Tomorrow night series VI of Foyle's War will conclude with the Anthony Horowitz-penned episode "The Hide." Here's a short bit about the story:
Foyle's War concludes on MASTERPIECE MYSTERY this Sunday, May 16, 2010. In The Hide, Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) finally retires, but is inexplicably drawn into the case of well-connected man accused of treason. Is the doomed man hiding evidence that could exonerate him? Written by Foyle's War creator Anthony Horowitz, The Hide may be Foyle's most personal case of all. (One episode; 90 minutes; TV-PG)
For those (like myself) wondering (hoping and praying is more like it!) if Foyle's War will continue, here's some encouragement from a Q&A session PBS posted on their website with Anthony Horowitz (minor spoiler for the end of "The Hide":
Foyle in America
In the new series, Foyle mentions several times that he's going to America, and at the end of the third episode we see him boarding a ship. What's he up to?
If you go back to an episode called "Fifty Ships" [from Series II], you'll find that there's a character named Howard Paige, played by Henry Goodman, who was a murderer who got away. Foyle swore that after the war he would track him down.
So this is the "unfinished business" Foyle alludes to?
Unfinished business indeed. Yes. It is very much our hope that we will come to America next year and shoot it.
Possibility of a new series
Can we look forward to a new series?
It depends on the financing falling into place. Certainly there is a huge appetite for that next show, and we wouldn't just do one. We would take Foyle into the Cold War. 1946 is a fascinating time in Britain. A lot is happening. Stalin is a new enemy. You could think of Foyle as being a prototype Smiley.
