Did anyone see tonights episode of UK drama 'Foyle's War'? I missed the first half but caught a familiar name in the credits - Tim van Eyken.

In the episode guide it shows the following -

Guest star:   Max Brown (Adam Wainwright), Joseph Kloska (DC Perkins), Andrew Scott (II) (James Devereaux), Tim van Eyken (Singer), Richard Goulding (Jack Stanford), Richard Braine (Mr Harmworth), Rupert Frazer (Cmdr Howard), Kirsty Besterman (Caroline Devereaux), Will Keen (Alan Deakin), Georgie Glen (Mrs Ramsay), David Yelland (Sir Charles Devereaux), Anastasia Hille (Jane Devereaux), Robert Ashcroft (Prison Warder), Finn Bennett (Young James Devereaux), Steven Pacey (Michael Harrison), Maggie Service (Sylvie Johnstone), Hugh Ross (Richard Carstairs KC), Paul Webster (III) (Henry Blakesway), Leon Lissek (Isaac Rothstein), Rik Makarem (Simon Rothstein), Ian Bartholomew (Abner Dillon), Denyse Alexander (Miss Longbridge), Dominic Jephcott (Edward Brenner), David Baron (Old Bailey Judge)

Did anyone see who can confirm it was indeed the Tim we know and love?

Cheers

funnily enough that jumped out of the credits at me too, but I never spotted him! So I texted him and he replied, "Yes I was! Beer swilling accordeon playing singing German soldier in the cafe. Haven't seen it myself yet."

Wayhay! I must see if it is on catchup somewhere and see if I can spot him. Well done, Tim, but don't let the bright lights of TV lead you too far away from us:-)

Ah - That's why I missed it. Would a German soldier be playing a Castignari instead of a Hohner? I suppose the Musollini connection had already been made:-)

Justy asking for the sake of pedants everywhere!

We ran and repeated the series in Australia a while ago - it's perhaps one of my favourite 'period' crime dramas. I think we had 2 series - is there a new one?

I video'd it but haven't watched it yet - caught his name in the credits while I was cueing the tape back. Looking forward to hearing him.

I'm very glad to see this new series. The plug got pulled on the show last time fairly abruptly, I seem to recall reading. The producer and cast were pretty shocked, and there was still plenty of War left to run (I think they'd only got up to about 1942 though I don't remember enough specific historical events or details to use as a timeline). At that time there were reportedly no plans for a renewal, so this has been a very welcome surprise. I noticed Michael Kitchen's name on a producer's credit, buried in amongst the Best Boys and Key Grips etc. Wonder if that has something to do with the revival?

Foyle's War is available in six sets of DVDs, or sets 1-5 offered together, and separate set 6 (preorder June 1).
Sets 1-5 has 31.7 hours of material, set 6 has 5 hours.
Amazon has the lowest prices I have seen; some used or discount sites may be cheaper.

Michael Kitchen is a favorite of mine. An excellent series, even the Wall Street Journal praised it. A product of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
Honeysuckle Weeks is an Oxford graduate and studied art in Italy.

Love Michael Kitchen and we really enjoyed what PBS ran of Foyle's War a year or two ago. Am I reading this right, there is a brand-new after WWII continuation? If so, we'll keep an eye out for it. We really, really enjoyed it and what a bonus to keep watch for one of our own, so to speak!

Like Foolestroupe, I caught the series in both its broadcasts on Oz ABC. As I recall, the series (Sing. or Plural?), as broadcast here, ended on VE Day. And I hadn't seen a situation in the screenplay where a German soldier might be so bold as to play an accordion in a pub.

I dare say we'll get to see the third series. I've liked what I've seen of Michael Kitchen's work; in Foyle's War he does the "understated Pom" rather well. And Honeysuckle Weeks can act and/or study art anywhere, especially in my vicinity, for as long as she likes.

Cheers, Rowan

Sadly, yesterday's episode was the final in this series. Would be great to see a fourth series.

A work mate of mine was a love child of an English girl and a black GI.
Last week's episode was such a story and showed how it was all but impossible for them to stay together.
He grew up in an orphanage, but late in life found his mum in England and his family in Alabama.
His dad was dead by then but he was welcomed as one of the family and has been back several times.

hi

I watched it as I do most of Foyles War.

I do not know Tim van Eyken but there was a guy singing Mussi Dem which later became known as Wooden Heart from the Elvis film.

I am not an exponent of the accordian but that was what was being played as Tim sang.

The clip last seconds only.

I understand that there is going to be a further series but there is no news whther Michael Kitchen will be continuing. And Foyles War without Foyle???? Well I suppose you get Taggart without Taggart....lol

cheers

Michael Kitchen fans, keep yer beady eyes out for a film called Alibi, if you haven't already come across it. Great interplay between MK and the very talented young black actress Sophie Okonedo, whose character is caught in the web along with his. Keeps you guessing right till the end.

Amazon review sez:

In this dense psychological thriller by acclaimed writer Paul Abbott (Cracker, Touching Evil), an upper-class man and a catering waitress are brought together over a corpse. Not knowing what else to do, they dispose of the body. As events unfold, seeds of mistrust spread until they threaten to destroy everyone in their reach. Caught in their relentless advance are two unlikely characters, portrayed by critically acclaimed actor Michael Kitchen and Academy Award nominee Sophie Okonedo.

I saw it momentarily at the start in the Dresden bar just before the young English nazi went outside.

'Sei mir gut?, I remember Elvis singin the German bits of Wooden Heart , maybe he got when 'in the service' in Germany?

"Wooden Heart", created by Fred Wise, Ben Weisman, Kay Twomey and German bandleader Bert Kaempfert, was based on a German folk song, "Muß i' denn zum Städtele hinaus". "Wooden Heart" features several lines from the original folk song, written in the German dialect Swabian. Bobby Vinton recorded his version in 1975 with those lines translated into Polish.

The Elvis Presley version featured two parts in German, the first one is the first four lines of "Muß i' denn zum Städtele hinaus", whereas the second part appears towards the end and is based on a translation of the English version (therefore not appearing in the original German folk lyrics). This part being "Sei mir gut, Sei mir gut, Sei mir wie du wirklich sollst, Wie du wirklich sollst...." This literally means "Be good to me, Be good to me, Be to me how you really should, How you really should...."


Isn't Wiki wonderful:-)

Tim - If your listening - Do a cover of it NOW!

We started watching Foyle's War earlier this year and it has become a favorite among the few shows we keep up with.   Tonight the end of the War had come. I am looking forward to whatever lies ahead.

'Wooden Heart' on a Castignari

that would make it the "Axis of Evil Melodeons"!

I bet the continuity dept had no idea. Was this an In Joke on Tim's part. Or that he wouldn't want to be seen playing a Hohner?

Did anyone spot him as a gate security soldier in the Imitation Game? Not a melodeon in sight.

He has quite an acting cv.
