Quotes

DCS Christopher Foyle: The German woman was protected by influential friends, and it's still possible that it was those friends that wanted her dead. She was as fit as you or me, and yet the family doctor lied about an angina condition on her medical report to prevent her from being interned.
Assistant Commissioner Summers: So you've arrested him, this doctor?
DCS Christopher Foyle: No, because he was only a part of it.
Assistant Commissioner Summers: Are you suggesting there was a conspiracy?
DCS Christopher Foyle: I'm suggesting that Henry Beaumont, her husband, is rich and influential, and would find it very easy to ...

Michael Kitchen has reached his goal in life
31 October 2002 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I've only seen one edition of this series but instantly I could see what a classic series it must become (and I normally don't like detective series of any description - saw this one by chance). This is excellent.

The period production is brilliant with lots of old cars, houses, and a brilliant recreation of the 1940s; add to this the War in the background and the programme gives a magnificent depiction of the domestic front during the War, what with all of the profiteering, the pressure on police, etc. How do you deal with mundane murder at home when it's magnified a thousand fold in the battlefield?

That is the main theme of the series.

Michael Kitchen is a revelation and will surely go down with the greatest of all television detectives - along with Poirot (Suchet), Maigret and all the others. It's as if his whole career has been waiting for this role.

Fantastic series.
