This episode wraps up the eight episode first season of Cribb. No big reveals or anything; this is truly episodic television. No difference in this episode from all the others. In this one, Cribb investigates a series of burglaries; they all took place soon after a séance was held in the burgled houses. The real star of the show here is Mick Ford who plays a dashing, aristocratic medium who is, surprise surprise, actually a low-class con-artist. He gets both parts right and is a lot of fun. Judy Cornwell is also very good as an investigator of spiritualists; at first she’s just a comic character, and a lot of fun, but then she gets a really nice dramatic scene near the end. Unfortunately, I don’t know that the ultimate solution to the central mystery really makes sense. Either I missed something or it’s sporting a quite large plot-hole. Regardless, this one is a lot of fun. 3 ½ stars.
tl;dr – Cribb enters the world of séances and spiritualists in this fun romp; a couple of really great performances compensate for a plot-hole or two. 3 ½ stars.
