Milner (Anthony Howell) was a policeman before the war; he left to enlist in the army. He was involved in the British Norwegian Campaign and lost a leg in Trondheim. In episode one, he is seen recovering in hospital. Foyle encourages him to rejoin the police. Milner's relationship with his wife Jane is returned to throughout the series; she does not seem to have come to terms with his injury. After a long separation, during which Milner has begun a relationship with Edith Ashford, Jane returns from her family in Wales ("Bleak Midwinter") to attempt to begin again with Milner, but she is murdered before this can come to pass. In a conversation just before Jane's death, Milner tells Edith that he has no family. In the intended final episode "All Clear", Edith gives birth to a baby girl, to be called Clementine after the prime minister's wife. At the beginning of series 7, Milner has been promoted to Detective Inspector with jurisdiction for the Brighton area.
