In the NETFLIX series, people are seen carrying a small cardboard box with a string shoulder strap. What gives?


A gun in the hand is worth more than ten policemen on the phone.
The American Revolution was carried out by a group of gun toting religious zealots.

Maybe, but the fear was poison gas, what with the last time ol' Jerry got frisky, he used stupid amounts of it.

Saw that recently in the series Home Fires that was on PBS. Never explained, but I figured that's what it was. No resources wasted on a fancy case for it.

BTW welcome to Foyle's War. Our favorite TV series, bar none.

I also greatly enjoy Foyle. It is a very well done series.

It has been reported that Michael Kitchen, who plays Foyle, actually requested that he be given fewer lines for the series. From what I understand, he wanted to use his silence to draw out conversation from the others he was investigating.

All of which reminds me I need to go re-watch it.

Foyle's War has been promoted to me by Netflix for the longest time. I recently sat down and watched the first episode. It takes a little getting used to the "pace", but I was soon hooked.
