Storyline

March 1942: The US Army Corps of Engineers arrives in Hastings to build an aerodrome and Foyle needs to calm a local farmer whose land has been requisitioned by the government. Foyle also gets hooked into giving a lecture to the American GIs on local customs. It all takes a more serious turn when a local barmaid, Susan Davies, is found strangled. She had been seeing one of the GIs and was pregnant, but was also involved selling illegal whiskey for her employer, Alan Carter. Meanwhile Sgt. Milner investigates the death of friend, Will Grayson, who died in a house fire. He had been drinking at Carter's pub but wasn't drunk when he left and Milner can't quite figure out why his friend didn't get out of the burning house in time. Finally, Sam gets unhappy news from boyfriend Andrew. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

GI Joe brings a box of food to the police station for Sam. The largest item is a box labeled "G.H. BETT CO." This is a close facsimile of the G.H. BENT CO. cold water cracker box. This company is still in business so the misspelled name might be either an error or avoiding copyright infringement. See more »

Goofs

Captain Kieffer wears a Sam Browne belt, a leather belt with an attachment that goes over the right shoulder. Although its use has been called an anachronism because it was eliminated on officer uniforms issued from 1940, it was not officially abolished until June 7, 1942 when Change #22 to AR 600-35 was issued -- three months after the period depicted in "Invasion." Even then, a few officers continued to wear them. Also contrary to an earlier post, the lapel brass on Captain Kieffer's uniform IS correctly placed. Lapel brass was parallel with the the ground on U.S. Army officer uniforms during WW2. See more »

Comments on "Bad Blood" episode
1 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I just received a tape of this episode of Foyle's War from Great Britain. As in the previous episodes of this series, this and the other episode of Foyle's War 4 were beautifully photographed and well acted. Having said that, I was disappointed in the research done about two of the facts included in this film.

When the GI (Joe Franetti) is talking to Samantha Stewart about his military service, he says he received training at Fort Benning in Virginia. Fort Benning is located in the state of Georgia, not Virginis.

Second, a reference is made to the medicine streptomycin. According to the internet site "Foyle's war.com" this episode is set in August 1942. Streptomycin was not discovered until 1944.

I hope the producers/director will do a better job in researching all the facts about the events in wartime Great Britain. This is one of the best series on television. Please don't let poor research degrade this excellent production.
