Michael Kitchen returns to the screen as Detective Chief Superintendent Foyle, a man of scrupulous integrity who has survived the First World War, solved crime wherever it led him during the Second, and now finds himself called into duty at the risk of a possible Third. The Second World War may be over – but a new one is beginning, less explosive but no less deadly – a Cold War. Foyle finds himself drawn into complex webs of security and counter security where the loyalties of even those closest to him are brought into question as he joins, somewhat unwillingly at first, the ranks of MI5.

I have awaited Foyle's return on screen for quite some time, and the wait was definitely worth it. The episodes are well written, interesting and suspenseful. Foyle comes back from America and is immediately approached by MI5: Finally they want him to work for them.

The episodes are really exciting and dramatic. The war is over, and Foyle finds himself in the world of espionage, with the new threat of the Sovjet Union and its spies and schemes lurking around every corner. Foyle manages to use his forensic skills creatively in this new setting. I really like the way the series treats Foyle's balance between doing his job and his moral integrity. The dilemma between the dark and possibly immoral ways of MI5 and the notion of the "greater good" is a returning theme that the series deals with.

Michael Kitchen is as excellent as ever. There is such a great depth behind his subtle way of acting; a lot is being said behind his non-verbal demeanour. His "silent" style is what makes Foyle Foyle. Superb acting, in other words. Honeysuckle Weeks is also back; this time playing a more sombre and tired Sam, reflecting the hardship of the times, without omitting the occasional hilarious moments when she really brings joy and laughter to the episodes. Foyle's war is of course unthinkable without her.

I encountered some disappointments. First of all, I was a little unsatisfied that we did not get to see Foyle's hunt for senator Howard Paige in America, since I have looked forward to this ever since the episode where he got away (50 ships I belive it was), and since the last thing Foyle did in the last series was to go to America. I hope we might get to know more of this later, if they continue the series.

Good to see the Foyle team back in action with a new (post WW2) backdrop.
This is indeed labelled Series Seven, but this is a different series Seven to that listed on Wikipedia - it has the same episodes as listed by Wikipedia as belonging to Series Eight.
The episodes are:- "The Eternity Ring", "The Cage" and "Sunflower"

The way that Foyle returns from the USA and finds himself embroiled in an MI5 scenario that involves his former driver is very well scripted and worked well for us - this first script is by original 'Foyle' creator Anthony Horowitz, as is the last, but we found no fault with "The Cage" which is by David Kane - who also wrote the excellent episode "Killing Time" in a previous series.

Given that Horowitz has declared his intention to relinquish the series eventually, this is good news. Be wonderful if he were to decide to carry on, but failing that, a replacement who is skilled in the art is most welcome.
(whilst researching this we noticed that another previous series featured the episode "Broken Souls" by Michael Chaplin which we had enjoyed without noticing the writing credit or any change in quality at the time)
Good news indeed.
As with any good 'Foyle' episodes these revolve around the honesty of Foyle himself and his ability to see beyond the obvous. Portrayed immaculately as ever by the talented Michael Kitchen, with Honeysuckle Weeks as bright and smart as ever, in a very new context that is (if anything) -more- intriguing than the original series.
Strongly recommended to fans of Foyle.
Those who have yet to try the series are recommended to start at the very beginning, you have much to look forward to!

I wish Foyle's War would go on forever. In today's dross on TV a veritable masterpiece. Excellent writers, great cast and please do another series or two, or three, or four. We need this sort of class, especially home-grown. The Americans are very good but when we do something good it proves we are the best.

A really fantastic series which i can highly recommend. However i write this review for the hard of hearing. THERE ARE NO SUBTITLES which really ruins it for people like me who are pretty deaf. Bottom line is that if you do have hearing problems, then do not buy the dvd. Sad, because we deafies are really missing out on a superb product!

The first episode is as good as anything in Foyle's War. Anthony Horowitz apparently won't write any more of this series and suggested another writer take over. If this is correct, then let's hope the producers do exactly that - this opening episode is sensationally good. The eye-watering price of the dvd, however, is something else.

I will watch the whole Foyle series again and again with suitable gaps between so I have time to forget the details.

Another great series which was totally different from the past six. The new 'after war role' he played was very interesting and I do hope there is another series soon.
