Foyle's Back!


At long last, one of my favourite television series returns on Sunday, 11 April on ITV (20:00).  Any other fans out there?  I think that Foyle's War is one of the best TV series made in a long while: entertaining, provocative, atmospheric, supremely well acted and with a mystery thrown in.  When I was reading interwar novels a few years ago, a lot of what I learnt through fiction was confirmed and expounded upon in this series.  I learnt a lot about Britain in the World Wars through novels and this excellent programme.  A bonus is that it is set in Hastings, a place I know and love.  I had great fun searching out Foyle's home and other locations in Hastings.  I do hope they'll commission another series...  it is definitely worthy.  For more on Foyle and pictures of Hastings, visit this entertaining site: http://www.foyleswar.com/

One of my favourite series. I was pleased to hear that they were resurrecting Foyle in peacetime after the rushed ending of the previous series. Not sure how long we'll have to wait for it here in Australia though.

I LOVE Foyle's War! I even named a pair of socks that I knit 'Honeysuckle Weeks Retro Rib' as they were knit during a season of that wonderful show.
