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. Foyle's inquiries lead him to work on biological warfare and the search for a cure for Sam, as her illness looks terminal. Meanwhile, Sgt. 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

Trivia

The murder weapon is a veterinary trocar. Cattle can develop bloat, trapped gas in their stomachs, severe enough to kill the animal. A trocar is punched through the animal's side, into its stomach, and the high pressure gas is released. Rather like stabbing a car tire. See more »

Goofs

The first time the murder scene is shown, Thomas Jenkins, right before he is stabbed, says, "Well, well, well so you turned up. Now this is a surprise." When the murder scene is repeated later in the episode, he says only, "You?" See more »

A Goof!?
11 February 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Realising that there are now fewer and fewer viewers who actually lived through the war years in Britain, the accuracy of the scene setting and events is remarkably good. However, in 'Bad Blood'- which we were told was set in 1942 - one of the Anthrax victims (Sam) was cured by using Streptomycin. This wasn't even developed until October 1943 (by Rutgers, in America) and only released for restricted use (i.e. NOT for general hospital use) until the following years. I am also baffled to remember any effort or 'campaign' (apart from the usual wartime shortages), to save light bulbs? Neither can I find a reference to it. However, that is quibbling and generally the programs are excellent, very authentic and almost scarily evocative of living through those days.
