Storyline

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.

One of the best episodes
4 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's now fall of 1944, and the war is winding down -- people are hoping it will end any day (although it was another six months before it did, and many more casualties resulted). In this episode, possibly the saddest in the series, several lives come together, all victims of the war or other unpleasant human circumstances, resulting in two deaths, neither premeditated; both due to anger, but one very generalized, one very specific. The upshot is a series of lives ruined, lives of people who were good people, perhaps, but like others in a war-torn environment, the boundaries between good and evil are lost. All in all, even the joy that anyone in this episode can feel is tainted with unbearable sadness and the possibility that all could be lost at any moment. Life is frail.
