"Foyle's War" is one of the few shows I look forward to.
This mystery is a skillful mix of history, mystery, English culture, and American culture. The World War II setting gives a rich pallet of choices to set the mysteries for detective Foyle. Places, people, and incidents of the time become intertwined in the series. Fans who like history will relish most depictions.
The characters are well developed a portrayed by the actors. Foyle appears stoic and banal, but as stories develop his character comes out subtle ways. The mysteries are of the classic style. No gadgets and gratuitous action sequences find their way into these episodes. The analysis is logical and cerebral.
The series is well done and well worth a look by both mystery and non-mystery fans.
