Storyline

A young man tries to kill Hilda Pierce, saying "This is for Elise." Visiting her in hospital Foyle meets over-bearing Sir Ian Woodhead, now head of MI6, who, during the war, ran SOE with Hilda, sending undercover agents into occupied France. Foyle learns that Elise was the codename of Sophie Corrigan, an agent killed by the Nazis and that the young man is her brother Miles, out to take revenge on those who sent her to die. At the same time Foyle's department is investigating high powered black marketer Damian White, who has dealings with a Russian diplomat and has corrupt policemen on his payroll. A recovering Hilda tells Foyle that nine agents died in France and the SOE believed that a spy, code-named Plato, was responsible. There are three suspects - one of whom is being blackmailed by White into giving him government papers that he sells to the Soviets. Foyle finally unveils the truth, causing terrible consequences for two people. Written by don @ minifie-1

Shaken, not stirred, and heavy on the Gravitas
23 April 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

This is the second time I am reviewing a Foyle that is supposed to be the last, but I am not complaining because I got to watch three more episodes, and that puts me ahead in the bargain.

I am gob-smacked at how different this is from the first-generation Foyles. This episode, a highly cynical look at the clandestine services, has more in common with a Le Carre novel than with a Foyle adventure. In fact, Foyle is no longer the centrepiece here, he is merely a component of a complex clockwork of a plot that, once wound, must proceed to its ultimate conclusion.

It is almost pitch-perfect. One might argue there are lulls but I suggest these are the result of false expectations. If you were expecting a simple police procedural, you will be disappointed. If you wanted the whole series wrapped with ribbons and bows, you are likely in the right spot.

I will repeat again that the notion of placing Honeysuckle Weeks in jeopardy every single episode is the only atonal element. It was fun the first time, seemed forced the second time, and so on.

I also loved the fast joke in the last 60s seconds when Weeks discloses her condition and Kitchen, sub vocce, says he will manage, but perhaps not "the country." I will miss Foyle. Really.
