Tv Season Info

Three young VADs (Voluntary Aid Detachments) are sent to the front in Boulogne. There, they encounter the truth of war, in all its horror and brutality; but also the strength of the human spirit, and the purest emotions of life. Together, in the face of atrocity, they will form a bond and never be the same again.

Critic Reviews for The Crimson Field: Season 1

All Critics (3)

Although the stories may not stick with the viewer in the way that many quality television dramas tend to do, both the drama involving each individual nurse as well as the soldiers they treat remain entertaining.

August 7, 2015 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

The wartime setting gives The Crimson Field more gravitas than a Downton-style soap but the premiere episode never gets too bleak.

June 22, 2015 | Full Review…

It's a similar mix of highstakes drama and old-fashioned soap, but it's too soon to say if it carries the unexpected bite of [Call the] Midwife.
