Director on Foyle's War
Involved in the early stages of "Foyle's War", Jeremy Silberston helped to create the look and feel of the period detective drama. Silberston also helped to develop "Midsomer Murders", also with Anthony Horowitz. In a 2002 interview, Silberston said "Anthony Horowitz and I developed Midsomer Murders together so he asked me to read the script of Foyle's War quite early on. I felt it had a basis in reality that gave it interest and set it apart from other detective shows. The stories, the characters and the casting made it a very attractive project." Silberston died in 2006. "Casualties of War", a episode of "Foyle's War", is dedicated to his memory.moreless

When the real pilot took the Spitfire back to Duxford, he gave us an impromptu air display, complete with loop the loops. It was glorious and everyone was hugely moved.
