DCS Christopher Foyle investigates wartime crimes in the English coastal town of Hastings. 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. Plan of attack: April 1944. DS Milner's investigation of a transportation fraud sets in motion a series of events that brings Foyle back to the force. As Hastings hosts an ecumenical conference on the morality of continued Allied bombing, Foyle probes the suspicious death of a young cartographer from the Air Ministry office. Broken souls: October 1944. At a psychiatric clinic treating troubled soldiers, the investigation of a doctor's murder turns up no shortage of suspects among the patients and staff. It also complicates Foyle's friendship with Dr. Josef Novak, the Polish refugee who heads the clinic. All clear: May 1945. As all of Britain awaits the formal announcement of the war's end, Foyle reluctantly joins a committee preparing to keep public order during the celebration to come. But the end comes too soon for two men-- one a stabbing victim, the other an apparent suicide.

Michael Kitchen never disappoints. He's the type of actor that gives you a performance that, at its end, you have forgotten that you were only watching a movie and no longer are living during WWII. Number one series ever.

You can see and hear this series is related to Midsomer Murders, and I like Foyle better. Michael Kitchen is perfect as a highly skilled, but sad detective. This series does a fine job of presenting the issues of civilian communities struggling with War.

Excellently produced as always. This series captures the sense of anticipation as WWII draws to a close (a champagne bottle from the evidence room mysteriously loses its label). Foyle comes out of retirement after the current DCS is accidentally killed (Sargent Milner was the intended victim). Sam does a graceful job with a difficult role of what employed women were faced with after their wartime employment was wrapping up. Also a good exploration of PTSD and how it affects four of the returning veterans.

Even after England winning WWII against Germany, the ghosts, shock & consequences of WWII continues to haunt England today.
The steep price of the victory, the immediate effects of the WAR in every family & little village in England, made this film very taunting to watch.
Foyle's war presents the realistic everyday life under war & the crimes committed in the name of "victory".
