Yippieh! :thumbsup:

Hope this info is trustworthy!

The author of the article says: [...] it has today been revealed [...], so I hope that she is not simply referring to what JO said yesterday?

Back in August AH replied to a tweet I sent him and said that ITV wants to do more FW, he just has to find the time to write it. Perhaps things are escalating :D

Though she is not quoting anyone else, is she. 'Who' has revealed it, then? No one from ITV1 is named. Fingers crossed for some more official announcement...

My fingers and my toes are crossed and I'll cross my eyes if it helps get FW back with Mr. Kitchen.

Looks like it really is going to happen! :thumbsup:

Very well. MK on brilliant form. All of us excited about the new series.

Be still my beating heart! That's great news. I wonder when they'll set it, time-wise.

When MK was asked what would happen after the war ended, he said, "Foyle's Peace - and a ratings disaster." I have always pictured an opening episode of time lapse scenes of Foyle in his bathrobe and slippers, puttering around the house, making breakfast, fetching the mail, napping on the sofa, playing solitaire, generally doing nothing. They should shoot some of this as a joke teaser for the new series! But I'd still be psyched to watch it!!! :rofl: :foyle3:

Sorry, Lesley.....I didn't get past the "bathrobe and slippers" part..... :foyle5:

Seriously, the "Short Update From AH Regarding FW" post has the list of possible subjects being researched, so I suspect we won't get to see much of Foyle in bathrobe and slippers..... :lol: He'll be a busy fellow. :foyle1:
Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit.

That's what I pictured MK doing those few years he disappeared! :lol:

Since the man wants to do comedy, that would be a perfect lead to "coming soon"

Great news can't wait. If Foyle is going to the US do you think they will film some of it over there??

Not exactly sure where to post this, but has anyone read anything about whether Hilda Pierce might be a part of this new series? It would be a shame if not.

Ellie Haddington, who is named as one of the co-stars in the new series in the Radio Times link posted by Amiga in the "New Foyle's War Photo" thread is the actress who plays Hilda Pierce.

Actually, Anthony told me that weeks ago in a Tweet when I was commenting on the fact that Ellie had first worked with Michael and Honeysuckle on the BBC R4 production of 'Bleak House' WAY BACK in 1998...

If he'd been local, I'd have kissed him for the news that Hilda Pierce is coming back - luckily for him, he wasn't! :samkiss:
