Michael Kitchen is considerably greyer and rather stouter than he was when he first took on the part in 2002, but the lively intelligence in his eyes and the wise severity of his gaze are as potent as ever. Just the sound of his voice is enough to make you carry on watching. But he is matched by…
I thought she looked pretty unwell in the pre-broadcast pictures, and I didn’t think she looked any healthier in the episode.
Superior officer #1: Detective Chief Superintendent Foyle, I think we all owe you a vote of gratitude.
Foyle: Well, that’s uncommonly decent of you, but I didn’t come here to be thanked.
Superior officer #1: How is the new station?
Foyle: The new station is delightful, apart from the fact that I don’t want to be in it. I resigned.
Superior officer #1: I am aware of that.
Superior officer #2: Yes, it was very good of you to come back after your predecessor…
Superior officer #2: In very unfortunate circumstances.
Foyle: Well, it’s my experience that most deaths are unfortunate, but all that was some considerable time ago. I’d like to know why I’m still there and where my replacement is.

Came across this shot of Honeysuckle Weeks and Michael Kitchen rehearsing a scene for Foyle’s War in March 2006. Since the dynamic duo are barely visible in the original photo, I took the liberty of enhancing it.
Now I’m dying to know what or who they’re staring at outside the car…
Are you ready??
2013 sees the return of former DCS Christopher Foyle, who is now fighting Britain’s enemies in the Cold War that followed the Second World War. Foyle, an espionage agent of considerable cunning, experience and intelligence is bound to prove himself more than a match for the men and women who want to see Britain destroyed.

Dapper with a smile.
I love his smiles - Foyle does not smile enough!!
Foyle’s War: Among the Few
Michael Kitchen caught on film running over the years. :)
Makes me feel like going for a run, especially since it’s supposed to be a balmy 67 degrees outside today…
I have no urge to go for a run, but I do have a ridiculous urge to let him chase me! Given I have a dodgy knee (torn cartilage), I won’t get very far - being caught should be fun!
First look at Foyle’s War Series 8 from the producer. If Michael Kitchen’s face and the spiked fence he’s standing behind are anything to go by, the Cold War looks to be a darker and grimmer setting than World War II.
I may, possibly, have uttered a little scream - and then flailed like a loon when I saw the trailer for the new Foyle’s War series. You’ll find it here - second or third item in. Oh. My. GODS! GIMME - NOW!!!
Proof that they’re always filming Foyle’s War at the wrong time of year for a show that has lots of outdoor scenes (ie in Winter). Anthony Howell and Honeysuckle Weeks don’t appear to be suffering too badly in this S1 filming shot, but poor Michael Kitchen is looking positively miserable as Jeremy Silbertson discusses details with them. I want to bundle the poor man up and get him inside somewhere and feed him hot food…

A couple more photos of the filming of the next series of Foyle’s War, this time from near St Patrick’s Cathedral.
Must say, Foyle’s looking a grimly determined about something in that top one!
