The writers took a risk ... and it paid off...
10 January 2015 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

As indicated in reviews of other episodes. the quality of this superb series can waver, depending on whether the writers are willing to acknowledge they are dealing with one of the greatest dramatic tales of all time, or whether they would simply rather muck about.

This episode starts off with a direct and long overdue confrontation between Colin Morgan and Katie McGrath (who, BTW, may possibly be one of the most photogenic individuals ever to grace the small screen).

However, just when the audience might think sparks are going to fly, the writers find their inner Jerry Lewis and suddenly we have a slapstick comedy taking place for most of the remainder of the episode.

To be honest, it should not have worked. But it did. By now of course it is clear that the writers are building to a close, yet willing to do whatever it takes to delay until the final season.

Good clean fun.
