As the Iron Curtain descends across Europe, DCI Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) returns from America to a country in the grip of the Cold War and in the care of MI5.

Michael Kitchen stars as Christopher Foyle, the straightforward sleuth who, along with his loyal friend Sam (Honeysuckle Weeks), is drawn into a web of Russian spies, ex-Nazis, and atomic secrets.

For the first time since 2010, Foyle's War returns to MASTERPIECE Mystery! In Series VII's three riveting all-new episodes — The Eternity Ring (Sep. 15), The Cage (Sept. 22) and Sunflower (Sept. 29), Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks revisit their signature roles as the serious, steadfast sleuth and his loyal friend. But this time, they face cases set against a backdrop of a new war that is less explosive – but no less deadly – than the previous.

The Eternity Ring

1945:- A group of scientists observe the testing of an atomic bomb at Los Alamos in the New Mexico desert. A year later Foyle (Michael Kitchen) is approached by Hilda Pierce (Ellie Haddington), now working for MI5. Her boss Sir William Chambers (Nicholas Jones) explains that a Russian defector, Gorin (Dylan Charles), has supplied them with news of the Eternity Ring, a group of Soviet sympathisers bent on betraying Britain's atomic secrets. Sam (Honeysuckle Weeks) is now working as a secretary to Professor Fraser (Stephen Boxer), one of the suspects who was present at Los Alamos and Foyle meets up with her, being introduced to Fraser and his colleague Max Hoffman (Ken Bones), a Polish communist who escaped Nazi persecution. Both work at Armwell Atomic Research Station. Hoffman connects Sam to Foyle and she is sacked but when uranium is stolen from Armwell and the thief murdered she joins Foyle in investigating the Eternity Ring - as well as helping husband Adam (Daniel Weyman) stand for election as a Labour MP.

Guest stars include Ken Bones, Stephen Boxer, Kate DuchĂȘne, Dylan Charles, Tim McMullan, Joe Duttine, Ellie Haddington, Nicholas Jones, Daniel Weyman, Jennifer Hennessy, Sam Clemmett, Gyuri Sarossy, Nathan Gordon, Christopher Fulford, Jeremy Swift, Philip Judge, Gabrielle Lloyd and Emma Lowe.
