Another fool in Foyle’s midst.



In her first credited role, Emily Blunt got to act opposite Michael Kitchen and wear a nifty beekeeper’s outfit. Amazing that the real experts in beekeeping require little in the way of protective wear, even when dealing with a swarm of 40,000 bees.



“I was injured in the First War – not very badly – but I was young, alone, frightened. She was a volunteer nurse.”
