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.

Michael Kitchen, Rowena Miller/Kitchen, and their son, Jack, attend Tom Stoppard’s birthday party at the Chelsea Physic Garden in London on July 1.

He’s gotten his thirty-something figure back.

Michael Kitchen and his wife were also photographed together at the 1994 BAFTA Awards where he was a best actor nominee for To Play the King.


Latest study finds that several cups of coffee
each day is good for one’s health.



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:


Since it’s National Handshake Day…



Like VIPs who have visited the White House this year, Jack Turner is the victim of an awkward handshake. Customary bowing, in my opinion, is preferable to shaking hands, especially when one must deal with a head of state whose hands have been grabbing the nether regions of untold women. For those with a bad back, though, I suppose a handshake is less taxing.

(Not quite the Michael Kitchen/Stella Gonet reunion I hoped for.)




Two of these actors are currently appearing in the blockbuster film I saw today. Sadly, Michael Kitchen isn’t one of them.

Wonder Woman is seriously good entertainment.









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.





New appreciation for High Castle after watching the episode a second time in its entirety since it premiered.



Jack’s absence doesn’t cause St. Victor’s to fall apart, but ransomware probably would. I hope all UK hospitals and other victims of today’s malicious cyber attack are able to resume normal operations soon.




Much of France has something else to celebrate today.


Faraday’s nieces were lucky to live with an uncle who
valued their education, rare for girls at that time. Here Michael Kitchen endearingly captures the delight Faraday takes in demonstrating to his young, in-house audience
the generation of electricity from a battery.

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.



Thinking, thinking, thinking, eureka!



Alternating current!

Pity no behind-the-scenes footage of the negotiation scene.


A find via the Foyle’s War Appreciation Society and tumblr, Michael Kitchen and Joanna Lumley, the latter captured in this photo blowing a kiss with The Greatest himself, are among the celebrities in the audience at the taping of Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Hits in London on June 5, 1979.

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. I wouldn’t have guessed that Foyle was the milk with dinner type.


Huge explosion emanating from the West Wing.

Constitutional checks and balances at work. Some good news at last.















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. 🙂


Distracting myself from the horrible reality of today’s main event with a play by Molière. Witnessing the ascension of Tr*mp and his cronies these past months to the highest positions of power is sickening enough to make one consider joining the ranks of misanthropes.

Loved watching Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton show up on an elector’s doorstep as much as seeing Michael Kitchen’s Jack Turner surprise Christine at her front door – much needed cheer this holiday season and especially today with the unthinkable moving yet closer to becoming official.
