Overview

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:

  • "Plan of Attack" (2008) -- With the Hastings police force suffering attrition and low morale, Foyle comes out of retirement to probe the mysterious death of a cartographer from the Air Ministry.
  • "Broken Souls" -- The murder of an ambitious young doctor at the local psychiatric clinic produces no shortage of suspects among the staff and patients, many of whom still experience the war's horrors.
  • "All Clear" -- With final victory expected any day, Hastings looks ahead to a radically different postwar life. But the end comes too soon for two men, one a murder victim, the other an apparent suicide.

    Foyle's War DVDs are entertaining without vulgar profanity and sex. Refreshing! It portrays a decent man's plight of trying to keep the law during a period of war.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this series, and have the entire set to watch again and again. I love good English movies and enjoyed the entire set - I was sad when the stories ended. bgcollins

    This is the fifth in a series of DVDs about the Hasting Police Department whuch is in Southern England during World War II. By this DVD you have gotten to know the characters and the see the various problem Inspector Foyle has to deal with while trying to solve murders. Some of the problems involve dealing with top secrets that he is not allowed to know about and trying to get the local town people and by now the American GI's to help work with him to solve the various crimes that still go on inspite of the war.
