This show’s equivalent of the Baker Street Irregulars show up, Holmes lies, there is back-story and Holmes faces off with the football hardman turned actor. There are twists and Holmes learns he has been wrong about several things. This was okay. Vinnie Jones was scary but Holmes is so unpleasant I don’t care about him.
“M isn’t nearly as mad as he would like us to believe.”
“Thanks for the effort.”
The Ryan brothers lurk, Declan uncovers something, Jack is useless, Daniel smarms, Emily has yet another cunning plan, Nolan plots and Marco can’t act. His was okay but why are we supposed to care about the Initiative or the Ryan brothers or Aiden or Marco? The Initiative woman, Helen, annoys, Nolan rants about some coding, Aiden looks for his sister and where did Declan’s girlfriend go?
In 1944, Lucy is buried. There are a lot of young men in the village for that time in WWII. Mrs Felwood invites Eve to stay with them. Despite her daughter dying, the poor woman is still surgically attached to her overalls and waiting on her husband and son hand and foot. Eve finds Dwight’s lighter in the ruins of the barn and plays at Miss Marple. Dwight slimes. Mrs Felwood asks how her husband knew that Lucy was in the barn when it was a hideous raging inferno. Which is a good question.
This was slow moving despite the odd scenes of hysteria. What did Vivian and Pip do in 1944? Who lit the fire? Why should I care? This was terrible, hell ‘Mayday’ was better than this.
