Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

A new detective chief superintendent arrives at Hastings Police Station as Christopher Foyle packs his bags ready to set sail for America on the Queen Mary in an episode first shown in 2010.

But first his attention is drawn by the case of James Devereux, a young man on trial for high treason. He’s a soldier, a former German prisoner of war recruited by the Nazis to join the British Free Corps. Devereux refuses to offer any evidence in his defence and almost certainly faces the gallows.

The condemned man’s father is a bluff, pompous aristocrat who has never been close to his son. Does the recent murder of his secretary have any bearing on the case, or is it just mere coincidence?

What unfolds is a poignant, intriguing story that reveals a few tantalising details about Foyle’s early life and influences. It’s also lifted up a few notches by a performance of quiet power by Andrew Scott as the young prisoner.
