Episode Summary

EDIT

June, 1940. A conscientious objector dies in a police cell after being refused exemption from military service by Judge Lawrence Gascoigne, and after being beaten up by the police. Then a young boy evacuated from London and billeted on Judge Gascoigne's household dies in an explosion in the garden office where Gascoigne works, leading the police to suspect a revenge attack on the Judge. It also appears that Gascoigne strongly disapproves of his daughter's lover - he works at a mysterious "munitions factory" near the Judge's house, which turns out to be making coffins. Other suspects are the girlfriend and best friend of the conscientious objector who died... Getting nowhere, Foyle asks himself a startling question - what if the small boy killed by the bomb was actually the intended victim, and not the judge at all?
