The war in Europe is over, and Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle hopes his crime-fighting days are, too. But murder knows no respite in the seaside town of Hastings, and the unflappable chief must solve a trio of his most challenging cases yet. Michael Kitchen stars with Honeysuckle Weeks in the hit series praised by The Wall Street Journal as “consistently captivating.”

In this episode: In the war’s aftermath, Hastings is a transit point for Russian POWs who changed sides to fight for the Nazis and now face an uncertain future. The War Office assigns Foyle to track down one escapee, and the reason for his flight becomes shockingly clear.

"Foyle's War" will be available for online viewing beginning May 3, 2010.
