It's early May 1945 and the formal announcement that the war is over is imminent. The station is being relocated and Foyle is definite that he is going to retire. DS Paul Milner anxiously awaits news of a possible promotion to Inspector. Sam is trying her best to find a job, but finds it a hard slog. Foyle's son Andrew also re-appears and wonders if Sam will have anything to do with him after the way he treated her. On the policing front, Foyle investigates the murder of Dr. Henry Ziegler, who was stabbed on the street. Ziegler was a transplanted Austrian but had recently faced the brunt of anti-German feeling in the community. When one of his patients soon after commits suicide, Foyle and Milner must determine what, if any, connection there might be between the two deaths. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Following the decision of the former Director of Television for ITV, Simon Shaps (who only stayed in the job for eighteen months), to cancel the series, this episode was intended to be the last ever made. Writer Anthony Horowitz had to abandon several scripts for episodes set in 1944, and jump forwards to this episode covering the end of the war in 1945. After Shaps left his TV executive role, three more episodes were filmed in 2009. Foyle's War: The Russian House (2010), set in peace-time, was the first of these episodes. See more »

The green cardi!
13 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This final episode of Foyles War is the perfect closer for the series. As an avid knitter though, I would love to find the pattern for the green cardigan that Honeysuckle Weeks wears in the last scenes. If anyone can point me in the right direction to find this I would be very grateful, or even a really good photo would be helpful. I believe that the pattern is based on the Japanese Honeysuckle plant,but I haven't been able to look at the piece closely enough. I love the shape of it and the colour. This series came to an end as all must but left the eager viewer with many questions as to the future of the characters. It was an enticing period for a lot of us to watch and the period costuming was done quite well.

I look forward to seeing Ms Weeks in more dramas and comedies, along with the rest of the cast.
