Tv Season Info

Set during the early days of World War II, Season 1 of the mystery series opens with Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen), a veteran of World War I, returning to work in Hastings, along Britain's southern coast, after being rebuffed in his effort to transfer to the War Department. D ue to a shortage of male police officers, young Samantha "Sam" Stewart (Honeysuckle Weeks) is transferred from the Mechanised Transport Corps to serve as his driver, though her talents stretch far beyond steering; and Sgt. Paul Milner (Anthony Howell), a r ecent war veteran seriously injured during Britain's ill-fated Norway campaign, soon assists him . Among the cases he tackles: the murder of the German wife of a local magistrate; the slaying of a hotel owner at a gathering organized by a fascist sympathizer; the death of a conscientious objector while in police custody; and the slaying of a local lorry driver.

Luckily, the people you would least like to encounter in real life make fantastic TV.

This is quality, smart stuff -- plot points hinge on citizenship classifications, ration coupons, the location of safe houses. It requires that viewers watch carefully, and pay attention to details.

Audience Reviews for Foyle's War: Season 1

  • May 03, 2020
    I was looking for highly rated British crime dramas and saw the high ratings for this series. I really like that it is set in WWII. It is about a detective solving domestic crimes with the war in progress. It is an older style of cinematography so I had to patiently wait to be drawn into the story. It didn't take long and I have found this series to be very entertaining. It is on Acorn TV so there are four 1.5 hour shows in the first series.

    Michael Kitchen is fantastic and draws you in with his somehow calculating, but warm demeanor. Anthony Howell and Honeysuckle Weeks compliment Kitchen superbly and, as a huge Downton Abbey fan, it is a real treat to see Julian Ovenden on screen who I'm hoping plays a bigger role in future seasons.
