Excellent British historical series. Second or (third?) time watching some episodes.

We love Michael Kitchen's Foyle in our house, but I gave this one a 4 instead of a 5 because it is dark, pessimistic, and Foyle seems worn out compared to the brilliance and lightness of his war years. Perhaps this is because he is caught in the machinations and duplicities of the London bureaucracy, where his creativity is tightly channelled, as compared to the freedom and independence he had in Hastings. Anyway, still enjoyable but don't expect the same light and airiness as the wartime years.

This successful BBC detective series was set in Sussex during WWII and now seems set in London as Foyle moves on to work with MI5. The UK has been exhausted by the five years of war and as the commentary points out, many people at the time were asking if Britain really won the war if their present condition was anything to go by. There is only a limited continuity between what should be considered the beginning of a new series, Foyle's (Cold) War and the previous series, Foyle's (WWII) War. The series continues it's highly accurate portrait of the era life and times in it's attention to details. If you enjoyed the previous series you will enjoy this one as well.

i didn't like the 1st 2 episodes at all. violent, creepy, communist. the 3rd one was better. also honeysuckle looked pale, thin and terrible with her horrible wartime hairdo. she didn't really have a clear place in this series.

Anthony Horowitz is a genius. I so loved the Foyle's War series and was disappointed it ended, but then WWII cannot go on forever. But Mr Horowitz created a new era in which Christopher Foyle could ply his forensic skills. At the end of the first episode "The Eternity Ring", the cold war, MI5. and Foyle's involvement are nicely spelled out for the viewer.

I really enjoyed this new series! I wasn't sure how I would feel about the new spy series, but it was wonderful!

Even better than the original series! Well-written, intelligent scripts and excellent casts in post WWII Cold War intrigue provide even more suspense. Call it Le Carre Light. Don't miss this one.
