Show Summary

Welcome to the Foyle's War guide at TV.com.

Touted as the new Inspector Morse, this ITV detective show stars Michael Kitchen as a police inspector frustrated at being stuck at home investigating provincial crimes during the second world war.

Honeysuckle Weeks is an inspired choice as Foyle's sidekick, a clergyman's daughter posted from the Women's Royal Army Corps to serve as his driver, and she plays the part with an admirable period charm.

Foyle's War opened in southern England in the year 1940 - which may seem a strangely remote period in which to place a new detective, but the setting turned out to be a means of adding moral and dramatic depth to the storylines. The series covered the war years, and eventually saw Foyle recruited by MI5 in the aftermath of the war.

Foyle's War was a Greenlit production for ITV. The eighth series was an Eleventh Hour production for ITV.
