A new mystery-thriller series set on the southern English coast against the backdrop of World War II. Michael Kitchen (The World Is Not Enough) stars as detective Christopher Foyle, who reluctantly sits out the war fighting evil on the home front.
Episode One: The German Woman At a time when German nationals are being interned in British camps, the beautiful Austrian wife of a local magistrate is resented by locals. When she is found murdered, with a swastika painted on a nearby tree, Foyle realizes the seemingly peaceful Sussex town harbors any number of suspects.
Episode Two: The White Feather The arrest of a young girl on a sabotage charge brings Foyle into contact with a group of English Nazi sympathizers. Shots are fired at the group’s charismatic leader, but it is the hotel owner who dies. Foyle investigates the murder and uncovers a plot to smuggle a vitally important letter to the enemy. Featuring guest star Charles Dance (Gosford Park).
Episode Three: A Lesson in Murder A conscientious objector dies in police custody, setting in motion a series of deaths that Foyle investigates. When Foyle has pieced together the truth, the entry of Italy into the war engulfs a close friend in tragedy.
Episode Four: Eagle Day In the course of investigating a murder, Foyle uncovers a plot to steal art treasures being moved from the local museum to Wales for safekeeping. Foyle’s son, Andrew, meanwhile, qualifies as a pilot and flies his first mission but is accused of passing top secret information to the enemy.
