Customer Review

on 19 July 2013
I have been a fan of Kitchen's quiet and thoughtful portrayal of Foyle through the war years. He is a fine actor with a rare capacity to deliver much with the minimum of spoken words.
I was sceptical about the merit of extending his activity into the post-war era. I need not have been concerned.
All the ingredients came together - intelligent plotline, fine re-creation of the period and a Britain suffering through austerity, portrayal of main characters consistent with what we know of them from the decade previous, but actually older and 'evolved' (notwithstanding some very human errors of judgement).
The unifying force is that of the restrained intellectual power of Foyle being applied to cleaning up other people's messes, as reluctantly as ever. It is great to see how themes and characters which were somewhat marginal in the wartime period have emerged in new and believable forms, at centre stage.
Now I want more of Cold War Foyle and those in his orbit. It is an era with great scope for intriguing plotlines and new challenges for the characters. With the capabilities of this show's writers and actors, it would not be a stretch.
