Michael Kitchen as Foyle

Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks return for the first time since 2010 in three highly anticipated new episodes in Series VII of Foyle's War. It's 1946, and in the brewing Cold War climate of post-war Britain, Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) and his loyal friend Sam (Honeysuckle Weeks) find themselves adjusting to a new era of secrets, intelligence, and security as the Iron Curtain descends and MI5 comes knocking.

Episode 1: “The Eternity Ring"
Sunday, September 15th 8:00-9:30pm
With one war ended, a new one is looming as the iron curtain falls across Europe. Suspecting that British atomic research has been infiltrated, MI5 asks Foyle to investigate the possibility of a Russian spy network in the heart of London. During his inquiry, Foyle learns that his former driver, Sam, has been working for one of the possible suspects. Could she be involved?

Episode 2: “The Cage”
Sunday, September 22nd 8:00-9:30pm
A severely injured man drags himself to a hospital, only to die shortly after being found by a nurse and doctor. As Foyle makes inquiries, he is led to discover a mysterious military facility full of secrets that could threaten British Intelligence. Meanwhile, Sam's jumbled efforts to help her husband Adam campaign for Parliament draw surprising results.

Episode 3: “Sunflower”
Sunday, September 29th 8:00-9:30pm
Foyle is tasked with protecting Karl Strasser, a Nazi officer turned MI5 informant who believes he’s in danger. America wants Strasser extradited for his involvement in a wartime event, but British Intelligence is determined to protect him. As Foyle nears a solution to the case, the unfathomable truth of “Operation Sunflower” is revealed.
