This was a much darker episode than previous ones – and for me, that made it a more enjoyable and satisfying episode. The character of Martin Summers as a young PC (the character who seems to know all about Alex’s predicament) meeting-up with his older-self gave the episode plenty of dramatic potential. Shame then that the writers chose to have the older-self shoot the younger on first meeting! That’s bound to upset lots of of time-travel purists who’ll no doubt berate the writers and remind them that if the younger self has been shot, he can’t grow older, so there can be no older self to come back and shoot him – are you keeping up?
The other big surprise in this episode was the revelation that DC Chris Skelton had been ‘on the take’ and had removed some vital evidence.
All in all, a well crafted episode with just the right mix of cop-story (less of) and time-travel dilemma (more of). Some nice references to the new Docklands development in London.
Most intriguing moment: Alex picking up a card with a red rose on it – the hand-writing said – “We’re not done…”
It’s the final episode next week and given the inconsistency of the episodes, I hope it goes out with a bang as there is a lot of loose ends to tie up.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
