Michael Kitchen stars as the titular detective in this short series of mysteries set amidst the backdrop of England at the dawn of World War II. Foyle's War: A Lesson in Murder concerns the mysterious circumstances involving the death of a conscientious objector to the war effort. It seems that he died while in police custody, and the man who had him arrested, Judge Gascoigne (Oliver Ford Davies), is coming under a lot of scrutiny since the incident. Gascoigne rules over his court -- and his family -- with an iron fist, and as a result has made many a citizen more than a little perturbed. What's more, when Foyle learns of the secretive nature of the victim's former workplace -- a munitions factory -- he discovers yet another wrinkle to the case. ~ Michael Hastings
