New Series

The new films follow Christopher Foyle(Michael Kitchen)’s battles with murder, mystery and betrayal on the south coast as England stands on the brink of victory in the Second World War.

From the pen of acclaimed scriptwriter and novelist Anthony Horowitz, Foyle’s War became an instant hit on its debut in 2002. The first series won the Lew Grade Audience Award at the 2003 BATFA Television Awards, the second series was nominated for a BAFTA for best television series, and it has been sold to 26 countries around the world.

The three two-hour films once again star Anthony Howell as injured sergeant Paul Milner and Honeysuckle Weeks as the headstrong Sam Stewart. Julian Ovenden returns to the series as Foyle’s son Andrew, the fighter pilot back from the war to win back the love of his sweetheart Sam.

Guest stars include Phyllida Law, Jesse Birdsall, Natasha Little and Joseph Mawle.

Filmed in London and the southern counties of England, Foyle’s War is written by Anthony Horowitz and Michael Chaplin. The producer is Lars Macfarlane, the directors are Tristram Powell and Simon Langton, and executive producer is Jill Green.
