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.

Much of France has something else to celebrate today.



There’s official incompetence of the sort Foyle routinely encounters, and then there’s Trump incompetence.

I don’t think we’ve reached peak Trump. The normal incompetent person flails and stammers and is embarrassed about it. But the true genius at incompetence like our president flails and founders and is too incompetent to realize his own incompetence. …Trump’s ignorance is not just an absence [of knowledge]; it is a rich, intricate and entirely separate universe of negative information, a sort of fertile intellectual antimatter with its own gravitational pull. – David Brooks, “The Coming Incompetence Crisis

Anatomy of a smile.



A nice photo from the original foyleswar.com site showing a scene from The French Drop being filmed next to the lake at Balls Park College during the spring of 2004.

Tugging at his waistcoat, Foyle listens with interest to the biting banter among the operatives at SOE.

Springing forward with an extra pick-me-up.



Since pdx144 has been sending me fun links on Martin Shaw, I promised her more of Robert and Jack, here enjoying a smoke while Christine looks on.

(More Martin Shaw posts here.)

Drs. Jack Turner and Christine Fletcher meet for the first time.  Her eyes say it all.

Ooh er, don’t they just. And who can blame her? steviecat123

Oh, sorry, I forgot my lines…gulp! – pdx144

A table height adjustment is necessary when Jack hands over the surgery to Robert.

Nearly fell over when I first saw this scene. Too funny. – pdx144

You’ve got to love him.  It’s not even as if Martin Shaw is that much taller.

From The Guardian:

A & E – formerly known as Always And Everyone but that made things too easy – has an entertaining double act in Michael Kitchen and Martin Shaw, playing surgeons. Two serious actors though, of course, not at their most serious here. Shaw gazes benevolently over his spectacles and Kitchen twinkles wickedly over his mask. As Lord Olivier used to say, “It’s all in the eyes, dear boy.” Admire their acting as they both pretend to smoke. It takes years to perfect that sort of aplomb.

Despite his misgivings, Foyle agrees to temporarily withhold information to help the war effort, and as a result, his hopes for a transfer are dashed again. Hilda Pierce owes him big time:
