National Tell a Joke Day
This is too cruel, Acorn DVD, to show Michael Kitchen telling an uproariously funny joke on the set of Enemy Fire without letting us in on it! (Clips are from “The Making of Foyle’s War, Part 1”.)
(How sad that director Jeremy Silberston passed away barely two years after these joyful moments of him here with the cast were captured on film.)
I love watching Foyle when he’s questioning someone who’s clearly evading the truth, lying through his teeth, and hiding criminal activity – someone like any given member of the Trumplican party.
Can’t believe it’s as hot today in London as it is here at home.
Losing myself in the wonders of Blu-Ray.
From an interview with Naomi Frederick published in Performing Women: Stand-Ups, Strumpets and Itinerants:
The last television role, where I played a Wren, was in one of the Foyle’s War episodes. The writing in that series is strong and there’s also a lovely historical element, which gives it immediately another layer of interest. I enjoyed the writing in that, which made the role worthwhile.
This scene alone would have made the role worthwhile for me.
May the royal newlyweds enjoy a marriage as long and happy as William and Philippa’s.
At the alarming rate that far-right judges are being appointed to lower-court benches, it won’t be long before we lose a vital bastion against Trumpism.
From The New Yorker:
McConnell didn’t just protect a Supreme Court seat for the next President; he basically shut down the entire confirmation process for all of Obama’s federal-judgeship nominees for more than a year. It’s the vacancies that accumulated during this time — more than a hundred of them — that Trump’s team is now working efficiently to fill.
Fuming after reading about the latest developments. The two parties are not the same!
Why didn’t any of my teachers look (and talk) like Michael Kitchen in The Browning Version?
It’s a lovely thought, but I’m sure I’d have been so mesmerised by all that charm that I wouldn’t have learned a thing. Wouldn’t have minded being Teacher’s pet, though. – anonymous

A devil incarnate, in the form of an angel. Those eyes! And bless that hair. Let’s face it we all had rubbish hair in the 70’s (well if you had been born then of course). It was a pre-requisite of the times. – steviecat123
