History meets mystery in this award-wining PBS series (which originally aired on ITV in the U.K.), with four all-new feature-length episodes set at the height of World War II. Michael Kitchen returns as the laconic Christopher Foyle, detective chief superintendent in the British town of Hastings. War has torn the social fabric of this once-quiet coastal community, and Foyle's investigations explore the violence and opportunism that the conflict has fostered on the home front. Among the set's bonus features are a making-of documentary, production notes, and historical anecdotes behind each episode. The four mysteries on the set are from Seasons 4 and 5, and include:
"Invasion" (January 15, 2006) -- As the first American GIs arrive to build an airbase near Hastings, the murder of a barmaid further strains already tense relations between the locals and the Yanks.
"Bad Blood" (January 22, 2006) -- A top-secret experiment in biological warfare goes horribly wrong, complicating a murder investigation and threatening the life of Foyle's faithful driver, Sam (Honeysuckle Weeks).
"Bleak Midwinter" (February 11, 2007) -- The death of a young munitions worker and the murder of Paul Milner's (Anthony Howell) wife seem linked, and Foyle strives to clear his sergeant from suspicion.
"Casualties of War" (April 15, 2007) -- While investigating gambling and sabotage, Foyle takes in his troubled goddaughter and her severely traumatized son, who refuses to speak.Combining uncompromising historical accuracy with compelling mysteries, this acclaimed series continues with three feature-length episodes. Michael Kitchen stars as Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle, investigating wartime crimes in an English coastal town. With the end of World War II slowly but inevitably approaching, Foyle and his fellow citizens learn the price of victory and face a peace that will transform their lives in unexpected ways. The Foyle mysteries costar Anthony Howell and Honeysuckle Weeks, and feature Nicholas Day, Malcolm Sinclair, Nicholas Woodeson, Duncan Bell, Julian Ovenden, Mark Bazeley, Julian Wadham, and Phyllida Law. The mysteries included here -- which aired on Britain's ITV in 2008 before making their way to the U.S. via PBS.-- include:
