Storyline

DCS Foyle investigates the death of Hugh Jackson who is found sitting in his living room, shot to death. It has all of the earmarks of a suicide and it's confirmed that Jackson had lived a lonely life since his wife ran off with another man several years before. Jackson had recently had a quarrel with a neighbor. His son Tom also stood to inherit the man's farm and get a military deferment as well. Finally, there are three young women at the farm who may have reasons of their own to do him in. The night Jackson was killed, three German airmen were shot down in the area and while all were captured, Foyle believes one of them may have information relevant to the investigation.

Quotes

DCS Christopher Foyle: You left the farmhouse, and made your next mistake. You tried to get rid of the gun.
Raimund Weiser: Yes. That was a mistake.
DCS Christopher Foyle: So, we know you did it, it's just a question of why? Perhaps being spotted faking the parachute drop didn't suit your purposes, so you had to destroy the witness? Why else would you do it?
[silence]
Raimund Weiser: [shrugs, smirking] He was English.
Major Cornwall: You'll hang for this.

Down on the Farm
14 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very harsh man is killed one night. We start out suspecting that he is the murdering kind and that there will be a victim of his wrath. However, his "suicide" coincides with the arrival of some German paratroopers, who are gathered up and put to work in a kind of armed camp. They are treated with respect but there seems to be some secret at work here. Meanwhile, a group of women who are working the land begin to act in suspicious ways. Foyle's allows his driver to work with them because they have a potato crop coming in. They have been making fun of her because of her "uppity" ways. There is an incident of the aforementioned man's wife leaving him and this leads to lots of rather complex to connections. It's a good episode, showing another side of the war.
