Synopsis

Uncertainty, espionage, bombs and internment are the new facts of life for Detective Chief Superintendent Foyle and those around him. Yet sometimes they merge with the old ones of affluent England - like unexplained death.

Although Foyle longs to join the war effort, his application is turned down. Feeling frustrated and guilty, he returns to the South Coast, but finds to his surprise that the turmoil of the conflict means his skills are vitally needed on the home front, in a series of intriguing murder investigations.

Anthony Howell plays invalid soldier Paul Milner, chosen by Foyle as his reluctant assistant, with Honeysuckle Weeks as Foyle's driver Sam Stewart, whose enthusiasm for being a working girl in the war and her own attempts at detection work don't always go down well with her boss.

Julian Ovenden plays Foyle's son Andrew, who leaves his studies at Oxford to enlist with the RAF.
