, SS-GB answers this great ‘what-if’ with some stunning, but shocking, realisations of an occupied, dystopian Britain – Buckingham Palace has been bombed and draped with swastikas.

Prime Minister Winston Churchill has been executed by firing squad (while giving his killers the V sign).

Men in leather greatcoats and jackboots strut around London’s best-known landmarks and everyone lives in fear of the Schutzstaffel, otherwise known as the SS.

However, despite the setting and the initial revelations in SS-GB, there are more shocks to come.

The drama plays out as a mystery thriller – a body is found and Detective Superintendent Douglas Archer (Sam Riley), a star investigator before the war, is put on the case.

When the Germans send over a senior member of the Gestapo to look over his shoulder, Archer realises that this wasn’t just the random death of a black marketeer but something 
far bigger and more sinister.

And in 
a febrile climate where the resistance 
is mobilising undercover, almost nobody is who they seem.

History is turned on its head in this gripping and intelligent series adapted from Len Deighton's bestselling thriller. The Second World War's Battle of Britain has ended in victory for Hitler's Germany and the population of 1940s Britain struggles to adjust to life under Nazi occupation. Renowned London detective Douglas Archer is caught between his brutal new SS bosses and a ruthless British resistance movement as he investigates what looks like a black market-related murder. Getting closer to the truth about the killing, Archer finds himself drawn into a treacherous plot as SS-GB rapidly merges crime drama with an intriguing spy tale, a compelling love story and a conspiracy thriller with global implications. With the world he once knew crumbling around him, Archer is determined to uphold the law and protect those he loves in the hope of a better future. But as he struggles between two sides prepared to go to any lengths to control the ultimate outcome of the war, which way will this decent man turn?
