Opinion

From Library Staff

Detective Christopher Foyle solves crimes on the home front as he's refused the opportunity to serve during World War II.

English Detective Christopher Foyle solves crimes on the home front while he reluctantly sits out on World War II. It's fascinating to see how World War II played out on the south coast of England.

A highly intelligent series that is fascinating on many levels. It's set during World War II but the focus is on the civilian folks in a seaside town. And then there's always a good mystery in each episode.

Disc 1 contains The German Woman, an interview with Anthony Horowitz, filmographies of main characters, and production notes, including how the series came to be and production design challenges. Disc 2 contains The White Feather, filmographies of main characters, and the same production notes as were on Disc 1. Disc 3 contains A Lesson in Murder, the same production notes as were on Discs 1 and 2, and filmographies. David Tennant has a supporting role in this episode. Disc 4 contains Eagle Day, the rest of the interview with Anthony Horowitz, filmographies, and the same production notes as were on discs 1, 2, and 3.

This is an excellent series. Wish I would of started watching them when they first came out. Have watched up to Series 4 and will continue to watch all them until I'm caught up. My ONE AND ONLY complaint: SUBTITLES(!) or lack of them! Seriously, I NEED subtitles, especially when watching shows from Great Britain. I have a lot of trouble trying to understand what is said. That is my one and only complaint about this series. Some of the other British shows have the subtitle options, I wish this one did. I think I'm missing out on important stuff being said by not understanding the accent. Highly recommend people to watch this series.
