An assessment that continues to ring true today, especially with a divisive hatemonger and cretin leading this country, so it’s good to be reminded by former President Obama in his speech yesterday that “[we’ve] got to embrace the longer and more optimistic view of history…” in spite of “a politics that threatens to turn good people away from the kind of collective action that has always driven human progress.”

Sam managed to survive her bout with deadly infectious disease. The rest of us may not be so lucky, given Trump’s determination to cut programs vital to our ability to stem a pandemic, the real threat to national security.

Surely Foyle was more sympathetic, though, after hearing the circumstances of the illicit relationship.

Another go at this lovely, difficult-to-capture scene.

You’re embarrassing him, Joe.

The billowing coat is magnificent.

Foyle and Joe have a heart to heart about Sam as they walk up “Steep Lane” to Foyle’s house. Afterwards, the real-life Christopher Foyle makes a cameo appearance. A new article in The Daily Mail offers some fun facts about the house on Croft Road in Hastings, which is still on the market. A potential B&B? For me, it would be kind of a letdown to stay there, since the interior scenes of Foyle’s home were filmed elsewhere.

A screen cap from Bad Blood to celebrate the Year of the Sheep.


Michael Kitchen joined the cast of A&E for the show’s last two series in 2001-02 playing Jack Turner, a charismatic if somewhat cocky orthopedic surgeon who becomes involved in hospital politics and romance.

I like the way the Daily Mail describes the new addition to the cast:

Returning stars Martin Shaw and Niamh Cusack are joined by smouldering new consultant – and love interest – Michael Kitchen…

No one delivers a threat quite like Foyle.  Ever the well-mannered gentleman, he doesn’t even raise his voice, but it’s abundantly clear that he means business. The poor guard is no match.

Dapper acknowledgement — part of Foyle’s quiet listening style.

Recovering from her anthrax infection, Sam continues her conversation with Foyle when he visits her in the hospital. Foyle’s answer to her question is the assurance she needs to come to a decision.

Sam’s father, meanwhile, is nowhere to be seen while her life is on the line. Good that she decided to reject Joe, as I don’t imagine her father would have given his blessing to her moving to America.

Foyle notices that Sam isn’t her usual talkative self as she contemplates Joe’s marriage proposal. Michael Kitchen looks like he’s holding in his laughter at the funny dialogue between Foyle and Sam. His face in the final frame is priceless.
