This drama series set in the aftermath of World War II returns tonight for its eight season, which as usual will consist of three episodes. It's been almost a year and a half since we last seen Foyle on the box, but the new series will take up just two weeks after where the last one ended. Britain is still settling back into peacetime and Foyle is looking forward to retirement. Of course, that's not to be as his life is once more thrown into turmoil when Samantha's employer is found dead. It's not even a simple 'whodunnit' either as the investigation soon brings to light a conspiracy and an international cover-up which, if exposed, could bring down the British government. No pressure then Foyle.
