Foyle's War
updated 5.21.2007

Warning! Plot points may be revealed below!

Dear Masterpiece Theatre,
I wish to thank the producers of the great war time drama, Foyle's War. My grandfather was stationed on the south coast of England from 1941-45 with the RAF. The storylines are so good, and so close to real life, it takes my grandfather right back. The music adds the finishing touch and also sets the mood. There is one piece of music with a Glenn Miller sound: a slow foxtrot that seems to appear in all these dramas. Does anyone out there know what it is called? My grandfather proposed to my grandmother while dancing to it, and it is 63 years ago since that happy day. The program does justice to the people who lived through the world's darkest days. I hope people who view this brilliant show see it for what it is, a true-to-life drama. Well done!

Dear Masterpiece Theatre,
I have been watching and enjoying Masterpiece Theatre for 30-plus years and I can say that Foyle's War is the finest production I have ever watched. From the story content to the actors and the scenery -- superb! Bring on Foyle's War IV.

Dear Masterpiece Theatre,
My husband and I enjoy Foyle's War. We are anxious to see a new edition to the series. Masterpiece Theatre, you can't stop now. When will you produce more of these shows?

More Foyle's War will be coming. Watch this Web site for scheduling news.



Dear Masterpiece Theatre,
More, more, more!! This is the best thing to happen to TV in years.

Dear Masterpiece Theatre,
After my husband and I devoured the library's DVD collections of the three seasons of Foyle's War, we are craving to see more. Is there any possibility that there will be more of this wonderfully written historical fiction? The acting and the writing are superb. I've recommended it to all my friends and now we want to feast on more.

Dear Masterpiece Theatre,
Would any other Foyle's War viewers know if the song Paris Without the Eiffel Tower, London Without Trafalgar Square during the theatre skit in Enemy Fire (Foyle's War, Series III, aired last fall) is an original Noel Coward song or simply a sound-alike?

This PBS Mystery! series keeps us (born during the war's final year) curious about not only splendid songs of the era, but about home suffering, too, during that and other wars. Well done, PBS, for importing this fine drama series! We look forward to Series IV.

Our DVD Foyle's War collection (purchased after first seeing your Sunday night shows) includes complete episodes of Foyle's War first three seasons. We thank you again for cut or uncut Foyle's War.

All the music heard in Enemy Fire was written by composer Jim Parker. Parker has also written the scores for several other Foyle's War episodes, as well as Lost for Words, A Rather English Marriage and the original Murder Rooms, among others.



Dear Masterpiece Theatre,
I hope you will show all the episodes of Foyle's War again. The series reminded me of the play Mr. Roberts -- also about a man who wishes he were "in action" only to fight heroically in local struggles. I became very attached to the characters and wonder what happens next! Thanks.

Dear Masterpiece Theatre,
Along with Danger UXB from years ago, Foyle's War is the best series ever dealing with WWII Britain.

Dear Masterpiece Theatre,
I recently discovered the Foyle's War DVD collection at my local library. I checked out one episode, returned home and became cemented to my chair as I watched one of the most interesting, well-told, mystery/dramas I've ever seen. I quickly returned to check out the remaining episodes, savoring each of them. I intend to purchase the entire collection when I can. Please continue with the series; you must realize how popular it is. Thank you.
