“Brookie” laughs at Foyle’s picks for the football polls, but true to form, it’s Foyle who will have the last laugh.

The random system may not be a bad approach to choosing a March Madness bracket this year.


Sentimental Saturday.

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.

Foyle and Sam experience firsthand the danger posed by domestic government officials conducting shady deals with Russia.

Color and mood befitting this Saturday spent in the warmth of SoCal.

Decency: 49.9%    Evil: 48.4%     Trump and GOP humiliation: 100%

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.

Foyle’s War press photos from the Facebook page of KBYU Eleven.

The look of Foyle putting two and two together.

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:

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 wonder what the winning caption for this photo was:

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.

In recognition of International Women’s Day…

The Women’s Land Army hostel offers Sam, Foyle, and Milner a bed for the night and a hearty meal. That tall glass of fresh milk Foyle’s enjoying would have been a treat in wartime England, but today I don’t think there’d be many takers for milk with dinner.

Peter Capaldi plays the communist leader Foyle is ordered to investigate in A War of Nerves. Who will be the next Doctor Who? Came across some discussion from 1996 about how Michael Kitchen would have made a good Doctor.

Comfort food for distressing times.

Sam and Sgt. Brooke talk turkey with Foyle.

Leave it to Foyle to work out a satisfactory arrangement.

A couple of photos taken during the filming of Casualties of War and All Clear from lastminute.com’s blog post on Hastings.

The scene as it appears in All Clear with Michael Kitchen now walking closest to the street and wearing Foyle’s coat – a must on a breezy day 🙂 :

Wouldn’t mind playing the part of the extra brushing past him.
