Robert Mueller III is our real-life Foyle right now, a tenacious and tight-lipped investigator. “Mueller has moved so swiftly that it has left Trump’s team grasping for answers about how far the probe might ultimately reach.” (The Washington Post, Dec. 1, 2017)
There is one man whose every expression, gesture, and utterance leaves me wanting more, and then there is another whom I hope never to see or hear from again after the winner of today’s election is determined.
Foyle, the master of brevity, knows when he’s said enough to bring the guilty party to his knees.
And Michael Kitchen knows how to use his incomparable mouth shrug and eyes to maximum effect.
When a mouth shrug alone isn’t sufficient. Annoying that the video is blocked on YouTube.
The King’s political naiveté proves to be his undoing when he follows through on his ideas and attempts to undermine Urquhart.
Michael Kitchen’s spectacular mouth shrug and squint.
From a review of Foyle’s War S8 on Bostonherald.com:
As for the incomparable Kitchen, he has this wonderful tick where his mouth shrugs, not his shoulders. It’s Foyle’s answer to all sorts of observations and accusations and it’s probably the only “eccentricity” this detective will allow himself to exhibit.
Michael Kitchen joined the cast of A&E for the show’s last two series in 2001-02 playing Jack Turner, a charismatic if somewhat cocky orthopedic surgeon who becomes involved in hospital politics and romance.
I like the way the Daily Mail describes the new addition to the cast:
Returning stars Martin Shaw and Niamh Cusack are joined by smouldering new consultant – and love interest – Michael Kitchen…

In a rare moment of weakness, Foyle can’t pass up the chance to try out Captain Keiffer’s state-of-the-art fishing pole. It’s not often that Foyle allows others to get their way with him.
Loved these scenes. I need some Foyle slash fiction stat. Yeah, I said it. Something that involves lots of good American bourbon, a jazz club in NYC and post-war discussion of trauma, regrets, apologies and good solid “reconciliation.”
