Tv Season Info

The eighth season of the British mystery finds the retired Foyle (Michael Kitchen), at the request of MI5, looking into the possible Soviet infiltration of Britain's atomic research. Complicating matters: Sam (Honeysuckle Weeks), his former driver, is now working for one of the suspects. Later, he investigates a Russian's death, which leads him to a military facility that could pose a threat to British intelligence; and is tasked with protecting a former Nazi officer-turned-MI5 informant from the Americans, who want him for his alleged involvement in a wartime atrocity. Sam, meanwhile, helps her new husband Adam (Daniel Weyman) achieve his goal of running for Parliament.

The shifting currents of the post-conflict era, and of Foyle's own position, make it a more intriguing, shadowy and complex series than before.

... continues and, ultimately, concludes the acclaimed and beloved historical mystery series from Britain in the years after the end of World War II.

Superb drama is historically accurate, dialogue-heavy.

They'll both satisfy long-time fans, and provide a good starting-point for new ones.

A perfect winter indulgence that should take some of the sting out of the fact that this terrific series -- once canceled, then resurrected several years ago -- is now really, truly one for the history books.

It is as pitch-perfect an ending to a great series as anyone could want.
