Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen), the sober yet heartening hero of the exemplary new mystery series Foyle's War, isn't so much a reserved Englishman as he is an all-around minimalist. He might not approve of lavish praise, but he's a man used to spinning gold from disappointment. Stuck investigating murders while lesser colleagues are given key intelligence posts to fight Hitler in 1940, a restless Foyle is faced with the brutal killing of a German woman in a coastal village. Was it misplaced revenge against all of Germany that did her in, a controversial family trust, or something else--something worse? While Foyle deliberates and stews in career frustration, he has a paradoxical, revivifying effect on several human casualties of war and on justice itself. A fine mystery and a welcome detective hero. --Tom KeoghFrom the Back Cover:
Michael Kitchen stars as Detective Chief Inspector Christopher Foyle in this original PBS Masterpiece Theatre series. Set in the beautiful southern English countryside amid the disorder and danger of World War II, Foyle's War takes place far from the glory of the front. His is an ordinary struggle-against everyday evil-in extraordinarily dangerous times. At a time when German nationals are being interned in British camps, the beautiful Austrian wife of a local magistrate is resented by locals. When she is found murdered, a swastika painted on a nearby tree, Foyle realizes the seemingly peaceful Sussex town harbors any number of suspects. DVD SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE exclusive interview with series writer and creator Anthony Horowitz, production notes, cast filmographies and scene index.
