Foyle and Sam listen to Churchill’s announcement of Germany’s surrender.
Watched Darkest Hour on the flight home and felt like watching this FW scene as a bookend to the film.

Full merrily the humble-bee doth sing,
Till he hath lost his honey and his sting;
And being once subdued in armed tail,
Sweet honey and sweet notes together fail.

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.
The questionable professional ethics of Foyle’s ride companions are on his mind while they zip through the pastoral surroundings of Hastings in War Games and the austere streets of London in The Eternity Ring. Professional ethics certainly don’t concern Trump and his appointees as they daily violate with little repercussion the rules and laws governing their offices.

There’s something to be said for slow news.
Evasive responses to be followed later by resignation from his post.
An all too familiar story out of Washington these days, the latest involving “one of these PR types”.
A time when murder investigations rarely involved a multitude of bullets (and victims) at the crime scene.
Legend has it that tea was discovered when tree leaves blew into the cup of just boiled water that the Chinese emperor, Shennong, was drinking — about as serendipitous as Foyle knocking over a bag of tea into a basin of water!
Clever use of tea to service the plot with the added bonus of Foyle shown in a moment of carelessness. Nothing careless, though, about Michael Kitchen’s smooth, articulate motions throughout this scene.
Foyle pays another visit to Joyce Corrigan to deliver bad news about her son.
Enjoyed watching Emma Fielding last night playing a considerably larger part, Miss Galindo, a character as outspoken and right-minded as Foyle.

each day is good for one’s health.
The silent exchange between Foyle and Andrew speaks volumes about the closeness of their relationship.
“Dad. It’s good to see you.”
Exceedingly good to see Michael Kitchen play Dad to Julian Ovenden’s Andrew Foyle.
As I tackle the weeds in my yard today…
According to a blurb in The Times (Jan. 29, 1994), in preparation for the filming of Dandelion Dead 2000 dandelions were gathered from the Gloucestershire countryside and “reared, out of season, with more care than most prize orchids receive…” Each stem was kept either in a fridge or under artificial light. Seems few of those dandelions made it on screen, as far as I can tell. The producers of Doctor Zhivago certainly got more bang for the buck from the 4000+ daffodils that they ordered.
A specimen from my weedpatch of a lawn:
Wish I had a garden like this, complete with adorable actor picking a rose:
I wonder if filming this scene brought back 20-year-old memories for Michael Kitchen.
Closest thing to a rose in my yard.

And later he unveils to them his groundbreaking electric motor based on electromagnetic rotation:
The open dish of mercury, though. Yikes. Faraday’s regular exposure to mercury while conducting experiments could be why he suffered from headaches and memory loss later in life.
Celebrating Franz Schubert’s birthday today with these scenes from Oliver Twist in which Mr. Brownlow demonstrates his change of heart toward Rose’s suitor, Dr. Losberne, with the help of Schubert’s Fantasie in F Minor, D.940.
Watched E4 of Victoria last night and thought of Brownlow’s words throughout Victoria and Albert’s duet. 🙂
