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.

a good complex episode
11 November 2013 | by (New York, United States) – See all my reviews

I love all the Foyle's War episodes that I have seen to date. This one is very good (of course), though not the best.

It is intriguing that for quite a while there seems to be no connection between the two main subplots. If the story has any fault, it is that it is too complicated. There are an awful lot of subplots, most of which are red herrings are not really so interesting. I did like the hint of a romantic interest for Foyle.

I also much appreciate each episode learning some history of how England got through these early war years. This episode we learn about the Women's Land army.
