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.
Michael Kitchen/Foyle is a beautiful brooder.
The sidelong glance. Sigh.
You stop believing that, and we might as well not be fighting the war… because you end up like the Nazis. – DCS Foyle
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.
