Alibi Michael Kitchen International Day of Happiness


I hold it fit that we shake hands and part:
You, as your business and desire shall point you, —
For every man has business and desire,
Such as it is; – Hamlet

Foyle's War The Hide Michael Kitchen's gaze still

Foyle gazing, as only Michael Kitchen can, at the honorable young man who may be his son.

Sentimental Saturday.

Replying to a Data Lounge query on cozy British murder mysteries, one forum member wrote:

…an interesting lesson on writing and showrunning. Foyle’s War should work outside of the premise. Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks are both good actors and their characters were interesting. Yet once WW2 was taken out of the equation, the story wasn’t interesting anymore. I think part of it was that having Weeks’ character marry put a wedge in the boss/employee relationship and the show just fell to pieces after that. Thank goodness they always kept the relationship as father/daughter. If they had Weeks have romantic feelings for Foyle, it would have ruined the entire show including the episodes already broadcast.

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”.

If you prick us do we not bleed?
If you tickle us do we not laugh?
If you poison us do we not die?
And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?

The Merchant of Venice

Peter Blythe’s characters really should avoid fraternizing with Michael Kitchen’s characters. Grp Cpt. Smythe kept his distance and walked away unscathed but woe to Chris Bouch and Kenneth Lawrence.

I wonder if the green color was chosen as an intentional reference to Scarlett O’Hara.

Color and mood befitting this Saturday spent in the warmth of SoCal.

June 7, 2014: I miss the lighter side of Foyle.

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.

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.
