(on what he has in common with his character in "Foyle's War")
Michael: Malt whiskys have always appealed to me - Laphroaig is my favourite. I'll also do Jack Daniels given half a chance. I fish more since my sons showed up; I always loved the idea of fly fishing, just never got round to it, but I saw the opportunity to introduce it into Foyle. Anthony originally had him as an amateur water colourist and for one or two reasons fly fishing didn't seem at all a bad substitute, so I knew that if all else failed I'd come away with something. Results so far outside the show - one fishing trip, one brown trout.
