Foyle Under a Microscope
1 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Foyle is accused of sedition when a man who was in a bombing raid uses his name. He is immediately removed from his position and a zealot from the head office investigates. There is more to the story than meets the eye, but Foyle cannot act on his own, leaving his young assistant and his driver to their own designs. They are bullied by this guy, Sam being sent to the old motor pool from whence she came. When a suspected suicide occurs, this man leaps to the conclusion that murder was not the cause of death. Eventually, word of what is going on and a bit of chicanery gets our wonderful policeman back in the game. The villainy that is taking place is the centerpiece of this episode. The strength of this series is that the war is a central character. Foyle's son has been injured and is unable to rejoin his unit. This leads to a relationship between he and Sam.
