    Foyle's War, Set 6 is a 3-DVD set collecting three episodes of the
    compelling British mysteries set in the British coastal town of
    Hastings, shortly after the devastation of World War II. DCS
    Christopher Foyle is a police investigator whose yearning for
    retirement is belayed by unfolding cases of military racism,
    international conflict, even an accused traitor unwilling to resist
    the sentence of the gallows. The episodes are "The Russian House", in
    which the escape of a Russian POW brings calamity and murder, igniting
    division between Foyle and a former subordinate; "Killing Time" about
    the prospect of absolute disaster involving African American GIs who
    want to return home; and "The Hide", a tale about a young woman's
    murder and an accused traitor who will not defend himself. Superb
    acting is the hallmark of this captivating series, highly recommended
    especially for aficionados of British mysteries. 300 minutes,
    widescreen, SDH subtitles.
