Quote from: Norton Canes on June 02, 2021, 03:02:39 PMOoh, just managed to sneak in the last episode (sorry, the season finale) last night before it dropped off the iPlayer. Good to know it isn't just Russell T. Davies who thinks it's exciting to have a climactic scene where the hero is attacked by a villain driving a very small forklift (was that in Borough market before it became a hipster foodie haven?). At least it kept Neil Pearson away from the Denning interview scenes, which were frankly much better for his absence. In another Doctor Who tradition, Bernard Horsfall turns up at the end of an epic storyline as part of a trio to try the antagonist. Except aaah he isn't the antagonist, it's weasely Deakin trying to push his weight around, didn't expect that did you! No, because it's a ridiculous twist - but I suppose it was at least in keeping with the series' mantra that it's often the smallest players causing the biggest problems. Anyway it's off to HMS Belfast for an action-packed denouement, except the only action is Clarke thumping Deakin in the midriff once he's been caught.
QuoteBy far the best scene of the episode was the closing part where Naylor and Connell swiftly head off to resume their social lives leaving Clarke to becry his solitary fate as his ex wife and her new partner waltz happily past in the rain. Oh, Tony. Sort your life out.
QuoteStructurally I thought the biggest problem with the series was that the Carswell case appeared a couple of episodes in as what looked like another one-off story, then wasn't mentioned for a few episodes, then came back to prominence in the final few instalments once we'd forgotten most of the details. If only they knew about story arcs in those days, eh.
Quote from: Norton Canes on June 21, 2021, 03:09:11 PMInteresting that Clarke is largely side-lined during his brief spell in charge but frankly it's difficult to feel any sympathy for the c*nt after his horrible sneaky behaviour spying on Harry Naylor's ballroom evening. Jealous much, Tony?
Quote from: Norton Canes on June 22, 2021, 04:53:06 PMDon't think so - unless he briefly acts up in Clarke's S1 role (while Tony's filling in for Deakin) only to be brought back down to earth when Graves gets the permanent job?
Quote from: gilbertharding on June 30, 2021, 08:31:56 AMI think Siobhan Redmond is a terrible actor. She just always looks like she's acting. With a stupid wig on (I know it's not a wig). In a Victoria Wood sketch. Mo's boyfriend really doesn't seem her type. I am always fascinated to see architects depicted on tv. He's got his drawing board in the spare room, with his circle template and his Rotring pens...

QuoteThe episode with the Hillsborough parallels was very well done - stuff in there about the guy in nominal charge being completely unqualified, and being thrown under the bus by his superiors - am I right to say these things which weren't known about in the mainstream for many years later (obviously everyone knew something was rotten)?
