Oh yes, that scene where Churchill is on the phone, begging Roosevelt for the ships! I forgot about that scene.

Just watched Darkest Hour last night and like others immediately thought of White Feather. Need a repeat viewing!

We're moving into a new house, and it has a walk in pantry. The first time I walked in and turned on the light, I thought of Andrew walking into the larder in Eagle Day.

Haha, that’s great Samfam! I always think of Foyle’s War when drawing the curtains at night. Happy house moving!

When I am on the phone and am writing something down, I think of Foyle on the phone in The German Woman, writing something down while talking to a colleague about checking into her background. I can just see him at his desk.

“Greta....Anna....HAUPTMANN....” Foyle says to his friend at Whitehall on the phone. Which leads to the information that she had brothers in the Luftwaffe! :foyle4:

Thanks Lesley! I knew he said something about a Hauptmann.

While filling out paperwork for a job today, I had to give the manager my passport and social security card. I thought of ration cards and identification papers.

I was watching The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society the other night on Netflix. The scenes with "Foyles Bookstore" made me smile.

Side note: the owner right now is named Christopher Foyle :) (since 1999)

I thought I read somewhere a person with the last name of Foyle had to be included in one of the episodes for some reason (probably because the program used the name Foyle), and I thought it was this scene in Bad Blood (perhaps he's the real Christopher Foyle):

From Lynnedean's Bad Blood summary:
"As Foyle turns his key in the door, a man walking along the pavement calls to him as he passes, "Ah, good evening, Christopher! Did you get the book?" Foyle returns the greeting and replies, "I did. Thank you." The man smiles and continues on his way."

Am I wrong?

Yes, Samfan, that was the real Christopher Foyle of Foyle's Books. He was invited to do a cameo that should’ve taken a few minutes to film, but as he confessed in an interview, his nerves over being on camera got the better of him, and he kept saying, "Good evening Michael," over and over again. Took about a dozen takes before he managed to call MK 'Christopher.' He said MK was very gracious and never showed his annoyance. :foyle4:
