It's 1950, and the British, Australian, and Dutch women who were imprisoned together in Japanese camps during WWII remember their promise to have a five-year reunion in Singapore. Everybody's lives have moved on and changed, and each member of the group must reconcile herself to the changes that being a prisoner has made upon her life. Plans to stay in the country at Dominica's plantation, however, are disrupted when Communist bandits hold them at gunpoint and suddenly everybody's back in familiar territory, and wondering who the traitor among them is...

review on Tenko
14 June 2005 | by corahallSee all my reviews

myself and 2 sisters watched all 3 series of Tenko and agree this is by far one of the BBC better series.The whole cast were very convincing in the parts they portrayed and although the 3rd series was somewhat slower it was compelling viewing and my evenings wont be the same without it.No doubt we will be watching it again as it is a series which I would never get sick of watching.Excellent viewing and full marks to the BBC for such a brilliant series and the casting.First rate in all departments and would recommend this series to anyone although some age limits must be considered because of some adult material.So grateful to the BBC for releasing this series on DVD and Video.
