For those wondering what this is: It’s the continuation of the series, post war. Foyle is back on the job dealing with the lawlessness that plagued England as the country tried to rebuild. Still created by Anthony Horowitz and still starring Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks, this was filmed in 2009 and will air on ITV in England during April of 2010. If it is recieved as well as sets 1-5, then the series will continue to be produced. In an unprecidented move, ITV is attempting to make up for the terrible decision to cut the original series short, and end it abruptly. They are hoping it hasn’t lost it’s audience. The DVD will be released in August 2010.

Here is a synopsis of Series 7, (set 6).

It is June 1945 and while VE Day has been celebrated in Britain, the war continues elsewhere in the world. The immediate aftermath of war was not a time of jubilation and optimism, as had been expected. The country was exhausted and poverty-stricken, families torn apart and rations tighter than ever before. Like everyone else, Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle needs to feel his way in this new world as he faces some of his toughest challenges and gripping plots to date. Keen to retire, but bound to his old job by the steep rise in violent crime that swept the country, Foyle is thrust into the dangerous worlds of international conspiracy and execution, military racism and national betrayal.

The Russian House:

CS Foyle stumbles upon an international cover up, which, if exposed could bring down the British government, and reveal the War Office’s darkest secret yet.

Killing Time:

Foyle goes head to head against the might of the US army, as racial prejudices erupt when a local girl is found murdered, and the finger of suspicion points to a black GI at the US military base.

The Hide:

The newly retired Foyle battles to save a young man accused of high treason from the executioner’s noose, in a case that will shatter his personal world to the core…

This, and the preceding Foyle’s War series entries, are the very best of the best. The writing is compelling and true, the production very accurate and real, the history impeccable and the acting just magnificent. It is hard to over praise this series. Not only is everything done so beautifully, but the discs include sources for more information on the background of each episode. There is such a sense of reality in these episodes. If you value accurate history and want more of why or what happened, these writers and producers are for you. The characters are so believable and the background so true, that you feel as if you are part of the events as shown. It is not often you find a production with everything at such a level of accomplishment.

My husband and I love this intelligent and well acted series and are SOOO glad it is back. We own sets 1-5 and have enjoyed watching them many times (they are so well done you do not tire of watching). In fact, we will probably view them again in preparation for the new series on PBS. Much thanks to whomever was responsible for Foyle’s return!!

Plot developement is suburb and with Michael Kitchen playing Foyle, this series will never lose an audience! I hope M.K. agrees to a 7th, 8th, 9th series and more in these great stories. He is a true professional and so are the story lines.
