I would much prefer if he went back to visit Mrs. Corrigan. I'm sure he could think of a reason. I liked her better for him. She was softer.

Totally agree. That's who he needs to take to coffee. :foylekiss:

Okay, just being ornery this morning. But us S/F shippers KNOW who he's meant to be with!

Sorry, if I got the name wrong. Not being a S/F shipper, I'll stick with her.

Also not a S/F shipper and I like the nice lady whose name I think is Mrs. Wainwright.

Having just watched Elise again, I realised that the SOE agent ,Stafford, who helps Foyle identify Elise has the same name ( surname not Christian name) as the SOE agent who warns Foyle he is in danger in The French Drop. He was also an explosive expert. It would have been neat if they had been the same person. It would also explained why he was so helpful when most people where not! Perhaps Paul Brennen was not available, though change of actor for a part would not have been a first!
Julian Lewis Jones who plays Stafford in Elise is in one of my favourite sit/ coms 'Stella' so I was doubly confused for a while

Well spotted, indeed! Would have been a nice bit of consistency, especially if it was Hilda or Valentine who had recruited him into MI-5 post-war, showing good judgement in that selection.

It is nice to have cohesiveness between characters and episodes. I don't imagine it is an easy thing to do, given the amount of episodes, people, and situations, to keep it all straight. I think Anthony did an amazing job tying things together over the years, and the few inconstancies we have found are quite understandable! Cudos to writers everywhere!

I intended no criticism of AH. Foyle's War is one of my favourite TV programmes ever. I love the multi layered scripts inter twined with real events. I don't even mind about buses and prams that are out place. I just wondered if AH had originally intended Stafford to be the same person who was at Hill House, especially as he had given him the same m.o. It would have tied in really nicely. I am sure we could of coped with someone else playing him. We coped ( just) with 2 Adams and 3 Mrs Milners :rofl:

Oh, I know you didn't JW! It's just that I LIKE cohesiveness!

I am just amazed by a writer's ability to 'keep things straight', especially in something as complicated as Foyle's War. As you mentioned, Foyle's War has ..."multi layered scripts inter twined with real events". That is what makes it such an interesting, widely loved show. Some people may not even remember the names of former minor characters, while others notice every detail. Most Foyle's War fans seem to be in the later category! :lol:

Sorry to say, but it was very hard for me to get used to a new Adam, I liked the first one more for some reason, and his character was not a minor one. But in the case of the Mrs. Milner's...neither one of them impressed me much, so it didn't matter I guess!! :noidea:

Just try to imagine a new Andrew.... :puzzled: Nope, just doesn't work!

There is a surprising amount of repetition of character names and sometimes even place names in the episodes. Hill House was both the spy school and the name of Adam's guest house!
Wonder if AH would consider hiring a PA just to keep track of these things in future projects? I could clear my calendar and make myself available for the job! :biggrin:

I hear there's a vacancy for a Foyle's War scriptwriter. :cool:

While we are on the subject of names , I always thought it was amusing that the first desk Sargent in the early FW was called Rivers and that the young one who replaced him was called Brook (Brooksie) :rofl:

About the repetition of names - the name Greenwood is used in several episodes:
Marion Greenwood in the French Drop
Hilda Greenwood in Bleak Midwinter
Maureen Greenwood in the Eternity Ring
and the home of the Markham siblings in War Games is called Greenwood Farm.

And I would not be surprised if there are more.
..but above all, Losberne, he was irresponsible!

Could Greenwood be a subtle tribute to Agatha Christie?
Wasn't Greenwood the surname of one of the main characters in Murder on the Orient Express?
