Enemy at the Door (1978): S01E12 – The Prussian Officer


Enemy at the Door is a British television drama series made by London Weekend Television for ITV.

The series was shown between 1978 and 1980 and dealt with the German occupation of Guernsey, one of the Channel Islands, during the Second World War.


Arrogant Prussian officer Major Von Bulow comes to the island and is billeted with Peter whilst he trains soldiers for the Russian front. He recognises Chantal, a French prostitute in the Germans’ brothel as an old flame of Reinicke and, as he dislikes Reinicke, takes great delight in revealing her occupation, sending his batman Klinski to have sex with her. Reinicke is humiliated as planned but when a drunken Klinski, rejected by Chantal, kills her, he is also the chief suspect. He is exonerated but his reputation tarnished as Von Bulow leaves Guernsey.
