Synopsis by Michael Hastings
Michael Kitchen stars as the titular detective in this short series of mysteries set amidst the backdrop of England at the dawn of World War II. Foyle's War: The German Woman examines the effects of nationalist paranoia in the normally sleepy burgh of Hastings, where Foyle is stationed. It seems that a German immigrant has been interned by the local authorities in a manner so traumatic, it causes his wife to suffer a severe heart attack. As Foyle investigates the death, he learns that the town's detainment of Germans is more selective than one might think, and he begins to uncover suspicious activities that may have led to the woman's death.
