National Tell a Joke Day
This is too cruel, Acorn DVD, to show Michael Kitchen telling an uproariously funny joke on the set of Enemy Fire without letting us in on it! (Clips are from “The Making of Foyle’s War, Part 1”.)
(How sad that director Jeremy Silberston passed away barely two years after these joyful moments of him here with the cast were captured on film.)
Replying to a Data Lounge query on cozy British murder mysteries, one forum member wrote:
…an interesting lesson on writing and showrunning. Foyle’s War should work outside of the premise. Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks are both good actors and their characters were interesting. Yet once WW2 was taken out of the equation, the story wasn’t interesting anymore. I think part of it was that having Weeks’ character marry put a wedge in the boss/employee relationship and the show just fell to pieces after that. Thank goodness they always kept the relationship as father/daughter. If they had Weeks have romantic feelings for Foyle, it would have ruined the entire show including the episodes already broadcast.
Color and mood befitting this Saturday spent in the warmth of SoCal.

“Thank heaven for … Alabama?“
I wish we could say the same for the POTUS. Thousands of “psychiatrists warn about Trump’s mental state“.
A man who excels at his job yet seems happy to walk away, much to the dismay of many.
Christopher Foyle and Michael Kitchen both.
The look of Foyle putting two and two together.
I wonder what the winning caption for this photo was:
