Latest study finds that several cups of coffee
each day is good for one’s health.

The letter Annie Lennox received reminds me of Michael Kitchen’s infamous coffee shop encounter that was so amusingly recounted by Honeysuckle Weeks for the Daily Mail:


Messing about with the photographic files in the archive. What I do on a daily basis with little risk of detection.

New appreciation for High Castle after watching the episode a second time in its entirety since it premiered.

Michael Kitchen will be filming scenes in a caravan again if Rhys Thomas gets his wish.

Reading Hannah Long’s blog reviews of the episodes comprising Foyle’s War S9 was almost more enjoyable than watching:

Michael Kitchen prepares to film this scene:

Foyle’s War S9 to screen on PBS beginning as early as May 1

My favorite article about the end of Foyle’s War is the one from the Sunday Express.

And from the The Spectator (Australia):

Talking of the 1940s, my great sorrow this week was the end of my all-time favourite Sunday evening let’s-settle-back-and-try-and-forget-it’s-Monday-tomorrow drama, Foyle’s War. There never has been an actor quite like Michael Kitchen for expressing a perfectly calibrated moral judgment with the twitch of an eyebrow. The creator of the series, Anthony Horowitz, has already, Conan Doyle-style, brought it back from the dead once. Fingers crossed that he does so again.

Foyle discusses a serious matter with Valentine, but I couldn’t help thinking jelly babies.

Is there something wrong with the coffee, too?

We finally know the context of the scene shot in St. John’s Gardens almost a year ago.

Zooming in on Michael Kitchen’s face is always a good idea.

In the S9 DVD featurette The Truth Behind the Fiction: High Castle, Anthony Horowitz said of this scene:

I wanted to see Foyle in front of a concentration camp. That was the single thought that sparked off the very first episode. It occurred to me that if Foyle was the epitome of good and decency in the period 1940 through to ’46, ’47, then it would be quite interesting to juxtapose him against the symbol of all evil.

What would Foyle do?

Sam is back to using her maiden name while working undercover.  Problems with Adam?  Definitely a less light-hearted atmosphere here compared to the other notable occasion when Sam explained her shortened name to a new employer.

Filming Foyle’s War on Sunday again.  I do believe that’s MK.
