Foyle's War has been described by The Wall Street Journal as "a triumph from start to finish." Set along the South Coast of England in the 1940s, Foyle's War stars Michael Kitchen as Christopher Foyle, the straightforward sleuth who fights his own battles on the home front while war rages across Europe.
The quietly enigmatic Foyle would much rather serve his country in the armed forces, but his superiors deem him indispensable for combating the heightening anarchy along England's south coast, where the German army is expected any day. Uncertainty, espionage, bombs and internment are the new facts of life for Foyle and those around him. Yet sometimes they merge with an old one of affluent England -- murder.
