Foyle's new boss, Sir Alec Meyerson, asks him to investigate the deaths of three Russian defectors,who were all in supposedly safe houses. Then another, dying Russian, collapses in a hospital, his last words apparently being 'Ten Eye' and Doctor Ross, who tried to save him, is murdered after asking Foyle to meet him. In looking into the doctor's death Foyle discovers the significance of 'Ten Eye' at a secretive military establishment which eaves-drops on Russian transmissions and decodes them for the West. At the same time the disappearance of one of Adam's constituents seems to be linked with the defection of a woman with the same name, who was the safe houses' liaison officer. As Foyle discovers who really betrayed the Russians and killed the doctor for knowing too much Sam helps Adam to political success. Written by don @ minifie-1

Charlotte asks Foyle how to spell the Russian word, but the spelling is immaterial. Russian is written with the Cyrillic alphabet, and there are few, if any, rules for transposing Russian words into the Roman alphabet, especially during the 1940s. See more »

Multiple Screw Ups
23 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

When a system is put in place, the thing that can bring it down is smugness and self-centeredness. If you have all the answers, chances are you don't have all the answers. In "The Cage" Russians are being murdered. They have a connection to each other. Since Foyle has been invited into the higher levels of the British secret service, they have trouble, since they are not used to honesty and forthrightness. A young woman is mistakenly taken into custody because she has the same name as the intended target. Of course, the bad asses can't let her go for fear of exposing their dirty dealings. Foyle is intrepid in his actions. There is a subplot as Sam and her husband do the usual stuff it takes to get elected to office, making mistakes along the way. Foyle comes to realize that there are people, in whose arena he is playing, that are not what they appear.
