No Whodunnit but The-guy-with-the-car-dunnit
on 30 August 2015
All right, here's a major spoiler alert, so continue at your own peril. I have watched all the episodes set during the war (the numbering of the series/seasons has recently been changed but it was several seasons). In every single case, the murderer is the only wealthy person around, easily spotted by the fact that he owns the only private car in the episode. Once you've grasped that simple principle, you have the case solved in under ten minutes. Just watch for that one car and you have your culprit. There is one exception where a poor guy did it, but wouldn't you know it, while investigating, Foyle finds that the rich people also have broken the law.
Sorry, guys, this is super stupid. First, the world is more complex than "the rich are always the guilty ones". Second, it simply takes all the fun out of the guesswork.
I don't know about the later seasons set after the war, but if you are into trying to figure out the mystery while watching, don't bother with the early ones. They are not Whodunnits, they are The-guy-with-the-car-dunnits
