Storyline

DCS Foyle and Sgt. Milner investigate a series of strange events at a local manor house that has been converted to a hospital to treat RAF pilots suffering from extensive burns. Most of the incidents verge on the side of bad jokes, but when a more serious attempt is made on the life of an RAF Group Captain, they take a more serious interest. They learn that an RAF Sergeant with a criminal record, Gordon Drake, is living on a cottage on the estate and has a connection with the estate's owner, Sir Michael Waterford who may not appreciate the way the RAF has commandeered his home. Foyle also learns that Drake was having an affair with the wife of a doctor, Brian Wrenn, who also works at the burn hospital. Foyle's son Andrew, an RAF pilot, has also had several run-ins with Drake. Andrew is also suffering from fatigue and goes AWOL ending up at Sam's flat. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The plane Andrew flies has the markings of Polish Air Force Dyon 317. In some takes you can clearly see the Polish red and white checkerboard, which is still used on all Polish military planes, and the word "Poland" below it. Behind the pilot's cabin the crest of the Unit is also clearly visible. The plane is a good copy of a Spirfire flown during WWII by this particular unit. However it is unlikely that Andrew Foyle would be flying it. See more »

Goofs

Two characters are identified as Aircraftsmen in the credits. They are in fact Aircraftmen (men of aircraft, not craftsmen of the air). (Even RAF personnel sometimes make this error - but error it is!) See more »

Quotes

[watching a parody of the real mystery at a hospital revue]
Patient as Jamieson: Mr. Foyle, Mr. Foyle! I need your help! I understand you're a bit of a sleuth.
Patient as Foyle: Which bit did you have in mind?
[laughter]
Patient as Jamieson: My name is Jamieson, and I need someone with a nose for crime!
Patient as Foyle: I'm sorry, Mr. Jamieson, my nose stays where it is.
[laughter]
Patient as Jamieson: Pity. Well, listen to me. Something terrible has happened. Someone has dropped a statue on Group Captain Smythe!
Patient as Foyle: That *is* terrible.
Patient as Jamieson: You're telling me - they missed!

The often untold story of the War
2 March 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

So often you watch a War time film where you see beautifully turned out officers, the dark side with killings etc, but how often do you get to see the tragedy of what befell the Officers who were injured, often ignored by family and loved ones, many medical procedures still in their infancy. Enemy Fire manages to be both an outstandingly good whodunit, a superb character study, and it manages to open up the viewer's eyes to a part of the war that many wouldn't have even thought of. The acting is superb, many fantastic performances, Kitchen amazing as always, but the performance of Julian Ovended as Andrew for me pinches it, he brought to life the real pressures and stresses those brave pilots would have felt. It's always excellent viewing, this one has an added dimension.
