  • Farmers and POWs take center stage

    9.5
    This episode takes place in April 1941. The focus was on the workers sent to help farmers and POWs.



    Hugh Jackson was a farmer with two land girls, Rose and Joan, helping with his potato fields. He was on some sort of board and got a tractor before his neighbor Mr. Curling. Jackson also got to exclude his favorite place, Poppy Field, from being farmed. Hugh and Joan were seen arguing in a field.



    That night, Rose was visited by Jackson's son Tom. Curling was out in the fields, hunting rabbits. Hugh was out drinking heavily in Poppy Field. A German plane crashes nearby. One crew member had his chute sabotaged and fell to his death. The other two were captured. Hugh was found dead in his house by an apparent suicide.



    Christopher Foyle investigates the death. Was it a suicide? Who would have wanted Hugh Jackson dead? As usual, nothing is what it appears to be. Somehow, the answer lies within the POW camp. Foyle and Milner uncover the truth in the end.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Foyle: Where do you get your opinion of men?
      Barbara Hicks: Experience.

    • Cornwall: I've always tried to see the best in people, and we've had good results with the prisoners. Quite a number have already opened up to us. You see, I spent a year at university in Heidelberg before the war. I always found the Germans to be a civilized and gracious race.
      Foyle: Ah. You ever played football against them?
      Cornwall: Football? No, cricket's my game. There's a disappointing dearth of cricket pitches in Heidelberg.

    • Barbara Hicks: Why are so sure it was me he described?
      Foyle: Well, red jacket, blonde hair, very attractive.

    • Barbara Hicks: If it was a simple suicide, why is someone as lofty as yourself spending so much time on it?
