Michael Kitchen plays Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle, a man one can’t help but admire. I particularly like the way he questions suspects. There is solid strength behind his quiet, unassuming manner. Honeysuckle Weeks plays his spunky driver “Sam” Stewart. You can see, just in the way she walks, that her small body is harnessing untold energy. Fun. Intriguing. Foyle’s War.
Oh yes! This is going to be the summer of Foyle’s War for our family. We have only watched two episodes but we are loving this uncommonly wonderful British mystery series, set in Hastings, on the coast of England, in 1940. The writing, the music, the cinematography, the acting–they are all quite good.
