It's a smart episode.
3 June 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Britain and France at it again, this time over Spinner's Rock, a piece if land with a dubious past, and uncertain future.

The mystery is brilliant, it's so wonderfully contrived, very smart writing. Two minor gripes, the first being Humphrey perhaps being a little too much of the fool, and the second being the rather rapid demise of the gorgeous, wonderful Lucy Cohu, but then the show has a habit of doing that.

Minor quibbles apart, this was excellent, and had me guessing through the end. A good mix of murder, politics and intrigue. 8/10
