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 (#6.1)" (2010), set in peace-time, was the first of these episodes.See more »

WW2 is over and everyone is having a hard time adjusting to peace..., 14 June 2009
Author: Neil Doyle from U.S.A.

A very interesting drama from the FOYLE'S WAR series called "All Clear," it's especially engrossing for me because I just watched a series of color films on the Military Channel about WWII with all of the footage photographed entirely in color dealing with the end of the war.

The writer has managed to dovetail all the details of the close of the war into his story about Foyle (MICHAEL KITCHEN) announcing retirement, his son (JULIAN OVENDEN) returning from war as a flier and meeting up again with Samantha (HONEYSUCKLE WEEKS). A few other sub-plots all deal with average British men and women all trying to make the difficult adjustment to peacetime after four or five years of separation, during which time all of them have changed.

The mystery involves the suspicious death of a man who commits suicide and the sudden murder of another man because of political ambitions gone awry. The clues are neatly tied together before the finish and altogether it's one of the best episodes in this highly satisfying British series.

All the performances are first rate. Well worth watching.
