I don't like anything about this new Sam. Granted she has grown up and is married, but she still works for CF; they are not equals. She had to know she was putting CF in jeapardy. He has always been there to help her; and if she had just asked, he probably would have. Hope AH comes up with another storyline for her. Don't care about the Sam/Adam backstory either. Takes up too much of CF's screen time.

If they didn't have private detectives back then, then call it something else, but I think CF should work for himself. He has such disdain for all those in authority that I think he would be so much happier running things himself. He could go back to Hastings, open an office, maybe hire Sam, if she behaves, bring back Milner and Andrew and they could all live happily everafter, and so could we. :smile:

Ok, the 2 times (only 2?) I've watched this episode, I've wondered about this:

When Foyle is sitting in his office at MI5, and Charlotte comes in and tells him he can go and meet with the 'Dutch' professor at the library that night, after she leaves, Foyle looks ticked-off/a bit angry. Is it because:

-He has been told that Sam has left early (Charlotte told him this)?
-Or is it the fact that he has to meet with a Nazi who he doesn't like?
-Or, a bit of both?

:puzzled:

I believe Foyle is disgusted at having to meet with a Nazi, and also that "his" organization will protect and harbour an enemy of the British people just to get secrets about the new enemy. :foyle3:

I agree. If he didn't get mad at Sam for the other things she pulled, I don't think he would have for her going home early. He was pretty much driving himself around anyway.

You know, a few times during the 2 episodes that had Charlotte and Sam interacting, I wondered if there was a bit of a rivalry or jealousy between Charlotte and Sam. Sam just looked slightly irritated when Foyle (or someone else, but usually Foyle) asked Charlotte to do something (sorry, no specific examples here--would have to go through the eps again--just speaking off the top of my head).

I just watched Sunflower tonight on my Region 2 DVD, with the subtitles. The subtitles helped clarify for me what Sam said toward the beginning of the episode (wouldn't of caught it maybe, without them). As she and Foyle are walking out to the car, Sam says that Adam is a Private Secretary (we soon learn he's working under a Minister). Well, I know that Adam's an MP, but I guess I thought that MPs were all one 'thing'--people making laws. I guess that there are many positions that carry the term MP (like Private Secretary to a Minister)?

I don't know anything, really, about the British (UK?) Parliament (what's the correct term?). The only time I really see anything about the Parliament in England is every once in awhile, C-SPAN (a news feed channel here in the US) will show the Prime Minister addressing/debating with the House of Commons.

So, can someone point me to a good website that explains (as simply as possible :D ) about how Parliament works, and what MPs do? I tried Wikipedia, but I'm still confused... :puzzled:

Thanks!! :wave:

Hi Samfan,
:wave:
The official site is http://www.parliament.uk/about/
But I would sooner read http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/Britis ... ystem.html
Specifically re Adam's role, there's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliament ... _Secretary
