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 murder 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

AC Henry Parkins: I need Mr. Foyle's driver to take me to the Regency Hotel. Where is he?
Samantha Stewart: Oh... That's me, sir.
AC Henry Parkins: What?...
Samantha Stewart: I'm Mr. Foyle's driver.
AC Henry Parkins: But that's not a police uniform.
Samantha Stewart: Well, no, I was, um, transferred from the MTC. I know it's a bit irregular, but what with the war and everything, there was no one else.
AC Henry Parkins: It's more than irregular! A transfer from the MTC, it's unheard of! How long has this been going on for?
Samantha Stewart: About three years... I don't mind, really...
AC Henry Parkins: It's not you I'm thinking of, it's police procedure!

Another interesting episode full of plot twists and turns...
8 July 2007 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Far from disappointing is this well scripted episode of FOYLE'S WAR: CASUALTIES OF WAR, in which Foyle is caught up in a visit from a young woman (his niece) whom he hasn't seen in ten years and her young son who refuses to talk after a bombing at his school kills many of his classmates and teachers. MICHAEL KITCHEN is again in good form as Foyle and the supporting cast does fine ensemble work.

Thrown into the mix are several other sub-plots, the one involving espionage and top secret classified work being the most interesting and the way it's resolved is explored in a satisfactory way.

Nitpicking aside, it's true that those working on highly classified information would hardly be working in the kind of unguarded shack displayed here, but the story involving the clever woman and the cunning way she disposes of her husband is absorbing and well done.

An appealing performance by the young boy helps a great deal, and most of the other roles are filled by very capable British actors.

Summing up: The resolution is a bit downbeat but the story moves at a quick pace and makes an entertaining treat.
