Killing Time


Lady Egality Guest Posts and Hosts!



In the absence of my dear esteemed friend Lady Liberty Hen (at a wedding in Newmarket today), it falls to Lady Egality, moi-meme, to address you all this evening. 

The Friday Night Foyle’s War Club:

This evening of course is The Friday Night Foyle’s War Club which I shall be hosting (although without Sir Plym who will be found in The Ox and Moose). We are hoping for a full turn out of members both real and virtual except of course that The Graf is away in Scandinavia and Lady Liberty is in Suffolk.  Our episode this week is ‘Killing Time’.  Following a glorious day at Wimbledon yesterday (also quite another story) with my dear friend the beautiful Arabella Ancona who lives in London,  I have decided to serve strawberries and cream and a glass of fizzy noo noo for all those watching with us.

In lieu of a more tangible gift of appreciation, the Club Committee would formally like to extend our sincere thanks to both Port City Dreamer and Anthony Horowitz  for this exciting bit of info – it has made our week!



Killing Time:

Tonight the International Friday Night Foyle’s War Club will be watching:

Episode 2 , Series 6*: ‘Killing Time‘!


July 1945: Sam moves in with Adam Wainwright to help run his guest house though,due to his shyness,they are not a couple. One of the tenants, Mandy Dean,is having a tough time, raising a baby fathered by black G.I. Gabe Kelly. Her old boyfriend Tommy Duggan is devastated when he returns and makes the discovery, To Foyle’s dismay segregation is enforced in Hastings to prevent inter-racial fights and Gabe is beaten up for dancing with Mandy in public. They plan to move to New York but she is murdered on the night a robbery takes place at Gabe’s barracks.Two pleasant boarders at the guest house are not what they seem but, with Mandy’s killer behind bars, Gabe has an unusual offer of help to mind his child until he can return from New York for her. Written by don @ minifie-1


DI Milner does not appear in this episode. (source: Wikipedia)

*N.B. The Episode categorisation is a complete muddle – The I.F.N.F.W.C. Committee has decided for clarity’s sake to categorise each episode as it is named on the ‘Foyle’s War: The Complete Collection’ dvd disc set. Wikipedia however, categorises ‘Killing Time‘ as Episode 2, Series 7


Dialogue from this episode: (source:

Harry Delmont: Sorry things didn’t go your way, Foyle.

Christopher Foyle: Well, that’s democracy for you!


Oh, how I admire DCS Foyle’s philosophical approach to life!


Yours, in absentia,

  1. I have never watched Foyles War, despite harbouring a rather inappropriate crush on Horowitz. Am thinking if you are into it enough to have a club for watching, perhaps I should get in on the act?
    Thanks for linking up with #WeekendBlogHop!

    • Oh it would be lovely to welcome you as our newest member of the Friday Night Foyle’s War Club – I’d be thrilled if you joined us! I now have a rather inappropriate crush on Mr. Horowitz too, after the excitement of his tweet about new episodes!

      & thank you too for linking up with #WeekendBlogHop – isn’t it a great way to meet fellow Bloggers!

  2. I absolutely loved this post. Really made me smile. And I love the illustrations. Feeling a bit stupid that I cant comment properly on Foyle’s war because I don’t watch it!

    Thank you for linking up with the #WeekendBlogHop

    Laura 🙂

    • Oh thank you so much Laura for dropping by and saying such nice things! And a big thank you too for the #WeekendBlogHop linking; I’m really enjoying meeting you all virtually!

  3. You mean to say that the Agent abandoned his standing Friday night Ox and Moose commitment? This is barely credible!

    • I know – I bet you can imagine the fuss he made. He couldn’t get out of it as it was the wedding of a colleague!
