Will Benedetti, the journalist to whom Elaine gave the story of Hard Sun, the forthcoming destruction of Earth by the Sun, is spared by Blackwood but forced to send a chilling message to the police, claiming he is the spokesman for Hard Sun before committing more murders. Elaine is leaned on by her boss Bell to prove Charlie's guilt whilst the police use Father Chapman's address book to identify Blackwood as their suspect, setting a trap with the father as bait and trapping him. However Morrigan has not finished with the vulnerable Daniel. Written by don @ minifie-1

Episode 1.4
3 February 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

I was wrong. This is not a serial killer story of the week as the story carry overs from the previous episode.

Hold on I thought this was a show about the sun exploding in 5 years time? It looks like the writer forgot his own pitch for the series!

Troubled Blackwood is on a killing spree of good Samaritans. Father Dennis knowing the identity of the killer is prepared to become a public pariah by not revealing his identity and preserving the seal of the confessional. However he is prepared to put himself at risk in order to lure out Blackwood.

So here is a scene from this episode. A barber leaves his salon and goes to challenge Blackwood who has a baseball bat and is about to set a car alight with a person inside it. The barber could had taken some scissors, a cutthroat razor or any other sharp or pointy instruments at his disposal. The unarmed barber gets beaten up by Blackwood and then set alight. His friends watch helplessly from the barbers shop while being taunted by Blackwood. None of them shout, 'lets get some sharp pointy instruments and get this nutter.'

Still it was nice to see a turbulent priest at the end.
