ITV have announced the transmission date for the return of Foyle’s War. The three 90 minute episodes will debut on Sunday 24 March at 8pm on ITV.
Michael Kitchen stars again as the thoughtful and enigmatic Foyle but in this new series (series eight) we will see him in a different and exciting new role – working for British Secret Intelligence.
With one war ended, a new one is looming as the iron curtain falls across Europe. MI5 suspects British atomic research has been infiltrated, and ask Foyle to investigate whether a Russian spy network could be at work in the heart of London.
The first episode will be entitled The Eternity Ring.
16 July 1945. A military convoy arrives in the New Mexico desert carrying Professor Michael Fraser, a British nuclear scientist, and his wife, Helen Fraser. Another scientist, Max Hoffman, is waiting for them, and he takes them into a bunker where they watch the explosion of the first nuclear bomb together.
One year later, a cypher clerk, Aleksei Gorin, steals secrets from the Soviet Embassy in London. He is chased by NKVD agents but manages to escape.
Series 8 of Foyle’s War starts 8pm Sunday 24th March on ITV
