Robert Hardy as Henry Beaumont in The German Woman

But that has nothing to do with Greta. Nobody in their right mind could possibly imagine… What I’m trying to say is that if anybody has a grudge against Greta, they- they simply don’t know her. Greta never had any time for Hitler or the Nazis or…

Henry Beaumont’s lying, and Foyle knows it.

Commemorating the passing of yet another one of the distinguished actors who guest starred opposite Michael Kitchen on Foyle’s War.

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.

A devil incarnate, in the form of an angel. Those eyes! And bless that hair. Let’s face it we all had rubbish hair in the 70’s (well if you had been born then of course). It was a pre-requisite of the times.   

Michael Kitchen/Foyle is a beautiful brooder.

The sidelong glance. Sigh.

Bringing down Reginald Walker and son – just another of Foyle’s insignificant contributions to the war effort.

Michael Kitchen’s sidelong glance and characteristic balled hand.  Adorable.

Dapper acknowledgement — part of Foyle’s quiet listening style.

Convinced that the imprisoned German spy, Hans Maier, witnessed the murder of Richard Hunter, Foyle requests a second meeting with him.  At first, Commander Simmons denies Foyle’s request, but a few deftly delivered maneuvers from Foyle, the expert in subtle persuasion, are enough to get Simmons to relax his stance about going against regulations.

I can just see Michael Kitchen and Anthony Horowitz deleting lines written for Foyle in this scene!

Foyle is not impressed with Wing Commander Keller’s excuse for helping to cover up Alastair Graeme’s crimes and incriminating Andrew in the process.

With his interrogation skills, Foyle not only succeeds in getting the presumed German spy to talk, but he also learns that Maier may have valuable information pertaining to his current investigation.
