March 1943: Foyle receives a visit from his goddaughter, whom he has not seen for 10 years, and her young son who is shell shocked from when his school was bombed. When she runs off leaving her son, Foyle must locate her. A new Assistant Commissioner is after Foyle to crack down on illegal gambling. Sgt. Milner is assigned to the case and goes undercover with mixed results. Milner sees two young lads gambling lots of cash and decides to find out where they're getting their money. Foyle is also investigating a group of saboteurs. When a murders occurs near a military research facility, Foyle believes he has solved the crime but the new AC insists he release the subject in question. Foyle in turn feels he has only one option open to him. Written by garykmcd

Don't believe the things you hear about this episode!
10 May 2007 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I really don't know where people get this, but this episode was brilliant, just like all the others. It had a good story, and it even haves a bit of a cliffhanger with Foyle resigning as a DCI. I really didn't notice anything weird or less good about it and my advice is: just enjoy the episode, and don't read the other comments here 'cause they're worthless rubbish. I am looking forward to the new series, hoping they will air it this autumn or winter, and I hope it will be a good end of the war for everyone.

Foyle's War is the greatest crime series ever (coming after Midsomer Murders)!
