What was the bad guy’s shared intention? What was done to Jonty? Nobody cared about Charlotte and her sad life. Dorian and Jonty’s racism went unaddressed. Dorian was cold and calculated. Maltravers (Charles Dance) can sound friendly or threateningly and sometimes both together. The show never reached a clarity high point. Maltravers says everything menacingly. Why did the Dandelion Club get their own table in the dining room? Why was Richard Arc billy no mates? Dialogue offensive to taste was uttered. Damn you ITV2 for cancelling it.
