‘Foyle’s War’ will return for Series 8 in 2015

Posted Filed under

Michael Kitchen will return to the role of Christopher Foyle, a Senior Intelligence Officer for the secret service, MI5, in three new two-hour films for ITV.

Written by creator Anthony Horowitz, Series 8 will be inspired by real events in the early Cold War and will follow Foyle’s battles in the dangerous world of espionage, at a time in our country’s history when political and foreign governmental relationships were delicately balanced.

The stories will explore the world of the American and German businesses that were accused of fuelling Hitler’s War Machine and will reflect on the tangled web of promises to the Jews to create a state of Israel in British Palestine. The major blight of post war Britain, the Black Market, will be focused on as will some of the darkest secrets from operations conducted by the British Special Operations Executive during WW2.

Filming will continue until April and the new episodes will air on ITV in 2015.
