Trivia / Foyle's War

  • The Danza: Greville Woods is played by Simon Woods in "Enemy Fire".
  • Doubling for London: Most of the exteriors in the London-set series 8 are shot in Dublin.
  • Fake American: Most, though not all, of the American characters are played by British actors.
  • Name's the Same: Dr. Novak attempts suicide because of "what Worth said." It was not the just-murdered Dr. Worth with whom Novak was angry, though. It was a BBC journalist named Worth, reporting on the concentration camps. Novak, Jewish, lost his family there.
  • Un-Canceled: When ITV decided to stop making the series and make two final episodes, one each for 1944 and 1945, there was rather a lot of complaints. In the event it was not only given a concluding season, ending on V-E Day, but subsequently renewed for three more seasons set in the war's aftermath.
