A very good sign off.

You have to hand it to Francis Durbridge, the one person I simply didn't figure would be in the mix.

It's a very enjoyable finale, to what's been a very engaging murder mystery. There have been a string of possible suspects, with multiple murders, looking back now several events from earlier episodes now make sense.

Durbridge naturally uses his bag of tricks, as he literally leads you up the Garden path. One or two plot holes, that remained unresolvable, but who cares, a great mystery. 8/10

A shame Sam never returned.
