This could have been a series too far with the apparent finality of VE Day but Anthony Horowitz has found a way of moving the story on and is ably supported by the cast.
Several of his old cases saw him involved with intelligence operatives so maybe he could have a place there in the future. There is room for dramatic tension because he often deplored their aims and methods. He is also off to America to complete some unfinished business, possibly with Henry Goodman's character in Fifty Ships?
This series has the usual top notch performance from Michael Kitchen ably supported by Honeysuckle Weeks and Anthony Howell, although Howell is rather under-used in these three stories.
Sam Stewart has to find a new role now she can no longer work with Foyle. Milner, now a police Inspector, is finding his feet and uncomfortable with his old boss. All three stories see Foyle still involved with new cases, bringing his humanity and knowledge of the nature of man to his investigations.
The Russian House and Killing Time, despite the need to build new roles for Sam and Milner, are up to the usual standard of all of the Foyle stories of the previous series.
But what marks this series out is The Hide, which is superb and outshines for me all of the Foyle stories so far, which is saying a great deal as I can't think of any that are not extremely good.
James Devereaux, a soldier returned from the war, is accused of treason and refuses to defend himself, seemingly intent on being hanged. It's impossible to explain just why it is so good without giving away the plot so all I will say is that Andrew Scott as Devereaux is mesmerising. He gives a wonderfully subtle performance and his scenes with Foyle are breathtakingly moving and very powerful.
If you are worried that this may be a series too far, don't be. If you have never seen Foyle's War but like well-made, well-acted, intelligent detective stories with a feel for time and place and depth of characterisation, give them a go and you won't be disappointed.
