Next to last episode and everyone’s killing it. Pauline Quirke is an absolute force of nature as her character finally unwinds the truth. Joe Sims, an actor that I’ve been a little lukewarm on so far, is really excellent as the unlikable Nigel in this episode. Tennant gets a phenomenal scene as he finally tells the whole story on Sandbrook. I have to give a little derisive nod at the ending of the episode. I mean, there are cliffhangers, but when it’s the next to last episode of a mystery show and the episode actually ends with the detective looking at something off screen and blurting, “OF COURSE!” well, you’re getting a bit cheesy. But I’ll allow it. 4 stars.
tl;dr – great acting and great plot developments; cliffhanger’s a little cheesy, but, what’re you gonna do? 3 ½ stars.
