Michael Kitchen returns to the screen as the inimitable Detective Chief Superintendent Foyle in a brand new series which finds him working with MI5 after the Second World War. It will air on ITV in January 2015 followed by its DVD release courtesy of RLJ Entertainment's Acorn Label.
Foyle is a man of scrupulous integrity who, having survived the First World War and solved crime in the Second, now finds himself working with MI5 to keep the country safe, while bringing justice to those who deserve it. The series comes to DVD as a bumper three-disc set on 19th January 2015, complete with two hours of exclusive behind the scenes features including extensive interviews with Anthony Horowitz on the true history behind each episode. The new series consists of three powerful new films:

When it transpires the Professor was working as a translator in Nuremberg, Foyle realises there are powerful people trying to conceal secrets from the war
- Episode 2 : Trespass Tasked with ensuring security at a high level Palestinian conference, with signs that a plot to bomb the conference maybe under way, Foyle faces a race against time to uncover not only the truth, but where the truth lies
- Episode 3 : Elise When his colleague Hilda Pierce is nearly killed in an attempted assassination, Foyle must re-examine her top-secret role during the war to find out if there was a traitor at the heart of the Special Operations Executive.
With the success of previous series, Foyle's War continues to boast staggering audiences. On DVD, the show has achieved fantastic results with sales in excess of one million units, a testament to its watchability and incredible popularity.
