In recognition of International Women’s Day…

The Women’s Land Army hostel offers Sam, Foyle, and Milner a bed for the night and a hearty meal. I wouldn’t have guessed that Foyle was the milk with dinner type.

From her first encounter with Foyle Barbara Hicks wastes no opportunity to denigrate men.  If anyone can change her opinion, it’s Foyle.

Foyle gradually gets around to telling Tom the truth behind his mother’s disappearance.

More swiveling from Foyle while in interrogation mode.

Turn! Turn! Turn!

Foyle pivots and tilts through his first encounter with Barbara Hicks.

Outspoken women are well represented in this episode.

Michael Kitchen makes even the most mundane dialogue interesting to watch.

Foyle inquires after Barbara Hicks.

If I thought Dr. Jack Turner was working in our orthopaedic theatres I would be going back to work on Monday skipping and jumping, with a song in my heart and volunteering for theatre duty :))

Yes, J, seeing these eyes across the operating table would make returning from vacation a lot easier.  Oh well, hope you have a good work week just the same.

If I thought Jack Turner was working in our orthopedic surgery, I’d break my own bones.

Thanks for keeping me in stitches, steviecat123 and pdx144.

Lovely, smiley, dimpled, crinkly, blue eyed DCS Foyle :)) .

Unfortunately, we can’t really see the blue eyes here, though.

In my mind’s eye I saw them, honest 😉

Oh, I don’t doubt it.  I can well imagine them myself.

Two decades after Love Song, a grieving woman again catches the attention of a character played by Michael Kitchen. To my immense disappointment, his comforting presence this time doesn’t lead to romance, despite the obvious attraction between Foyle and Barbara Hicks.

I always wish something would have happened or she would have returned.

It’s still not too late for her to return… hint, hint to AH for FWS9… assuming Stella Gonet wouldn’t be a spoilsport like Julian Ovenden and refuse to reprise her role.  (Seriously, I wish Mr. Ovenden all the best in his career, but I will never get over the complete lack of Andrew in later episodes of FW due to the actor’s “unavailability”.)

I was hoping in the last series that he might run into her in London. Don’t think we’ll ever get a romance for CF, but a nice quiet dinner would be nice. They softened each other. Would love to see more of it. With the absence of Andrew and his relationship with Sam… 

I couldn’t agree with you more!  Perhaps a twitter campaign directed at AH is in order.  : )

I don’t think Foyle had reason to crack a smile even once in the final episode of FWS8 last night.  It was grim through and through, and had me yearning for relatively sunny scenes like this of a more content Foyle who isn’t entirely disillusioned by his line of work.

Revisiting this beautifully acted scene full of tenderness, pain, and compassion.  In his usual thoughtful manner, Foyle doesn’t rush to comfort Barbara Hicks, but takes a moment to deliberate first before silently offering her his shoulder to cry on.

Hmmm, since my enthusiasm for the The Four Beauties doesn’t seem to be matched by most, I’ll give it a break and post instead on my favorite partners in crime fighting — looking down, looking up, and looking at the boss’s tongue? I wish all three could be together as a team again in Series 8.

Thirty some years after Beasts, Michael Kitchen’s tongue still punctuates his unique style of acting.
