Foyle has a number of apparently unrelated investigations under way. The most serious is the murder of Dr. Julian Worth who worked at a nearby hospital for mentally disturbed soldiers and airmen. He is found in his office stabbed in the chest with a letter opener. Worth was much disliked by his colleagues and was about to leave for a new job. The police also search for a 15-year old boy who has run away from his London home and may have returned to the area to where he was evacuated. Finally, they investigate the murder of a German POW who spent his days working on a local farm but who was no longer welcome when the owner returns after spending five years as a German prisoner of war.

Peter Phelps: [laughs] That's a good one, doctor. Where have you been these last five years? And how many people in the world have been killed while we've been sitting here having this cosy little chat?

Murder Mystery with an Emotionally Compelling Plot
7 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beyond the plot of this excellent Foyle's War double murder mystery are compelling lessons about the human condition endured by survivors who lived through the various levels of England's World War II experiences. Characters are both victims of the war and those who survived by participating in it. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is portrayed in several characters, whose special stories come together in a well acted series of inter-related sub plots. Emotional stress is spread among the characters who share the common thread of human loss, causing them emotional trauma. This mystery stays with you, especially the sensitive and creative scene where DCS Foyle (Michael Kitchen) reveals the murderer. Kitchen deserves acclaim for his portrayal of DCS Foyle, but his talent should be singled out for the acting in the ending scenes of "Broken Souls".
