Riveting mysteries set against the backdrop of World War II history
"A triumph from start to finish" --The Wall Street Journal

Also starring Anthony Howell and Honeysuckle Weeks. Guest stars include Julian Ovenden, Corin Redgrave, Robert Hardy, Charles Dance, Michael Jayston, Rosamund Pike, Amanda Root, James Wilby, and James McAvoy.
Includes all episodes from Foyle’s War Sets 1–5.
DVD SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE exclusive interviews with series writer and creator Anthony Horowitz and stars Anthony Howell and Honeysuckle Weeks, making-of documentaries, production notes, historical backgrounds, cast reflections, notes on a real-life Foyle, photo gallery, and cast filmographies.

The actor who plays Foyle, Michael Kitchen, is a terrific actor. The stories are absorbing - my wife and I were entertained and interested.Published 8 months ago by Hootypoot

|Closed Captioning versus Subtitles for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired||
According to Acorn media's website. the 1-5 set is close-captioned which means it will NOT show captions if run thru an HDMI cable. It will show the captions if run thru composite or S-video cables and the audio is run thru the red & white RCA cables.

|Foyle's boxed set||
I understand that there are three new episodes covering VE Day to VJ day being shown either late 2009 or 2010 in the UK. Does anyone know when they will be issued on a Region 1 DVD? I found out that AMAZON.com will notify you when they are available.
