By Mr. Joe HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 11 Feb. 2005
Format: DVD
I'd previously rated Series 1 of FOYLE'S WAR at four stars. I'm happy to report, after finishing the Series 2 discs, that the ongoing British telly miniseries has graduated to five stars. It's superb, and I'm desolate that I must wait until 2005 for the release of Series 3 that's airing now in the UK. (Of course, if I move to England ... Nah, the wife would never go for it.)
Michael Kitchen is Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle, who's been ordered to remain at his post as homicide investigator for Hastings and its environs; he'd much rather be doing his bit for King and Empire fighting the Nazis across the Channel. Indeed, his son Andrew (Julian Ovenden) is a flying officer with the RAF. The two other series regulars are Samantha "Sam" Stewart (Honeysuckle Weeks), the army's Auxiliary Territorial Service enlistee assigned as his driver, and Paul Milner (Anthony Howell), Foyle's assistant inspector returned to home front duty after being wounded during the disastrous British invasion of Norway.
The delight to be found in the four episodes of Series 2 is the underlying complexity of each plot, the tip of which is a murder being investigated by Foyle and Milner. Yet, even as the layers of the onion are peeled away, the viewer is still surprised at the intricacy of the solution, most of which is unraveled in the depths of Foyle's mind and revealed to the audience at the end, and which has ramifications that ripple far beyond the simple presence of a local corpse.

Detective Chief Inspector Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) returns in the second season of Foyle's War, and the series remains as well-written and gripping as the first season was. Foyle is a British cop based in the southern part of England. It's Autumn, 1940. Britain, woefully unprepared, is at war with Germany. Foyle is a taciturn man, even sad. He has lost his wife and his only child has signed up with the Royal Air Force and is a fighter pilot. Foyle knows his son is going to be at high risk every time he takes off. Foyle desperately wanted to join up, too, but was told by his superiors that his talents are far better utilized where he is. He has reluctantly accepted that reality. Foyle is a dedicated, no-nonsense cop. He's respectful to authority and the rich, but he isn't intimidated. If a person has committed a crime, especially one which could damage Britain's war effort, Foyle will never let up until the crime is solved and justice -- by the book -- is done.

This series is effective for several reasons. The production values are high. A great deal of effort has been placed in evoking the look and style of England at the start of WWII. The cast which backs up Kitchen is first rate. These include the ongoing characters of Samantha Stewart played by Honeysuckle Weeks (a great name) as Foyle's driver. Stewart is an energetic, curious young woman, brave when she needs to be, who gradually earns Foyle's respect. Paul Milner is played by Anthony Howell. Milner, who lost a leg in the Norway campaign, is assigned to Foyle as his detective sergeant. Milner has to build back his confidence and Foyle can't give him much time to do so. Showing up in one-time roles this season are such accomplished actors as Alan Howard, Amanda Root, Nicholas Farrell, Corin Redgrave and Henry Goodman.

Foyles War is a DVD purchase that I will never regret, the acting is superb, and Michael Kitchen excels in every scene.
The storylines are so accurate of those difficult years in WW2,
I have every series and enjoy watching them over and again - Highly recommended, an excellent production.

So Much Owed By So Many To So Few', Why such a title for a review? After all we all know how indebted we are to the RAF, Home Guard and others for saving Britain in 1940. Foyle's War leaves us in no doubt about that. What I mean is that without this small cast of actors that have leant their time and talents to bring 'Foyle's War' to our screens, we might never have known as much about what life was like for civilians and RAF pilots in WW2. Though, just how many pilots actually went home to their families after surviving a dog fight with an ME109 remains a point in question. It's nice though to think it happened sometimes for those pilots whose families lived nearby. Snippets of information carefully included within the script and progress of it from one crime scenario to another are given to us like little gems. Many will secretly treasure these and hold them within for the rest of their days.

SAFE READING - NO SPOILERS

Be warned - for some reason quite difficult to explain, "Foyle's" (like "Spooks") is addictive. Watch it on television and buy one series to catch up on one you missed - often cheaper than one evening at the cinema - and you will buy another and another then find yourself sitting at home in the darkness watching them with friends, wives/husbands, sharing them with other members of the family and generally having hours of harmless fun. If you know Hastings, you might find yourself spotting places or discussing the plots with family and friends.

Anthony Horowitz is a great writer and script-writer who successfully combines the intricate plots with period action and a war-time experience but from the point of view of the civilians at home; often, the war is the unseen backdrop against which the stories unfold. Visually inventive and attractive, set with great attention to details in the forties, it depicts Spartan civilian life very effectively. The storylines show the effects of war on families at home and the underground racketeering which often accompanied acts of heroism in others. The actors are very convincing, ideal for the time period and seem to have a great chemistry on set, even if one does have to make allowances for Sergeant Milner's rapid and miraculous recovery from losing part of a limb.

Like life, some episodes are better than others, but they're well worth living through just for the fun of it. Recommended but, be warned. You will want the next one and need another book/CDshelf soon.

There are many other detailed reviews and sites so I will not repeat the information here. I will just recommend this and the other DVDs in the series. To save your money, consider buying the fuller sets initially or you will eventually buy the individual ones then wish you had thought about it!
