With a top-notch supporting cast, complex and compassionate plotlines, and World War II period authenticity, Foyle's War is pure gold. Foyle is a Detective Chief Superintendent in Hastings, East Sussex, tasked with keeping the peace on the home front (although he'd prefer to be on active duty). Aiding him is D.S. Paul Milner, a former policeman who lost his leg in battle and returned to the force. The delightful Honeysuckle Weeks is Samantha Stewart, their driver and often their partner in crime solving. Series guest stars include Julian Ovenden, Robert Hardy, Charles Dance, Rosamund Pike, David Tennant, and James McAvoy.

"Like a gift from the gods." —NY Times

"A triumph from start to finish."—Wall Street Journal

"What makes the whole thing irresistible is Michael Kitchen's enthralling performance as Foyle…. [with] his reticence, sly humor and triumphant decency." —NPR, Fresh Air

"Foyle's investigations now frequently involve the black market, official corruption, illegal gambling, murders motivated by race and citizenship, the production of illegal, deadly 'hooch' (moonshine), embezzlement of government monies, germ warfare, culture clashes (with the stationed American troops), and military sabotage, as well as the standard civilian misdemeanors, felonies, and murders…. The mysteries merely serve as backdrops for telling stories about the war, and how civilians coped with new pressures and circumstances with the coming of this momentous, seismic change in their society. And they're not facile issues with pat, easy answers, either."—DVD Talk
