Michael Kitchen stars as the thoughtful, enigmatic detective chief and superintendent Foyle. England is in the grip of WW2 and Foyle, anxious to join the war effort, has repeatedly had his applications turned down. He returns to the south coast, side-lined and frustrated, but it soon becomes apparent that his detective skills are vitally needed on the home-front.
Written and created by Anthony Horowitz, and also starring Anthony Howell and Honeysuckle Weeks.
