That Old Time Religion
19 September 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Foyle quit in the last episode, tired of the unfairness of the justice system during wartime. He is writing a book which he is dictating to Sam. Neither of them is very good at what they are doing. Meanwhile, the new guy isn't doing well. He is indecisive and uninspired. Milner is trying to do his best but is actually seeking a transfer. They are interviewing a man with treasonous intent who threatens Milner. Things take off from here. The other principles in the case are a young man who suffers from depression and guilt over his job, which is to identify enemy sites to be bombed. There is collusion going on between another guy and the captain who runs the secret facility. An apparent suicide is investigated as murder and an ecumenical council brings several priests together. One of them is German. Interesting episode.
