Addicted to the BBC

From comedy to costumed dramas, the BBC has an exemplary catalog of fantastic film. BBC mysteries are some of my particular favorites (okay, after the 1995 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice) with such series as Inspector Lynley Mysteries and Foyle’s War. For World War II aficionados, Foyle’s War provides more than a compelling mystery in each of its episodes. It shows the impact of the war on the home front as well as the DVDs of the series offering production notes of the facts behind the historic themes. In a time of war, the conflict between doing what is legally right and what is going to help the win the war can have a high cost. Michael Kitchen, plays Foyle with superb subtlety and wit, and the characters of the other cast members are equal to the task of providing a variety of viewpoints for the time.
