Turn! Turn! Turn!






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



Outspoken women are well represented in this episode.

Foyle changes Barbara Hicks’s opinion of men.  How lovely it would be to have Stella Gonet appear in another episode.



Pivoting aside, Foyle is a man of restrained physicality, but on occasion Michael Kitchen does get to take on the role of action hero in the show. Not since Caught on a Train have I seen MK sprint as hard as he does in Eagle Day.

Cute how he removes his hat while he and Sam flee from the assassin.







Foyle inquires after Barbara Hicks.
