Foyle's War: A Lesson in Murder: Michael Kitchen: playing golf

Foyle’s also a bad golfer. I think it’s a wonderful game but it’s very time consuming. My eldest and I play once a year and we’ve never had enough balls to get round!

A harrowing separation that no parent or child should have to suffer, but at least one could argue that Operation Pied Piper was carried out with the intent of protecting the welfare of children during a desperate time of war. No such argument can be made about the current Trump administration border policy.

Great fun listening to this trio of wonderfully lucid actors bounce repartee off one another in the far more lighthearted setting of Noel Coward’s comedy play, Design for Living. Michael Kitchen, Cheryl Campbell, and Alex Jennings co-starred in the 1991 BBC Radio production as the three artistic neurotics who find themselves caught up in a ménage à trois.

Iconic words.


Foyle's War: The White Feather: Michael Kitchen: I'm a police officer.

From a review by tendays komyathy posted on swapadvd.com:

“My name is Foyle. I’m a police officer.” No badge is shown or papers presented while so introducing himself. Such would be superfluous though as Kitchen’s Foyle, in mannerisms, demeanor, as well as the way his carries himself, makes it rather apparent that he is in law enforcement.

Is it any wonder the crooked cop didn’t know what hit him until it was too late?

No words for the senselessness of Carlo’s death.

It’s the epitome of Michael Kitchen’s performance in this series — knowing what to say when words are warranted and saying little or nothing when they are not.tendays komyathy


With this frigid February drawing to a close, I’m hoping soon to be doing a lot less of this:

Another pair of time lapse images of Michael Kitchen from Love Song (1985) and Foyle’s War (2002).  Serious cerebral sexiness.

It’s such a simple act of leaning forward then back, separated by two decades, but utterly mesmerising and I just don’t want to take my eyes off him.

Not much escapes Foyle’s penetrating gaze.

The disarming smile.

The touch of amusement in Foyle’s expression that’s often there when Sam is in his presence.
