Tomorrow, Sunday May 9th, PBS's Masterpiece Mystery! airs the second episode of the sixth series of Foyle's War. (Check your local listings to confirm the time, but it is likely to air opposite Jesse Stone: No Remorse, so set your DVRs.)
Titled "Killing Time", the episode stars series regulars Michael Kitchen as Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle and Honeysuckle Weeks as Samantha "Sam" Stewart, but does not feature Anthony Howell's character Paul Milner.
Synopsis: If the idea was that the end of the war would bring everyone together, then the disheartening reality is sinking in. DCS Foyle and Sam see a swell of prejudice as black American GIs stationed near Bristol are fighting a war against intolerance. Mandy Dean, a young, single mother, has trouble finding a home, ostracized even by her own family. To make matters worse, a random crime spree seems to be targeting Bristol. After all that suffering in the war, has nothing changed? Mandy finds relief in the capable hands of Sam, now helping to operate a guest house run by her budding love interest Adam Wainwright. But when Mandy's ex-boyfriend, conscientious objector Tommy Duggan returns to find the baby he didn't father, the simmering tension in Hastings turns deadly. Foyle steps in, and before it is over, he'll confront the US Army as well as the deep roots of bigotry.
DVD sets of the previous series are available on our website Mysteries on TV: Foyle's War, as individual sets and as the complete set, Foyle's War: From Dunkirk to VE-Day. The three episodes from Foyle's War Set Six will be available on DVD on June 1st, and may be pre-ordered.
