Editorial Reviews

One man fights his own battle against everyday evil--in extraordinarily dangerous times

"Outstanding" --The New York Times

Returning for a three-episode encore, this enormously popular, award-winning mystery series stars Michael Kitchen (Out of Africa) as Detective Chief Inspector Christopher Foyle, a police investigator in the British coastal community of Hastings. In the immediate aftermath of World War II, Foyle finds his longed-for retirement interrupted by cases involving international intrigue, military racism, and an accused traitor all too willing to go to the gallows.

Also starring Honeysuckle Weeks and Anthony Howell, and featuring Max Brown, Christopher Good, Tim Pigott-Smith, Charlotte Riley, Sam Spruell, Andrew Scott, David Yelland, and Anastasia Hille.

THE MYSTERIES
THE RUSSIAN HOUSE--The escape of a Russian POW sets off a chain of events that leads to murder and rekindles a conflict between Foyle and his former subordinate.
KILLING TIME--With African American GIs waiting to return Stateside, racial tension, jealousy, and greed combine to create a potentially explosive situation in Hastings.
THE HIDE--As DI Milner investigates the murder of a young woman in Brighton, Foyle probes the motives of an accused traitor who refuses to defend himself.

For those wondering what this is: It's the continuation of the series, post war. Foyle is back on the job dealing with the lawlessness that plagued England as the country tried to rebuild. Still created by Anthony Horowitz and still starring Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks, this was filmed in 2009 and will air on ITV in England during April of 2010. If it is recieved as well as sets 1-5, then the series will continue to be produced. In an unprecidented move, ITV is attempting to make up for the terrible decision to cut the original series short, and end it abruptly. They are hoping it hasn't lost it's audience. The DVD will be released in August 2010.

Here is a synopsis of Series 7, (set 6).

It is June 1945 and while VE Day has been celebrated in Britain, the war continues elsewhere in the world. The immediate aftermath of war was not a time of jubilation and optimism, as had been expected. The country was exhausted and poverty-stricken, families torn apart and rations tighter than ever before. Like everyone else, Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle needs to feel his way in this new world as he faces some of his toughest challenges and gripping plots to date. Keen to retire, but bound to his old job by the steep rise in violent crime that swept the country, Foyle is thrust into the dangerous worlds of international conspiracy and execution, military racism and national betrayal.

The Russian House:
CS Foyle stumbles upon an international cover up, which, if exposed could bring down the British government, and reveal the War Office's darkest secret yet.

This, and the preceding Foyle's War series entries, are the very best of the best. The writing is compelling and true, the production very accurate and real, the history impeccable and the acting just magnificent. It is hard to over praise this series. Not only is everything done so beautifully, but the discs include sources for more information on the background of each episode. There is such a sense of reality in these episodes. If you value accurate history and want more of why or what happened, these writers and producers are for you. The characters are so believable and the background so true, that you feel as if you are part of the events as shown. It is not often you find a production with everything at such a level of accomplishment.

Here is a brief synopsis from the Acorn Media UK site.

Product Description
Michael Kitchen stars as the thoughtful and enigmatic Detective Chief Superintendent Foyle.

The war is over in Britain and Foyle, among many others, must find his way in this new world. His hopes of retirement are dashed due to a shortage of senior men and he finds himself investigating international conspiracy, betrayal and military racism.

This boxed set contains:
The Russian House
Killing Time
The Hide

Episode 1: The Russian House, by Anthony Horowitz
DCS Foyle stumbles upon an international cover up, which, if exposed could bring down the British government, and reveal the War Office's darkest secret yet.

Episode 2: Killing Time, by David Kane
Foyle goes head to head against the might of the US army, as racial prejudices erupt when a local girl is found murdered, and the finger of suspicion points to a black GI at the US military base.

Episode 3: The Hide
The newly retired Foyle battles to save a young man accused of high treason from the executioner's noose, in a case that will shatter his personal world to the core...

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If Sherlock Holmes can be brought back from death at the Reichenbach Falls, then Christopher Foyle can certainly be recalled from permanent retirement at the Hastings Police. And fortunately for viewers, British ITV has had the good judgment to bring such a scenario to fruition. As far as this viewer is concerned, Foyle, Sam, and Milner--such wonderful characters, they seem like old friends--can go on solving mysteries as long as possible, not only in the period immediately after the war but also into the Cold War, the beginnings of which are intimated in "The Russian House."

As usual, the mysteries are absorbing. I especially enjoyed watching the low-key, snail's-crawl 'car chase' in the first episode; the slowness of the pace heightened the suspense even more than would the customary high-speed television cliche of cars careening through the streets in wrong-way traffic.

In addition to being a superlative detective series, "Foyle's War" continues to act as a mirror of history. It is fascinating to discover some of the War's dirty secrets that had been first hidden and then, conveniently, forgotten, such as the one that serves as the background for "The Russian House." The best thing about the continuation of the series, however, is its concentration on a period of history that is so often neglected--the depiction of what it was like to live in Britain just after the war, with rationing, food shortages, bomb-damage, displaced persons. Especially compelling is its portrayal of the men and women who had given their hearts' blood to service for so many years, dreaming that there was no place like Home, and then upon returning sometimes discovering that Home had no place for them.

I, too, have had some difficulty understanding all the dialogue. We are so sorry that there is no closed captioning available on the DVDs.
