The situation threatens not only their already strained relationship, but also Foyle's life. KILLING TIME: July 1945. While African American GIs wait for transport home, racial tensions run high at the army base in Hastings--particularly when a black American serviceman becomes romantically involved with a white local woman. Then a series of night-time holdups adds to the town's concerns and leaves Foyle puzzled THE HIDE: August 1945.

Unlike some people who seem to delight in spotting mistakes and continuity errors and proclaiming their knowledge of the same to anyone who will listen I ignore these and concentrate on the story. It matters not a jot that the rank of Chief Superintendent didn't come into being until 1949 or that the Spitfires used were not in service until a later date. If the story is well presented and enjoyable that is enough for me even though I notice these errors, they do not detract from my enjoyment.
What does cause my hackles to rise is the way that the Union Flag is often flown upside down. This is not only disrespectful but shows ignorance and it is common in most films and TV series, it has even been known at an official function.
Despite the above I look forward to seeing series 8 and hope that I enjoy it as much as I did the others.
His services are recruited by another familiar face, Miss Pierce, and then finagles the winsome Sam (Honeysuckle Weeks) as his driver/gopher. Sam and her new husband have lost their B&B, and he has decided to stand for MP for their London district.
We're treated to more of the unfamiliar conditions of post-war England - continued rationing, food production problems, temporary manufactured housing as so many houses had been bombed out.
Biggest treat of all is watching Michael Kitchen's Christopher Foyle solve two more convoluted cases, carefully crafted by skilled script writing and with brilliant interpretations by all the principals.
Bonus material includes some interesting reveals of the techniques used to set the scenes, designing costumes, producing the special effects.
As said, a trifle dear, but still worth the cost when considering that the discs are going to be replayed again and again over the years. The impression is that thie is really the end, that no more War is to be fought by Foyle - but with luck, Anthony Horowitz the writer will delve again into the archives and find more than enough material to forge for us a few more of these fascinating tales.
