    I just enjoyed the final episode. With only a few moments of bad writing, I found the period dress and measured storytelling of another part of the war very satisfying. Now I must buy some Macclesfield ties.

    I love this show. We have the first two seasons' DVD sets and I anticipate buying the rest.

    Unfortunately I missed most of the show last night. But I did catch the last half hour or so.

    Overall, this show had some amazing writing, great stories, great clothes, and a phenomenal Foyle. I love his gruff way of dealing with the bad guys. "Well, I have a record of it here in my pocket." Classic.

    Big fan here, also. My favorite aspect is that he is a good man -- none of the half-hearted semi-morality we must suffer with in the standard televised fare. Further, he is a rational yet he understands the quiet, important things about people, which is a rare combination.

    From an SF standpoint, he wore my favorite variety of suit -- the three piece, SBPL.

    Sad it's over.

    I haven't seen the final ep yet, but I wanted to like the recent ones more than I did.

    SBPL- translation please? It's always a little sad when a good effort ends. It's like reading everything by a now passed author. But it's better than riding on popularity, like those insufferable MASH storylines, or JRR Tolkien's shopping lists bound up in embossed books and translated into elvish.

    Ah! I got the first part. Would peak lapels compliment a 6' 2" slim ( not skinny) frame?

    Was this a Masterpiece Theater presentation in the United States? I think I may have caught one episode and really enjoyed it.

    It was on the Mystery seeries on PBS. There were several seasons of 3- 5 episodes each

    Sure. It's the not so skinny who has to be more selective about peaks. Note that there are some varieties of the peak -- some point out, like mine, and some point more upwards. It's all what you like. ~ Huntsman

    Thanks much! It's my favorite, an RLPL unbelievable splurge I bought from the excellent Holdfast. And the fabric has such a wonderful hand.

    Oh, I didn't realize that is yours. Wow. Very very nice. Worth every penny.
