What kind of car........ The exploding kind.
29 April 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

First of all, how date they blow up an MG, what a waste.

I am now even more baffled, this penultimate episode does its job to perfection, it leaves you pretty much in the dark as to who the killer is, as it could quite literally be one of six people.

I'm glad that Sam's book is brought up here, it's been a shame that side of Harvey's character has been absent in this second series, it made him so interesting in the first one.

It's well acted and nicely made, but it's the story that's the real winner here, utterly intriguing. 8/10
