Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This typically melancholy episode from 2004 revolves around Digby Manor, a stately pile near Hastings (of which, in Foyle’s War, there seem to be any number) that has been requisitioned to become a burns hospital. But nasty accidents start happening at the unit and there are worrying developments elsewhere, too.

Foyle’s son Andrew, a Spitfire pilot, has reached a crisis in his flying career; a dodgy RAF mechanic is getting fresh with Hastings housewives; and Foyle’s sidekick Paul Milner believes the doctor who operated on his shattered leg is acting strangely. The disparate elements come together to tell a delicate story about how the war scarred ordinary people and their relationships.
