Came across a blog post from 2008 in praise of Foyle’s War and Michael Kitchen with this marvelous comment by “Juliet” underneath:
… I wholeheartedly agree with the consensus on Michael Kitchen. He is quite extraordinarily watchable and has one of those voices which affects places quite far removed from the ears! He was a brilliant Prince-Charles-alike in ‘To Play the King’, but the role which haunts me most was his portrayal of the sinister ‘gardener’ in Andrew Davies’s perfect adaptation of Elizabeth Jane Howard’s ‘Falling’ (with Penelope Wilton, also at her very best) – where he managed to be both deeply menacing and impossibly desirable at the same time. ‘Tour de force’ would not be overstating the case.
