A very minor criticism,
This review is from: Foyle's War - Series 6 [DVD] (DVD)
An excellent collection of stories with the usual close attention to historical detail. However as seems to be usual in many historical series the producers do not trouble to get ecclesiastical detail right. Milner's child seems to have been baptised according to the Alternative Service Book which was not issued until 1980, the Prayer Book of 1662 -or perhaps that of 1928 - was what would have been used.

I have the same minor gripe about this richly enjoyable series. The German Roman Catholic priest in charge of an Anglican parish church (in Plan of Attack) seems to me a gross solecism, unless anyone knows better. Sometimes the dialogue intrudes idioms which belong to the period when the series was made rather than when it was set (and having Foyle utter 'with regards to' instead of 'with regard to' in The Hide made me shudder). Also in The Hide, the house in Brighton where the girl is strangled has its front door knob fixed with what look very like Pozidriv screws.
