Questioning, yes, questioning look.

Oh goody, I have something to add to the discussion that hasn't been completely done to death.

There is no question that Milner was rude to Foyle and I agree that Milner got the shortest end of the poor writing stick in that episode.

But, I would argue that while he could have been nicer to Sam, his behavior towards her wasn't so egregious. After all, in that scene, they're not just old friends meeting to catch up. Sam is a material witness to a murder and even needs to be considered a suspect (if only for purposes of elimination). He can't just stand around chatting with her. Like I said, he could have been nicer about it. But he doesn't owe her an apology for his behavior.

Also, quite apart from the stress of his first big solo case, he has a new baby at home. Obviously Edie is the one doing the 2am feedings, but he's probably functioning on less sleep.

Anyway, that's my twopence.
