Masterpiece Episode: "Foyle's War: The White Feather"

Season 32, Episode 11
Episode Synopsis: In “Foyle's War: The White Feather,” the fascist-leaning proprietor of a Hastings hotel is shot to death during a get-together of Nazi sympathizers at the hotel. Foyle (Michael Kitchen) isn't certain that the victim (Maggie Steed) was the person that the killer had intended to shoot because the shooting occurred during a power outage. Foyle's also concerned by a puzzling act of sabotage by a troubled young hotel employee (Lisa Ellis). The act was minor (just one severed telephone line) but the timing's particularly distressing. It takes place during the Dunkirk evacuation of May 1940, when a German invasion was feared immanent. Guy Spencer: Charles Dance. Sam: Honeysuckle Weeks.
