These are new episodes, no matter what ANYONE says!,
This review is from: Foyle's War - Series 6 [DVD] (DVD)
Despite the product description, the assertions of some other reviewers, and yes, despite even the testimony of an amazon,co.uk representative, this box set undoubtedly contains the three new (2010) episodes of Foyle's War, the last of which will be aired the day before the set is released.
The three episodes which were aired in 2008 indeed comprised the sixth series of Foyle's War, but for DVD purposes those were called the "fifth series" (as two earlier, abbreviated seasons were combined in one DVD set) and that set has been available since April 2008, just after those episodes were aired.
To those in doubt, I will make the following three points:
1) As another reviewer pointed out, this set is advertised on the Acorn Media website, where the description clearly states that the episodes are set after V-E day (i.e., the 2010 episodes).
2) Note that the rating on this box set is 12, which means that none of the episodes contained in it has a stricter rating than 12. The episode "Broken Souls" from the 2008 season is rated 15-- as, indeed, is the box set that contains it.
3) If the naysayers are correct, then the 2010 episodes are not yet available on DVD, and apparently won't be for a number of months (since it cannot even be pre-ordered yet). Yet on the American amazon.com site, there is an item called "Foyle's War-- Set 6" which will be released on June 1 (not even six weeks away) containing the 2010 episodes, as the product description asserts. Are we to believe that this fine British program will be released on DVD in the United States before it is available in the UK itself? Hardly a likely scenario.
I'd be interested to hear responses to these points from anyone who thinks I'm incorrect.
