For all of you Masterpiece fans, Auntie M highly recommends the last three installments of Foyle’s War, starting this week on your local PBS station.  Michael Kitchens plays the Chief Inspector of an English village as the end of WW2 nears.  This actor does wonders with silence and facial expressions.  The supporting cast is quite good, but as the war ends, so is this delightful series, so watch them while you can.

The previous seasons are available on DVD through several catalogues, so if you get hooked, you can go back and see what you’ve missed!

Incidentally, the new host for Masterpiece is Alan Cummings, who gives a delicious lead-in to whatever series is playing these days, half-smarmy, half-wise, all good fun.
