Okay, saw this episode today! Wow! I know I only saw 1 1/2 episodes before this one, but I did notice when he said "I'm sorry, Barbara" at the end - he never calls her that! Poor Lynley. I hope he doesn't lose his job. He needs his job. I don't think he can go back to Earling. Or whatever the verb is for being an Earl :P

I *loved* it when he asked the book dealer how he should act as "a buyer" and he tells him to be arrogant and treat everyone like a servant. Both the look on Havers' face and the way he offhandedly said "I can do that" were WAY funny. Then he did it, and that was great too! :)

I know there's another season. I hope they don't spend the entire next series on the suspension storyline like a soap opera. Do they resolve it and get on with detectiving? All you people who've seen the new season? Help?

But I loved this episode. I just LOVE character-driven storylines. I was getting increasingly worried throughout it about Lynley's temper. I take it he's not usually so quick to lose it?

S.A.

Well.

I just saw this episode - at last! - and all my great expectations were fulfilled. I'm just getting into the series and so I'm watching the first ones at the same time as the last ones and, goodness gracious, can you see a progression in character development (and cinematographical style). It's wonderful to see actors portray the character's growth so ably.

But I did miss the lack of a grisly murder. No decapitations, no impalings, no unusual and yet still gruesome modes of demise.

I jest!

Mostly.

I loved this episode! I wasn't to keen on the ending, when IL was arrested.
I don't know about the whole Helen thing. He should dump her and get on with it. I think he only married her because of Deborah. Should he and Havers end up together? That is a bit tricky. It would be fun to see them together. However, I think it would lose the working chemistry between these two. I think he should have a totally different love interest. An american, a bit bitter and jaded, and doesn't put up with any bull from him, and seeing through his tough guy act, and knowing his true self.
Oh well that is just my opinion.
Also the paliment guy and his wife who know Helen, that seemed a bit ominous, didn't it, as though they were threatening Helen, or maybe she is doing something undercover.

Help is on the way, although I'm not too sure if I do spoil things for you. But since you asked I guess it's OK to tell you a little about it. Nope our Earl will return to his normal work, instead of simply earling around (gosh is there such a word and if so is it a bad word????). :P

No there is lovely new mystery going on and if you really wanna know: I think that the scripts improved a great deal. Hope you won't have to wait til late summer like this year to watch the new stuff.

Cheers

Ohhh, you'll love one of the stories within the latest series: it deals with supernatural things, so let's ask: would a ghost suffice?

A ghost you say?! A ghost would more than suffice!

Capital!
