A Piece of Cake

Watching the UK Channel 4 series, “Piece of Cake”, based on the novel by Derek Robinson, set during the Battle of Britain.


A pity that they could not source Hurricane fighters for the TV, but on the whole a good representation of the book.


Richard Hope plays an excellent “Skull” Skelton, as does David Horowitch as the adjutant. Both are exactly as portrayed in the novels.
As for the pilots, Neil Dudgeon, Nat Parker and all the others bring it to life.


A highly watchable series.
