Storyline

August 1942: A truck drops a sheep while driving through farmland. Nearby animals start dying, then a farmer's daughter, and Sam falls ill. Then cows fall sick and mysteriously disappear.

Milner investigates the murder of a war hero by a conscientious objector, who happens to be the brother of a past love of his. Written by N. R. Badnell

The real Christopher Foyle
12 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was told he (of bookshop fame) had a walk-on cameo in this episode - does anyone know who he played? This is what it says in Wikipedia "In a newspaper article and in his interview that accompanies the first season DVD set Anthony Horowitz was asked why he named the main character Christopher Foyle. He explained that he was seeking a name that evoked the early 1940s and thought of Foyles Bookshop in Charing Cross Road London, previously known for many years for its archaic practices and its owner Christina Foyle. Christopher was the nearest male name to Christina, but from 1999 following the death of Christina Foyle, control passed to her nephew Christopher Foyle who was given a small walk-on cameo part in the episode "Bad Blood"."
