Excellent detective series in a fascinating settingBy Stephen Dawson from London , 09 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Michael Kitchen plays Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle in the south-coast town of Hastings in May 1940. Foyle is stuck investigating murders when he would rather be more active in the war against Germany.
In The German Woman, we are introduced to Foyle, his driver Sam (Honeysuckle Weeks), and Detective Sergeant Milner (Anthony Howell). Foyle investigates the killing of a German woman, a case which brings out the fierce anti-German sentiment of the British people as German troops march across mainland Europe.
In The White Feather, as a German invasion of England is expected any day, and the boats on the south coast withdraw the Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk, Foyle investigates a girl's act of sabotage and the suspicious death of a hotel keeper during the visit to the hotel of a pro-Hitler and violently anti-semitic group known as the Friday Club.
Filmed in London and the South Coast, the acting, sets and plots are all excellent: adding the historic elements of a very troubled time, often seen from a slightly different angle, makes for enthralling viewing.

Addictive!By a customer from Beddington , 27 Dec 2011Michael Kitchen is absolutely spellbinding as Foyle. I love watching and can't wait to catch up on all the episodes.
Foyle's War - The German WomanBy Fakirkbairn (10 reviews) from Hertford , 09 Nov 2010I enjoyed watching this DVD. The storyline was excellent and all the actors portrayed the characters very well. The sets portrayed very realistically what this country was like during the Second World War.
Absolutely BrilliantBy a customer from Sussex , 08 Jun 2010An absolutely brilliant series. Foyle is a wonderful invention and Michael Kitchen brings him masterfully to life. Faultlessly. Honeysuckle Weeks as Sam is a splendid foil (pardon the pun) and the period setting is beyond reproach. Great television.
