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.

I have now purchased all of the sets that are available and am anxiously awaiting the next one. This series is very well done. There is mystery, history and humor in each episode. I highly recommend this series.

After checking this whole series out of the library, I am ready to buy the set...or receive it as a gift. The main characters are definitely people you would like to know. As a result even though the series is centered on a murder, you admire the class act that solves the crime. Well worth purchasing.

Michael Kitchen, as well as the other members of the cast, are supperb in this series. I love the way the story lines are developed and Foyle's facial expressions express far more than words can describe. Anyone who enjoys British mystery series should have this entire collection on their shelf.

We love Foyle's War. Since this purchase, we've obtained sets 3 & 4. We weren't sure what to expect but are avid fans of Agatha Christie's Poirot as well as the Sherlock Holmes mysteries with Jeremy Brett. Foyle's War was a great surprise. Engaging stories, a great cast and a history lesson rolled into one - brilliant!! Michael Kitchen is as good as they get! And it wouldn't be the same without 'Sam' and 'Milner'.

Engaging characters, beautiful scenery, intelligent plots. Of all of PBC's Nystery Theatre this show is the absolute best. I've watched every show at least twice and still love them!
