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

Did You Know?


Andrew is promoted to Flight Lieutenant. This is two steps up from where he began, with the two lower ranks being Pilot Officer and Flying Officer. It is also one step below Squadron Leader. See more »


In the episode Foyle's War: The Funk Hole, Andrew tells Sam that he was 8 when his mother died, but Foyle is at his wife's grave on the 9th anniversary of her death. This would mean that Andrew is only 17 in this episode, which is highly unlikely for a character that is supposed to have put university on hold to serve in the RAF. See more »


Anne Bolton: Sam told me Greville had been hurt. She told me I should visit him, but it was only when I was there, I realized I didn't want to. Does that sound very cool to you, sergeant Milner? I can't see him, I should want to see him, I want the Greville Woods I was in love with, the Greville I was going to marry. I tried to make myself visit him, that's why I was there that night, but I couldn't do it, I couldn't face him.
Sergeant Paul Milner: Thank you, miss Bolton.
Anne Bolton: You think I'm disgusting?...
Sergeant Paul Milner: No... But I will speak out ...

A Truly Human Episode
13 September 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I believe that this particular offering gave us a truly biting view of war and its implications. We are thrust into the world of medicine needed to treat the horrors of this time in history (as we continue to do to this day). Our current wars have flooded us with dismemberment, burns, and, yes, death. It is bad enough for the victims as they try to recover from physical injuries, but the stresses on them brought on by ignorant and insensitive people who now treat them as less then whole, must be a terrifying thing. The young man who awaits the arrival of his betrothed lies in the hospital, feeling less a man. This is soundly portrayed in this excellent portrayal. Foyle's must wade through some really evil events as he guides and directs his investigation.
