Just read Anthony Horowitz’s Foyle’s War “mystery” published in the Daily Mail. Saddens me to think of Foyle as a frail, old man in pain. 😦 I had been hoping for a story set shortly after Sam has her baby.

Lovely day for bridge walking — before more record rainfall arrives tomorrow.

Agree. Just finished listening to Ian McEwan read his novella, On Chesil Beach, which also contains wonderful descriptions of music.

BBC Radio’s abridged version of Amsterdam is a treat.
Fun to hear another instance of Michael Kitchen doing

Brimstone and Treacle: Michael Kitchen: closeup

…if there’s one body of work that’s the starting point for Brimstone and Treacle, it’s Mary Poppins. The play’s title is taken from PL Travers’s books, and much of Martin’s dialogue could have been lifted from Julie Andrews. Who else says “spick and span” unironically?

Updated some gifs from Fall of Eagles which made me think of Maybury, the other BBC series in which Patrick Stewart and Michael Kitchen appeared together. Delighted to discover that a video recording from 1981 containing an extended preview of Maybury was uploaded to YouTube some months ago. In the piece Patrick Stewart discusses the new show and mentions some of the notable guest stars including MK, who played Martin, a lawyer whose wife (Suzanne Bertish) suffers from agoraphobia.

Didn’t know there was a second volume to the government climate report released last November. It gives whole new meaning to Black Friday:

Foyle's War: The Cage: Michael Kitchen: Does no one ever read these things?

Actually, I’m not convinced Trump can read above a third-grade level, while key members of his administration are determined to keep their heads deeply buried in the sand as they wage war against science and the environment.

…she dwells without evident compunction in a gaudier fairyland of grander fictions. There’s no panic. No squeak. Just that repulsed expression, as if a foul odor had wafted in and she knew – just knew – that the culprit was CNN. …Sure, every administration indulges in self-serving narratives and laughable spin. But this administration takes both to perverse summits, and Sanders is its mountaineer extraordinaire.

Positive reviews for Michael Kitchen’s fly fishing technique on flyfishingforum.com:

Several times in “Foyle’s War” Foyle is shown fishing, in coat and tie (or vest and tie), and hippers. The actor, Michael Kitchen, looks like he might have at least a nodding acquaintance with the rod. The stream doesn’t look like much, but we know how that goes. I have to say, I like the coat and tie part of it. It’s such a good show I am inclined to overlook any lack of technique. – patrick62

Just started watching Foyle’s War yesterday. Was pleased to see the fishing moments. The guy can actually pretty much cast the cane rod he’s using. – gt05254
