First of all I like to say how very disappointed with these companies that don't put subtitles on ALL films I this day and age. I'm a profoundly Deaf person who I depend on Subtitles alot. I got these DVD for an elderly lady who fought in the War she didn't need the subtitles but she lent them to me and my Mother but we were so Disappointed that there were NO SUBTITLES. SHAME ON YOU.

I too have a hearing loss (as do 1 in 6 of the population) and cannot manage without subtitles. I was hoping to buy the Foyle's War DVD set, but without subtitles it would just be a waste of money

I have enjoyed watching the sporadic episodes on TV and am especially grateful for the subtitles. I was about to purchase the entire boxed series but will not now do so simply because it will be a waste of money as I will inevitably miss a lot of the dialogue. If the subtitles are ever embedded on the series I will definitely buy them.....

Is it even legal in the days of equal opportunity to produce a modern drama without subtitles? And why would you do it? We have all the old series, which are now useless to my husband who can not hear well enough to follow the intricacies of the plots. So we have to watch old reruns peppered with endless ads on commercial TV when available in spite of having the series on our shelves!

One way around the lack of subtitles from this boxset is to order the Foyles War boxset series 1-6 from
Foyle's War: The Homefront Files, Sets 1-6 which has a price tag of $66-$75
(expect Amazon to add VAT if shipped from USA to UK)
It is in NTSC (NOT PAL) but each series has Closed Caption which is the American method to add subtitles.
Format: Anamorphic, Closed-captioned, Color, NTSC, Widescreen
Series 7 and 8 have subtitles and can be purchased from
Not all DVD standalone players or TV sets play NTSC. But a PC DVD player set to region 1 should be able to play NTSC and hopefully also the closed-captions.

I did contact Acorn Media. They were quite disinterested and said they had no intention of reissuing those series without subtitles. The last 2 series do have them.
