August 1940: During the blitz, a man is found in his bombed-out house, stabbed in the chest. The man was a lorry driver who was transporting works of art to Wales for safekeeping. Foyle suspects that the man's job and the art work are somehow related to his death. Foyle's son Andrew, an RAF pilot, stops in en route to his first operational assignment. Disappointed at not being assigned to a squadron, he finds that he is to assist in the development of a new technology - radar. Things get dicey when Andrew is accused of giving information to the enemy. Sam receives a visits from her clergyman father who insists that she pack it in and return home. Written by garykmcd

The Spoils of War
25 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Germans do a bombing run and when a collapsed building is combed, a man is found with a knife in his chest. It appears that he was not killed in the explosion but rather, murdered. His wife admits to having had an affair. She is filled with guilt. Meanwhile, Foyle's son, a pilot for the RAF, instead of getting his own assignment to fly into battle is put into a test pilot program, using experimental jets. The problem is that while he is doing this heroic work for the war effort, he can't tell anyone what he is doing. As a matter of fact, he comes under suspicion for spying (this, of course, is not true, but he is being vilified by some overzealous brass). The effort to explain the stabbing and the incarceration of his son become the two principle problems Foyle must deal with. There are levels of authority that must be dealt with and, of course, they are unyielding in their tunnel vision way. A separate issue has to do with the shortsightedness of a minister father, trying to diminish the importance of the young woman who is Foyle's driver. I liked this episode.
