Foyle’s War and Peace

Rejoice, all you American fans of the British TV series Foyle’s War. That exceptional World War II-era crime drama will return to PBS’ Masterpiece Mystery! rotation on Sunday, May 2, with the first of three new, 90-minute episodes starring Michael Kitchen. The setup for this sixth season of Foyle’s War reads thusly:
It is June 1945, and VE Day has been celebrated in Britain. The state of the country, however, is far from jubilant in the aftermath of war. Keen to retire, but bound to his old job by the steep rise in violent crime that swept the country, Foyle is thrust into the dangerous worlds of international conspiracy and execution, military racism and national betrayal. He must feel his way through this new world as he faces some of his toughest challenges and gripping plots to date.
The series continues on May 9 and 16.

By the way, the summer schedule for Masterpiece Mystery! also promises new episodes of Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, and Inspector Lewis. That schedule is here.
