The vast majority of the country has not seen a day like it, the moment a crowned monarch passes on, the moment when pomp and ceremony, of tradition and unpalatable truths are laid out and given a public airing; to have a constitutional monarchy is to expect that nothing would be simple following a death in the family.

Agatha Christie is such a staple of television and film that sometimes it can be hard to overlook or forgive when an adaptation has not quite hit the high marks expected of it, sometimes you have let it wash over you and remember the good times, when a marvellous suspense mystery would have the viewer glowing with anticipation and the television schedules would be moved accordingly.

All good things come to an end, some with a blast and some with an understated whimper. For Foyle’s War to contain both is quite possibly the single most maddening reason for this very successful police drama to finally come to its closure.

Christopher Foyle’s war is never ending and post war Britain must be thankful that there was at least one honest man around who was willing to go up against so called authority in which to get to the absolute truth.

With the erstwhile Christopher Foyle, perhaps one of the most reliable and honest detectives to have graced the television screens in over a decade, being at the beck and call of the shadowy world of MI5, it is no wonder that he finds himself having to stoop to a low level to get the information he needs in order to tie up, not just one small mystery that he would have relished in his Hasting days but seemingly an overabundance of inter-related murders, abduction and covertness that must be making his level-headed swim in the aptly titled episode of Foyle’s War, The Cage.
