Plot Summary

Christopher Foyle is a Detective Chief Superintendent in the Hastings Police. It is 1940 and England has its back to the wall in the war against Germany. With this constant threat as a backdrop, plus having to deal with political interference and prioritisation of the military, Foyle quietly goes about doing what he does best: solving murders.

Edit
Trivia Writer and creator Anthony Horowitz based the character of Sam Stewart on his childhood nanny and governess Norah Fitzgerald, who had been a WAAF driver during World War II, and used to tell Horowitz stories of her wartime experiences and exploits. See more »
Goofs While it is correct to state that the rank of Chief Superintendent was not created until 1949 it was used before this in special circumstances. An officer junior to the assistant chief constable but with a large division or divisions under his control for example. So it is quite feasible that Folye, with such a large section of the south coast under his command was given the superior rank. See more »

Quotes [Andrew has joined his father on a fishing trip]
Andrew Foyle: I can't see the attraction of standing ankle deep in mud, trying to catch a fish too stupid to come any where near us.
DCS Christopher Foyle: Don't underestimate the intellegence of the average trout, and besides, they can hear you from forty feet away, so please try and keep quiet!
