Watched Broken Souls last night

Oh my goodness. Poor Dr. Novak, and poor Mr. Foyle! :samcry:

I loved their chess-based friendship and especially getting to see Foyle as the student (albeit a brilliant one... of course!) And Sam getting to do her part in questioning the elderly couple (including Emma Thompson's mommy!) and finding Tommy in the attic. Her hair was especially nice in this episode. I found myself wondering how she knows Rose; they're clearly good friends, but Rose is older and has been on her farm the entire war so they can't have met in war work.

Best not to question that too closely perhaps - you might have rumbled Mr Horowitz :awkward: . Sam's character allows the plots to boldly go where the men can't, gain girly insights, explore the wartime privations women endured etc. I mean, you couldn't have DCS Foyle bemoaning the lack of lipstick, begging for a bit of beetroot, could you? :D
Do I need to remind you...how much you can trust me?

:lol: Indeed! In Watsonian terms I'll put it down to Sam's "knowledge of the South Downs" that got her the driving job in the first place; she knows people as well as roads.
