Storyline

DCS Foyle and Sgt. Milner investigate a series of strange events at a local manor house that has been converted to a hospital to treat RAF pilots suffering from extensive burns. Most of the incidents verge on the side of bad jokes, but when a more serious attempt is made on the life of an RAF Group Captain, they take a more serious interest. They learn that an RAF Sergeant with a criminal record, Gordon Drake, is living on a cottage on the estate and has a connection with the estate's owner, Sir Michael Waterford who may not appreciate the way the RAF has commandeered his home. Foyle also learns that Drake was having an affair with the wife of a doctor, Brian Wrenn, who also works at the burn hospital. Foyle's son Andrew, an RAF pilot, has also had several run-ins with Drake. Andrew is also suffering from fatigue and goes AWOL ending up at Sam's flat. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The plane Andrew flies has the markings of Polish Air Force Dyon 317. In some takes you can clearly see the Polish red and white checkerboard, which is still used on all Polish military planes, and the word "Poland" below it. Behind the pilot's cabin the crest of the Unit is also clearly visible. The plane is a good copy of a Spirfire flown during WWII by this particular unit. However it is unlikely that Andrew Foyle would be dying it. See more »

Goofs

When fixing the fuse in Dr Wrenn's house, Gordon Drake refers to it as a ring main fuse. Ring mains did not start to be introduced in the UK until after World War II. In February 1941 (when this episode is set) it was at least a year before the ring main concept was even being discussed in the government's Electrical Installations Committee, which was convened in 1942 and reported in 1944. But as it was a lighting fuse, a ring main would not be used even now. Also, a 3 amp fuse was very unlikely for a lighting circuit - the common fuse for a radial lighting circuit would have been 5 amps. See more »

A Truly Human Episode
13 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I believe that this particular offering gave us a truly biting view of war and its implications. We are thrust into the world of medicine needed to treat the horrors of this time in history (as we continue to do to this day). Our current wars have flooded us with dismemberment, burns, and, yes, death. It is bad enough for the victims as they try to recover from physical injuries, but the stresses on them brought on by ignorant and insensitive people who now treat them as less then whole, must be a terrifying thing. The young man who awaits the arrival of his betrothed lies in the hospital, feeling less a man. This is soundly portrayed in this excellent portrayal. Foyle's must wade through some really evil events as he guides and directs his investigation.
