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

The American soldiers are members of the 215th Engineering Battalion (Aviation) on a mission to construct an airfield for the U.S. Army Air Corps. However the members of this unit wear the divisional insignia of the First Infantry Division. The First Infantry Division did not have a unit like the 215th in its table of organization and, in any case, did not arrive in England until July 1942, four months after the events depicted in this episode.

Comment on "Bad Blood" episode
19 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have recently begun watching Foyle's War on Netflix and I have thoroughly enjoyed the series. The attention to historical detail has been superb. I was, however, less than impressed with the way Sergeant Connor was portrayed. Although Americans are often portrayed as being gruff and overbearing in British television, I feel that they missed the mark here. A top sergeant in the U.S. military would not speak to a commanding officer, or any officer for that matter, in the manner in which he does. Especially not in front of subordinates. In all fairness, Brits are probably just as misrepresented in American cinema as well. With the exception of these minor historical flubs, I believe that Foyle's War is as good as it gets and I look forward to adding this series to my DVD library.
