Is their anyone here who watches "Foyle's War"? I think it's a really good show and I'm glad that they are showing new episodes (sixth season)...But, does anyone know when the next episode will be televised?

I too am in the "states"...But I guess that "ITV" (in the UK) has shown the first episode of the "sixth" season..."Plan of Attack" is the first of three <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">new episodes</span> (don't ask me how I have seen it, but I have...) but I can't find any information about when the next episode will be aired...I'm hopping that one of our "English Brethren" has heard when it will be on (or has any information about the sixth season)...

I've been meaning to check it out. My parents love the show, they rented all the DVDs through netflix to catch up.

Another Yank here and my wife and I both enjoy it very much. I think we have seen all the episodes of series 1 through 4. Waiting for PBS to show season 5.

I love the show...as much as the world has changed sense "World War Two" as Americans we can imagine what life must have been like here during the war...It's a lot of fun watching a "detective" story set against the back-drop of England during WW2...It seems to me that the show is filled with little "glimpses of everyday life" in England during the war...fun, fun, fun...

I realize that this show will not be everyones "cup of tea" but for the "mature" members of the "IL2" community (who enjoy a good story...without the MTV editing) who enjoy a good story, its top notch...

..... If you only knew what the usual US TV programming is like, you'd understand why anyone with an IQ of more than two digits looks forward to shows like Foyle's War, Prime Suspect, I Claudius, etc.

Let's put it this way, American TV has gone steadily downhill since the "Gong Show".

The Actress on the right has a name up there with the likes of "Peaches *and cream* Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof" hers being "Honeysuckle Weeks"

We English have a habit of giving girls really daft names, "Minnie Driver" springs to mind.

And the attention to detail is superb, even down to the very correct short back and sides haircuts.

And everyone wore hats ......

A great series.

I remember during my first trip to the UK that I didn't feel like reading a book and I wanted to watch some tele. We were staying someplace that only had the BBC stations (no cable). The best thing on was a documentary on the large amount of dog poo in one of the central London parks. Believe me, it was far, far, far better than the other choices. Don't think every show over there is a Foyle's War!

Alas that is so true.
Swamped with pop idol, x factor, type reality (yet so unreal) dross.
When I see what's popular on tele I really wonder if democracy is such a good idea. I mean should someone who likes big brother (for instance) be allowed to vote for a government?

Middle name "Cab" by any chance?

I first saw the Gong Show when visiting Canada in the 1970s and it really amused my then 26 yr old brain. Somehow vaguely MontyPythonesque, for want of a better word.

More importantly, should someone who takes part be allowed to vote at all . . .

I never will understand why anyone would want to watch a programme featuring numpties with the mental age and personality of a wing nut, sitting around muttering or doing nothing, or going to the toilet, or arguing about nothing of any importance. This is entertainment? For whom? Obviously other sad souls who similarly don't have a life. I just don't get it.
