We are now in the murky post- war world of Anglo -Soviet relations, where all is not what it seems and the rules of the new Great Game are being defined.

In episode I, Foyle, returning home from America, is recruited by the singular Miss Pierce [ looking like a latter day Lotte Lenya in her role as Rosa Kelbb] to work for MI5 and expose a Soviet Spy ring in London among physicists, who are horrified by the moral implications of their own invention: the nuclear bomb.

Episode II deals with Foyle's discovery of a facility where Soviet codes are intercepted but which is in fact used in a much more sinister capacity. This time the lines are drawn between Soviet sympathizers, the upholders of Britain's ruling class, and fine people like Foyle who truly believe in the democratic process of justice.

The last episode, in which MI5 is discovered protecting a high ranking SS officer useful in exposing Soviet methods of espionage, carries the most weight in its moral and ethical implications, prompting Foyle to ask the question, 'How do our methods and intentions differ from those of the Nazis?'

Sam, now all grown up and married, joins Foyle in his investigations, bringing her own sunny charm to a very dark period in history.

The sets are bleak, the mood depressive, the people poor and many are uncertain that they are still on the side of right despite their disgust of Stalin's methods. Very Interesting and still cheaper than the price of a movie ticket.

Is the new series 8 worth the price of $7.99 per episode (gulp!). Yep! I'm hoping we see a series 9 in the not to distant future. Highly recommend!

I have loved each and every season of this show. This is a beautiful and seamless transition into post World War II England. The history, the mystery, the acting, the beauty and attention to detail of the era all remain equally as great. Is it worth $7.99 per episode? For me, yes!!! I enjoyed it much more than many movies I have gone to a theater to see and paid more to watch. So glad they are making new episodes. Can't wait for next season. On another note all of these episodes which are from the ITV version are roughly an hour and 20 minutes. I did not realize in the states they were cutting 20 minutes per episode from the shows before showing them on PBS. While I obviously did not miss the 20 minutes per episode when I fell in love with series on PBS, this is so much greater and richer and entertaining to see the ENTIRE story. Going back over the next months to watch them all in the original version. This show is simply one of my favorites ever.

If you are a fan of the show (and you must be to be watching season 8) you already know why this show is so amazing! As always D.C.S Foyle's quiet cool manner is brought to life by the superb acting of Michael Kitchen. All the cast is first rate and thoroughly enjoyable series. You will not be disappointed.

Sweden has Kurt Wallander, and a very good man indeed. However, DCI Foyle is a man you would follow into hell without a backward glance. Michael Kitchen brings so much character to this role, it reminds you what the word means. And Honeysuckle Weeks is absolutely wonderful. Well done, all 'round.

Foyle's War is one of the better English series on PBS. Foyle reminds me of Columbo. Always knows more then you think.

Have loved all of the FW series and have been waiting with bated breath for this, the latest, to arrive.
Imho, FW gets better and better and the way the producers have segued from WW2 to post war England is not only fascinating historically accurate.
The British, in some ways, seemed to go from the frying pan to the fire after the war----expecting life to swing back to the way it was before Hitler; sadly, things went haywire and Foyle's War portrays the social and political upheaval of those days.
I particularly enjoy that the producers have inculcated the SOE in the stories. Clearly, the Hilda Pierce character is modeled after Vera Atkins whose biography--- along with those of other SOE agents---- I happen to have been reading over the past year or so.
I hope there will be a Season 10 and more.

My husband and I enjoy Foyle's War each evening. It will be a sad day for us when the series is completed. Michael Kitchen is excellent in the role and we love Honeysuckle Weeks.
