Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The "Foyle" of the title is Detective Inspector Christopher Foyle Michael Kitchen, and the "War," much to his chagrin, is one that he must engage in on English soil, while the real war against Germany takes place across the Channel on the Continent. Nonetheless, he is a formidable sleuth, and his cases reflect the turmoil and tensions of the WWII period, even if he isn't in the battle zone. Set 2 of Foyle's War includes the four films that aired weekly on Britain's ITV1 beginning November 16, 2003. The opener, "Fifty Ships," finds Foyle trying to solve a murder wherein his old flame Jenny Wentworth happens to be a suspect, while his young sidekick, Sam Honeysuckle Weeks, looks for a new home after hers is bombed. Sam goes undercover in "Among the Few," as Foyle tries to flush out illegal petrol traders. Dastardly corporate doings draw our hero's attention in "War Games," when an unscrupulous businessman gets into bed with the Nazis. Finally, in "The Funk Hole," Foyle winds up on suspension from duty when he's charged with rumor mongering, which makes his investigation of the titular countryside retreat all the more challenging.
