The hit PBS series set against the backdrop of World War II! "A triumph from start to finish" - The Wall Street Journal; "For mystery fans...a must see" - The Houston Chronicle; "Brilliantly explores the moral gray areas of war" - San Francisco Chronicle.
Combining uncompromising historical accuracy with compelling mysteries, this award-winning British series offers a unique glimpse into a significant time and place. Michael Kitchen (Out of Africa) stars as Christopher Foyle, a laconic World War I veteran who serves as detective chief superintendent in the English town of Hastings.

The 22 mysteries in this collection follow the course of the war and its aftermath from 1940 to 1945.
Also starring Anthony Howell and Honeysuckle Weeks. Guest stars include Julian Ovenden, Corin Redgrave, Robert Hardy Charles Dance, Michael Jayston, Rosamund Pike, Amanda Root, James Wilby, Tim Pigott-Smith, David Tennant, and James McAvoy. Includes all episodes from Foyle's War Sets 1-6.
