  • Exceedingly good episode, the best of this season.

    10
    Not that the rest of the season has been bad, it hasn't, it's been quite good in fact, but this is definitely the best episode of the season, perhaps of the show. Beautifully acted and written, this is not so much as a whodunit as Folye's War episodes tend not to be, but an intriguing character and societal study. One the one hand there is the character study side. Excellent performances all around and great dialouge and story telling provide intriguing insights into a wealthy family and their dubious past, Foyle and is future and Sam. This is mixed in with the societal aspect. Instead of making a rather pro-British show, as in we won, yeah go us, the show is in fact very critical of Great Britain and its actions after the war. It asks very pointed questions about what development and inprovement really is and how much we have sacrificed. What are these sacrifices getting everyone? Despite perhaps not being exactly a nail bitter, the episode did a wonderful job of pulling us along, with enough turns to keep us at least mildly surprised. A very well made episode, rather dark yet bitterly funny.moreless
  • Why is Foyle suddenly so interested in clearing the name of a man accused of treason - especially as the man himself seems to want to die?

    "Making a virtue of necessity" may have been the guiding motive behind this most recent series, aired two years after ITV stupidly announced that it was to be axed for good - and after episodes at that time which carefully arranged to bring the show to a logical close - but one has to say that virtue is indeed present, and in abundance. In fact, in terms of emotional power, this revived series of "Foyle's War" may be the finest in the show's entire history, and this concluding episode the very best one. Certainly, the dynamite revelation of Foyle's mysterious motive for clearing the name of a young man accused of treason is a high point in ITV drama, and most beautifully played by Michael Kitchen.moreless

    • The episode ends with Foyle setting off for America, as he has mentioned wanting to do throughout the series. He has only cryptically offered "unfinished business" as his reason. Long-term devotees of Foyle's War, however, will surely assume that his aim is finally to arrest the American millionaire - and murderer - who got away at the end of the early episode, "Fifty Ships".
