Frequently Bought Together
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
One man fights his own battle against everyday evil-in extraordinarily dangerous times.
Returning for a three-episode encore, this enormously popular, award-winning mystery series stars Michael Kitchen (Out of Africa) as Detective Chief Inspector Christopher Foyle, a police investigator in the British coastal community of Hastings. In the immediate aftermath of World War II, Foyle finds his longed-for retirement interrupted by cases involving international intrigue, military racism, and an accused traitor all too willing to go to the gallows.

Most TV programs present the world in mind-numbingly superficial terms, but not Foyle's War. Not only is the main plot always well written, but each episode also contains secondary and tertiary plots that hold our attention thus adding depth and complexity to the overall story. As you would expect, the main characters are well-defined, but so are the secondary ones. This is how it should be in a good detective drama: when a new character emerges, he or she should be regarded as a potential suspect, so that the audience never quite knows who to suspect. Foyle's War always has plenty of characters with interesting personalities to grab our attention (and draw suspicion away from the real culprit). But, in order for this ploy to be successful the dialogue must be exceptional, the acting superb, and the drama must have enough twists and turns to keep us off kilter for the entire 90 minutes of each episode. Plus, the various plots must be artfully intertwined. These are no small requirements to pull off.Read more ›
Thank you BBC,. .
This was a life of rationing and dread. We feel with the characters their frustrations of day to day life, but also their spirit and determination. We feel their dread about losing their loved ones, either through bombs being dropped on them, or as soldiers. We feel the anguish of those soldiers who came back home missing limbs, or suffering from battle shock.
I simply marvel at the skill of these actors, but most I marvel at the quality of the writing. It is absolutely superb.
If you like a good British series with great acting and writing, along with heaps of nostalgia, this series is for you.
