Before departing however, he's asked to look into the case of James Devereaux, a young man who joined the Nazi British Free Corps during the war. He was taken prisoner by the Germans and refuses to explain to anyone, including Foyle, why he agreed to join the Free Corps in the first place. In a related case, DI Paul Milner investigates the murder of Agnes Littleton who was strangled with a nylon stocking. The woman worked as a secretary for James' father, Sir Charles Devereaux. Agnes was living with the Devereaux's now retired cook, Mrs. Ramsay and from all accounts was quite happy there. She also had a friend named Jack who did something hush hush during the war.

Did You Know?


A recurring theme of this story, and indeed of the series' entire seventh season, is DCS Foyle's determination to travel to America to take care of some unfinished business. It is likely this refers to the events of Foyle's War: Fifty Ships (2003). At the end of the earlier episode, Foyle was forced to release his chief murder suspect, American diplomat Howard Paige, who was helping the UK obtain critical aid at the height of the Battle of Britain. Foyle warned Paige that when the war ended, "you will still be a thief, a liar, and a murderer, and I will not have forgotten. And wherever you are, I will find you. You're not escaping justice, you're just postponing it." See more »


When Mr. Dillon at the hotel offers to pass the letter on to anyone who comes to collect it, Foyle replies that any such person should be sent on to him (Foyle) for the letter. However, apart from his surname, Foyle has given Dillon no contact details. He hasn't even mentioned that he is connected with the police. See more »


Jack Stanford: [to James] Do you think we'll be hanged or shot? Mind you, in Carrington's case in might be neither. He might get lucky and die of the clap first.

very beautiful
4 October 2014 | by (Philadelphia, USA) – See all my reviews

I am glad to read that others thought as highly of this magnificent episode in a magnificent series. Michael Kitchen's performance and the character he created is so touching as to almost move me to tears.His acting is a marvel of subtlety, in fact his acting becomes so intense in its understatement I sometimes can't look at him. Yes, Foyle knows everything. But more importantly, he feels everything too. I am sure Horowitz deserves some credit for creating a character that Kitchen can so perfectly inhabit. But I really credit Kitchen, he must have deliberately developed the looks and mannerisms to make the points he wanted to make.He is the Maria Callas of actors.
