Inside Foyle's War

Thursday, March 6 at 9:00 p.m.

Go behind the scenes of the must-see WWII series and learn secrets about the sleuth in the fedora.

Combining uncompromising historical accuracy with compelling, character-driven murder mysteries, this award-winning British series has won worldwide critical acclaim and undying viewer loyalty since its premiere on WGTE and PBS in 2003.

Offering a unique glimpse into a significant time and place, “Foyle’s War” stars Michael Kitchen as DCS Christopher Foyle, a laconic World War I veteran who serves as detective chief superintendent in the English town of Hastings. As World War II rages, Foyle investigates crimes on the home front, exposing the ravages of war on his once quiet coastal community. After the war, Foyle joins the intelligence community as the Cold War begins.

This new special features interviews with creator and writer Anthony Horowitz (“Poirot,” “Midsomer Murders,” the “Alex Rider” book series), executive producer Jill Green, director Stuart Orm, historians, and co-stars Honeysuckle Weeks, Anthony Howell and Daniel Weyman.
