Colditz (1974): S02E01 – Arrival of a Hero


Introduction

Colditz is a British television drama series co-produced by the BBC and Universal Studios and screened between 1972 and 1974.

Outline

Ulmann is still seething over the “home-run” by Pat Grant and Phil Carrington, and interrogates Dick Player ceaselessly, without success. Meanwhile, the Kommandant is advised that he will have a new second-in-command, Major Horst Mohn, who arrives amidst the prisoners’ jubilation over the success of their two colleagues. Mohn informs the Kommandant that he has been sent from the Führer’s personal staff after having received both decorations for his aviation exploits and a severe wound in the stomach from a Russian bayonet. He also indicates that Hitler was informed of the successful escape attempt and insists that security be tightened up. Mohn then proceeds to antagonise the prisoners one by one, particularly Carter, whose intimate letters to Cathy he reads with great interest. Because of the friction created, the Kommandant becomes determined that Mohn should be removed from Colditz.
