Product Description

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.

If you are searching for a thinking-person's TV series then Foyle's War will yield many pleasant surprises. The British series, set during the Second World War, follows the murder investigations of Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle, played by Michael Kitchen (Out of Africa [Blu-ray]). Although each season corresponds to a year of WW II (season one with 1939, season two with 1940, and so on), we never see any frontline action. The entire show takes place on the English home front. But what a home front! Blackmail, smuggling, espionage, and of course murder and mayhem all make their appearance. And it's up to Foyle to solve the murders.

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.

This wonderful series, that many of us thought had ended, has returned with three episodes that prove, once again, that this is an example of quality viewing.

We love the Foyle's War series. We both love historical fiction, especially that set around the two World Wars. Foyle's War manages to educate about history (they almost never err on historical detail - trust me, we've checked) and provide a wonderful mystery at the same time. We waited in eager anticipation for this set to hit Canadian shores and bought it on the day it was available. I was worried about putting it in the DVD because my anticipation was such that there was a huge chance of disappointment. Well, in fact, the series maintained it's crisp writing and astonishing character potraits. But, and this is big, the final episode may be the best of the entire series. And that's saying a lot. I envy you if you haven't yet seen it and are about to purchase it.

I was born in Montreal Canada,a few months before the start of the second world war, I loved the 5 first series much more than the 6th, they were so original, and the Foyle character was just so sympatico, the 6th serie was mostly good, just that the stories and the characters were starting to get a bit long in the tooth in some of the stories, I bought series.7, but I have not received it yet, I do hope that they did not make the stories too sentimental and corny, but even if they did, I am sure that I will still enjoy it. I just love Michael Kitchen.
Thank you BBC,. .

Absolutely a wonderful series about ordinary life in England during the second world war. Great acting and brilliant writing, this is a series that offers a glimpse of what it was like on the home front for the English people. In fact, this series was quite an education for me, as my father was a young boy of 5 living in London when England went to war against Germany and its allies.

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.

I love series - so little good on TV these days so watch my favourites when TV line up is poor - this series takes you back to a time when moral justice was the goal of law enforcement

Michael Kitchen's, as Inspector Foyle, in WW2 England is quite believable. The hardships the English people suffered and the humanity shown (good and bad) were very well played.
