First Images – Series 8 of FOYLE’S WAR

Acorn Media has released the first images from the set of the new series of Foyle’s War. The three new episodes will air as part of the MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! Season on PBS in summer of 2013.

“World War II may be over, but Christopher Foyle’s war against injustice and wrong-doing rages on,” says MASTERPIECE executive producer Rebecca Eaton. “His very loyal American fans will be thrilled.”

In his new role as a Senior Intelligence Officer, Foyle (Michael Kitchen) discovers that the British establishment is rife with communist sympathisers and traitors. In this delicately balanced period in history, 1946-47, Foyle will use all his intelligence, guile and intuition to keep the country safe. Foyle will focus his attention on the world of espionage as he gathers secret intelligence in support of Britain’s security, defence and the Government’s foreign and economic policies.

Meanwhile, Sam (Honeysuckle Weeks) is happily married to local MP Adam and finding her feet as a wife with a daunting role in local politics. Reunited with Foyle, she is also offered a surprising new working role…

The three x 120 minute films have been ordered from Eleventh Hour Films, the production company founded by producer Jill Green. Series 8 will co-star Daniel Weyman (Great Expectations), Ellie Haddington (The Café, Luther) and Tim McMullen (The Woman In Black, Silk). Series creator Anthony Horowitz penned two of the three stories, with Foyles War vet David Kane penning the other.
