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.

Enjoyed the TV presentations very much but missed so much of the dialog. Was hoping the DVDs would have English sub-titles for us hard of hearing. I don't buy any DVDs without sub-titles, nor do many others.

The acting is understated but sincerely engaged. The plots are fascinating slices of the British Home Front which was distinctly more on edge and spartan from 1939 until 1945 than the United States (1941 to 1945) and, as my parents point out to me, the U.S. Home Front was no picnic. I really feel connected to the characters, their community and their flinty, wry patriotism in the face of hardship and anxiety.

The characters are well developed and are multi-faceted. The interaction between the characters is realistic, heart warming and thought provoking. They have great mysteries but you have to figure it out along with Detective Foyle and his crew. I am a great Agatha Christie, Clive Cussler, Iris Johanson and Patricia Cornwell fan. Foyle is every bit as great and truly shows a realistic WWII setting and the way life was and how people had to ration and do without. It showed the fragility of life during the war.
