UXB - A Foyle’s War fanfic by Wolseley37

Wolseley37 out-Horowitzes canon in this wonderful, intelligently-written correction of the plot of Foyle’s War Series 8

1946. In post-war London tensions are rising: between Foyle and his MI-5 superiors, who expect him to ignore the law, between Sam and her far too busy husband, MP Adam Wainwright, and even between two close colleagues whose new roles create a different personal dynamic.

 In a weak moment, Sam makes a simple but seismic confession: “I should have gone to America with you."  Shortly afterwards, the unthinkable happens.

Don’t miss this clever, utterly absorbing story – a masterpiece of period research and of telling.  In voice; in character; in denial; and ultimately… there’s no fleeing the inevitable.

Rating: T

…and that T stands for Tremendous.  Forget all other Foyle’s War fanfic. THIS is how it’s properly done.

Re'stay':There is a 'special'written by Wolseley37(UXB).Wouldn't that be a great film?

Been saying this for some time. And, though UXB begins with Adam’s infidelity during Series 8, it’s still spot on, given that Sam catches Adam in flagrante in Ep 1 of Series 9! It would easily transpose - and it’s the cleverest “correction of canon” I’ve yet seen.

When the last episode of Foyle airs on Sunday, it’s time to read UXB:
