From an interview with Margaret Atwood in the Calgary Herald:

Asked if she binge-watches series, Atwood said she does, but with boxed DVD sets.

“What we just finished was an English series called ‘Foyle’s War,’ set in (the Second World War). It’s very good,” she said.

She added with her signature wry wit: “People of our generation like it because we recognize all the outfits. We were there.”

“Foyle’s War” is a far cry from “The Handmaid’s Tale“, but each in its way is scarily relevant today at a time when the dark undercurrents of society are coming to the fore.
