Foyle's War is back! In the first series since 2010 Michael Kitchen returns as the enigmatic DCS Foyle in ITV’s hugely popular and successful Foyle’s War, but this time he has a new and exciting role working for Secret British Intelligence.....
The war is over – but a new one is beginning, less explosive but no less deadly – a Cold War. Foyle finds himself drawn into complex webs of security and counter security where the loyalties of even those closest to him are brought into question.
“You can always depend on Foyle’s War’ – and writer Anthony Horowitz – to tell a good story and the first in a much anticipated new series of the period detective drama does not disappoint. … Cue an enthralling new chapter in the career of television’s most lip-curlingly skeptical DCI.” – The Observer
“It’s a lot of fun, gripping without taking itself too seriously – the cold war with a twinkle. And the Big Upheaval – of place, time, enemy, employer – isn’t just pulled off, it actually breathes new life into Foyle’s War.” - The Guardian
“What makes the return of Foyle’s War such a joy, is not the narrative, but the mood – the pith of the writing, the depth of the detail of the brewing Cold War, and above all the richness of the performances… The whole thing is like having a conversation over a civilised dinner with a clever friend. His absence left a hole in the Sunday night schedules: it is lovely to have him back.” - The Telegraph
“Having last seen Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) sailing off to America, supposedly forever, there needed to be quite a lot of what is known in the script trade as Job Club, that is, lifeless scenes in which various characters are found and hired so the old gang can get back together again for the rest of the series. Fortunately, two hours provided ample time for that, alongside a toothsome mystery involving atomic secrets and ethically challenged scientists.” - Daily Express
“As so often, the greatest fun was discovering what Michael Kitchen might do with Foyle’s next line. Refusing to disappoint, he found the iambic pentameter in ‘Blessing being the only person implicated in the so-called eternity ring.’ What a trooper!” - The Times
