CRANK UP THE VCR:

FOYLE IN A NEW ERA : New episodes coming to MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! on PBS in summer 2013 (PBS, September 12, 2012)

Starring Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks and created by celebrated novelist and 
screenwriter Anthony Horowitz, the series will see Foyle and loyal friend Sam (Weeks) in 
a new post-war era as their worlds shift into those of MI5.

With many stories based on real life cases, Foyle will focus his attention on the world of 
espionage as he gathers secret intelligence in support of Britain's security, defense and the 
Government's foreign and economic policies.

In his new role as a Senior Intelligence Officer, Foyle discovers that the British 
establishment is rife with communist sympathisers and traitors. In this delicately balanced 
period in history, 1946-47, Foyle will use all his intelligence, guile and intuition to keep 
the country safe.

Meanwhile, Sam is happily married to local MP Adam and finding her feet as a wife with 
a daunting role in local politics. Reunited with Foyle, she is also offered a surprising new 
working role.

Three x 120 minute films have been ordered from Eleventh Hour Films, the production 
company founded by producer Jill Green.

What makes Kitchen's portrayal; of Foyle great is that he uses a meek demeanor to mask a genuine moral ferocity.  It will be interesting to see if they're really willing to turn that loose on communism and fellow travelers.
