Michael Kitchen is Detective Chief Superintendent Foyle, a hard-working, policeman in Hastings during the Second World War.

As each series progresses through the War, the seventh and most recent finds, at one war s end, that a new war is beginning, one much darker and indistinct than the first; a war that doesn t officially exist a Cold War. Series 7 of this boxset has English subtitles

some of the crimes are a bit gory at times, but that doesn't detract from what is a tremendous pleasure to watch- I only hope that there are more episodes after series 8!
As an aside, noticing a few comments about subtitles- there are subtitles if you use Netflix to watch Foyle's War- but beware, the quality of these subtitles leave a lot to be desired!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely top notch! 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase
As a baby-boomer I usually avoid historical drama from this period since it is all too often devised to appeal to the nostalgic element of my generation. As one who regards the past as valuable experience rather than something to yearn for, I, therefore, ignored Foyle when it was first broadcast. The series was repeated recently on Australian television, and I watched a couple of them and realised what I had missed. I immediately ordered the boxed set and am halfway through enjoying them without the distraction of pointless and inane TV advertising.

This is drama of the highest order; beautifuly written, faultless acting from the superb Michael Kitchen and a phallanx of the best British character actors, and impeccable period 'feel'. The puzzles are reasonable quality, but that's not what this is really about. The effect of war on ordinary, and not-so ordinary, people is portrayed brilliantly and pulls no punches. Britain did not transform itself into a land of instant heroes, dedicated to democracy and stopping the Nazis. People were scared, not surprising seeing how fast the rest of Europe had fallen, and had no illusions about how poorly-prepared the country was for fighting. Small wonder that Churchill was terrified that they would want to negotiate with Hitler. Against this backdrop Foyle goes about his business of solving crime, seeking out truth, and trying to ensure justice. He is one of literature's great humanitarians, dedicated to doing what is obviously, and sometimes less obviously, right and fair. He is calm, organised, brave, and utterly unmoved by the machinations and posturings of the great and the good. His most potent weapon is a quiet, but ruthless and devastating logic backed by a profound sense of the ridiculous and natural humour and irony. This is a series that not only gives considerable enjoyment from its sheer quality - it makes you want to be a better person - not my usual reaction to television!

5.0 out of 5 stars Foyle's War Subtitles 20 July 2013
Like many people I have hearing problems. When " Foyle's War " first came out on DVD I was so impressed that I bought it straight away and sadly, found that there
were no subtitles when the package arrived at my home. I rarely buy anything that does not have subtitles. " Foyle's War " was the exception.
This is TV entertainment of the highest quality spoiled for me and I am sure, for many other people by of the lack of subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful series 25 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
This set arrived really quickly. It comes as 3 DVD cases in an outer sleeve. Each series is in a separate case. There are 25 DVDs and each episode is on a separate DVD.

This is a really good series. Excellent stories, believable characters and good acting. The episodes vary in length. Quality of picture is good. This is probably, in my opinion, one of the best British made detective series as it rambles on slowly building up the characterisations. I would recommend it as a detox after the Scandinavian police dramas.

Watched Series 7 DVD that has subtitles. I incline to agree that info re whether or not the product has English subtitles would help esp. for non-native speakers of English.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 16 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
I love this series - pure nostalgia. I am fascinated by this era in the 20th century. "Foyle's War" is so well written and the actors are brilliant. It is the best TV series ever and is the only boxed set I have ever bought.

Michael Kitchen gives a wonderful performance in this series as do so many of its Cast. I missed seeing this series on TV so grabbed the opportunity when is was made available as a boxed set. I first Saw Michael as a very young man in the 1980's Film "Das bunker"
This was a series that is a delight an viewable many times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very very good 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
I missed some of the Foyle's War programmes on TV so bought the box set.

Absolutely marvelous and I do have to wonder why they don't make more series on TV.

Michael Kitchen can do more with a look or glance than actors can do with lines and lines of dialogue.
