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.

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:









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.




Much of France has something else to celebrate today.


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.












Sam and Sgt. Brooke talk turkey with Foyle.





Leave it to Foyle to work out a satisfactory arrangement.






From her first encounter with Foyle Barbara Hicks wastes no opportunity to denigrate men.  If anyone can change her opinion, it’s Foyle.






More swiveling from Foyle while in interrogation mode.






Foyle pivots and tilts through his first encounter with Barbara Hicks.



Outspoken women are well represented in this episode.


Anatomy of a smile.









Another go at this lovely, difficult-to-capture scene.






Foyle agrees to a last-minute request from Sam to host her Uncle Aubrey. And for his troubles…

To his credit, though, Uncle Aubrey brings out an unexpected laugh from Foyle:







Foyle and James Devereaux meet for the first time.


On this final day of National Library Week…

From the Glencoe Public Library blog:

There is a bit of wall in a staff area of the library where librarians for a time posted pictures of their favorite actors. One by one, the handsome men were replaced by beloved dogs, past and present. Eventually, only one man’s picture remained among the pooches. That actor? Michael Kitchen. Interpret this as you will, but it does seem to speak to the appeal of the distinguished Mr. Kitchen.

Another librarian commented on the blog, Read Roger :

…a little while back, I displayed the whole stack of [Foyle’s War] DVDs on the circulation desk. The sign just had an arrow pointing to Michael Kitchen with a note that said, “My new boyfriend.”

You wouldn’t believe the number of patrons who came in and got all gushy.






Sam runs afoul of the Official Secrets Act when she relays to Foyle details she has come across that cast new light on Henry Scott’s death.


You’re embarrassing him, Joe.

The billowing coat is magnificent.





Foyle and Joe have a heart to heart about Sam as they walk up “Steep Lane” to Foyle’s house. Afterwards, the real-life Christopher Foyle makes a cameo appearance. A new article in The Daily Mail offers some fun facts about the house on Croft Road in Hastings, which is still on the market. A potential B&B? For me, it would be kind of a letdown to stay there, since the interior scenes of Foyle’s home were filmed elsewhere.
