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

What a disappointment this episode was.
25 February 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Having previously praised the mostly accurate authenticity of this series, this one was a total disappointment. The most crass inaccuracy (how on earth did it get past anyone with half a brain?) was showing an alleged Royal Navy Captain, working at the Admiralty no less, wearing a Thin, Military Moustache!!! There were 'No' moustaches in the British Navy. A full beard OR clean-shaven. Heads should roll for that one alone! Others - A 'hush, hush' secret establishment working on a 'secret' weapon without any security at all???? No guards, overt or hidden? Doors open to anyone? Known to be saboteurs operating in the area? The saboteurs themselves, only incompetent youths? A suitcase full of sticks of explosive detonating but not killing 4 people within a few metres??? A proved hostile 'neutral' diplomat known to be organising sabotage and nothing is done??? Oh, dear, oh dear, oh dear. (145 words)
