Clever use of tea to service the plot with the added bonus of Foyle shown in a moment of carelessness. Nothing careless, though, about Michael Kitchen’s smooth, articulate motions throughout this scene.

Decency: 49.9%    Evil: 48.4%     Trump and GOP humiliation: 100%


Thank heaven for … Alabama?


It’s a sad state of affairs when fan fiction is created not around dramatic shots like this, but around projections for an egregious tax bill.




During his appearance before the congressional committee yesterday, I’m sure Trump Jr. spoke as truthfully about his family’s dealings with Russia as Marion Greenwood did about her relationship with William Messinger.


‘Tis the season…

June 7, 2014: I miss the lighter side of Foyle.

December 3, 2017: I miss the lighter side of being an American citizen.


Robert Mueller III is our real-life Foyle right now, a tenacious and tight-lipped investigator. “Mueller has moved so swiftly that it has left Trump’s team grasping for answers about how far the probe might ultimately reach.” (The Washington Post, Dec. 1, 2017)

I wish we could say the same for the POTUS. Thousands of “psychiatrists warn about Trump’s mental state“.


Some iambic pentameter from Michael Kitchen’s Foyle as a temporary distraction from the GOP’s latest reprehensible moves that promise to further unravel the fabric of our society, as if “The Self-Destruction of American Democracy” these past ten months under Trump and his administration weren’t enough.

As so often, the greatest fun was discovering what Michael Kitchen might do with Foyle’s next line. Refusing to disappoint, he found the iambic pentameter in ‘Vlessing being the only person implicated in the so-called eternity ring.’ What a trooper! – Andrew Billen, The Times, March 25, 2013


Newly posted on YouTube, BBC Radio’s 1979 production of Love’s Labour’s Lost with Michael Kitchen in the role of King Ferdinand.


A Facebook post from a fan of Foyle’s War that strikes many chords:

You stop believing that, and we might as well not be fighting the war… because you end up like the Nazis.  – DCS Foyle

Grieving for the EPA and the planet. ****


Keith Barron also appeared with Michael Kitchen in Home Run, which along with Benefactors, makes me wish I had a time machine to transport me to England circa 1989.


Newly listed on eBay, a press photo of Michael Kitchen as Michael Faraday in Faraday’s Dream.


(Why was MK’s mirror image used on the DVD cover?)



Gorgeous Alibi production stills on Acorn Media’s pre-order page for the DVD.

The DVD runtime is 2.5 hours, so it seems Acorn’s release is the uncut version! It’s also in widescreen and hopefully remastered with better picture quality. Preview here.

From the New York Times, Nov. 13, 2017:

The infallible drama fodder of betrayal, love and murder gives this mini-series its edge.

If only a new Michael Kitchen project were being featured in the current NYTimes rather than a film that’s 14 years old. Sigh.

Palate cleansing with a bit of Foyle after another news cycle filled with the latest revelations of gross sexual misconduct by men abusing their power. ****


A man who excels at his job yet seems happy to walk away, much to the dismay of many.

Christopher Foyle and Michael Kitchen both.
