Lovely LA Times piece

I'm not 100% in agreement because I miss Milner, but great piece: :foyle1:

Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit.

Fabulous review, and Mary McNamara certainly 'gets' Foyle and MK's performance! Very well described.

This, of course, brought me up short:
Occasionally there is a flicker of interest in a woman (never, mercifully, Sam)...


:rofl: Though in all honesty I really do have to agree. It would have been completely wrong in canon. It's just that it's a heck of a lot of fun in 'fanon.' (Apparently that's a word now. And a place. And I've been there.)

Lesley :samkiss: :foyle1:

P.S. Is this the reporter who got the exclusive 'email interview' with MK a while back?

ETA: oh no, that was Lynn Elber, for AP in LA

Ah but there IS a flicker of a canon interest in Sam. Fanon simply turns the gas up :pleased:

Blame MK and HW. They twinkle at each other like a secret society. :eyeroll:

Golly! The author of this piece is practically gushing over MK and his characterisation of Foyle. I love it! Wonderfully expressed throughout, this review really touches on the heart and soul of the series. I particularly liked this line, "The series both revolves around and ignores its main character." :lol: Doesn't it just!?
Great piece, thanks for sharing it, Sunshine.

A splendid review by Mary McNamara, who is obviously a woman with
impeccable taste. Thanks for finding this, and sharing it, Sunshine.

Wow - this isn't just a review, this is fangirling at its finest and most eloquent!
If she doesn't respond to the invite, kitchentease, we should make her an honorary member anyway.

That was perfectly put! Also loved the bit about how many hours of "my one and only life that I will never get back" she's spent watching and rewatching Foyle's. :lol: Can totally relate.

I'm beginning to notice a pattern in these rave reviews...they all start out praising the consistent excellency of the show, its stellar writing, and the fascinating history - then wrap it all up with paragraphs of "But what really makes it great is Michael Kitchen!"

Well duh! :foyle5:
