Michael Kitchen returns in a new series of Foyle’s War on ITV
ITV, Acorn Media, and Eleventh Hour Films today confirmed a new series of Foyle’s War starring Michael Kitchen and created by celebrated novelist and screenwriter Anthony Horowitz.
Set during the early period after World War Two, Foyle will focus his attention on the world of espionage as he gathers secret intelligence in support of Britain’s security, defence and the Government’s foreign and economic policies.
The stories will range from Foyle identifying highly placed atomic spies to a true story of government corruption. A world of transition where the values and certainties of the war have given way to austerity, exhaustion and doubts about the direction the new government is taking.
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.
Said Michael Kitchen: “It’s great to be wanted and a pleasure to be back.”No comments
