5.0 out of 5 stars Foyle's War serie 2,
We like the series very much.
It was a pity that the subtitling was not available, but the characters pronunciation is so clear that we didn't really miss it.
We are Dutch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent,
Superb script, and the acting of Michael Kitchen in particular in the lead role, is effortlessly excellent. Flalessly support by the performances of Anthony Howell and Honeysuckle Weeks. If you're a devotee of 1940's nostalgia, each episode is two hours of bliss! Thoroughly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent second series of this marvellous wartime detective drama,
FOYLES WAR SERIES TWO - COMPLETE R2 DVD 2003
FOYLE'S WAR has got to be one of the best of the period detectives series produced for British television, certainly during the last few years, and to my mind ranks along side pre-war Poirot and post-war Inspector Gently. The period drama is something that British producers do exceedingly well and Foyle is no exception. I only managed to catch a couple of episodes of the first four series and so purchased the DVDs as soon as they were released and have just re-visited the whole run up to date over a couple of weeks. I think they are even more impressive when all 25 episodes are viewed together.
Michael Kitchen, Anthony Howell and Honeysuckle Weeks plus the other regular members of the cast are perfect castings and the series has attracted the cream of British television actors. The Anthony Horowitz scripts are excellent and the background history well researched and carefully filmed to prevent unnecessary glaring continuity errors, locations, dress and military uniforms all spot on.
The uniquely covers not just with mundane police affairs but with those special issues of the war years, in FIFTY SHIPS Foyle's determined investigation of a murder puts at risk the donation of American Aid and the crucial start of the Lend-Lease in the war. WAR GAMES sees divided loyalties lead to revenge and murder when a businessman puts profits before principles in a secret pact with the Nazis. In AMONG THE FEW, the percarious life style of RAF pilots and their girlfriends who live fast and die young are spotlighted in a story of greed and passion where Foyle finds appearances are deceptive. THE FUNK HOLE sees Foyle himself accused of a serious offense, which complicates his hunt for a murderer at a hotel catering for those trying to avaoid the dangers of war and other more sinister characters.
Anybody who has not viewed this series and likes detective or period dramas should watch them, preferably in chronological order, although each is a stand alone story. A must for the collection of any crime or detective fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Foyle's War,
This series is beautifully put together, with really good story lines, all about a policeman during the second world war in Hastings. The sets are all authentic, and the plots are really realistic. This is T.V. at its best
5.0 out of 5 stars Great to have on DVD,
I'd missed the series on TV and a friend recommended it. So it is great to have it on DVD without any commercials. Mostly very well researched (one glitch I noticed was a naval officer with just a moustache and not a beard, which would never be allowed!). The characters are good and it is a quality production.
