Excerpt: Island at War is a British television series that tells the story of the German Occupation of the Channel Islands. It primarily focuses on three local families: the upper class Dorrs, the middle class Mahys and the working class Jonases, and four German officers. The fictional island of St. Gregory serves as a stand-in for the real-life islands Jersey and Guernsey, and the story is compiled from the events on both islands. Island at War had an estimated budget of £9,000,000 (about US$15,000,000) and was filmed on location in the Isle of Man from August 2003 to October 2003.

He knows full well that the Germans are capable of killing every single person on St. Gregory, and he encourages his friends and family to avoid stirring up the waters for fear of German retaliation.

When Phillip and La Salle arrive on St. Gregory to gather information, James worries that their presence may invite resistance; his sense of duty to St. Gregory tends to cloud his judgment. James Dorr was played by James Wilby. Felicity is James Dorr's wife. She is not a native of St. Gregory; she was born and educ
