Masterpiece Episode: "Foyle's War: The German Woman"

Season 32, Episode 10
Episode Synopsis: “Foyle's War.” A taciturn British police detective (Michael Kitchen) who'd rather be off fighting for his country battles crime at home instead in this series of four mysteries set during World War II in the English Channel town of Hastings. In the opener, it's May 1940 and residents fear Nazi attacks, so Germans aren't especially welcome. But when the German wife of a rich local magistrate is murdered, Foyle doesn't assume that the motive was patriotism gone amok, even though a swastika was carved on a tree near the spot where the body was found. Sam: Honeysuckle Weeks. Summers: Edward Fox.
