A mix of wry humour and drama
4 March 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Stella and Frank Moon run the local pub, The British Grenadier, Frank believes she's guilty of having an affair, so an aggrieved Frank returns to the pub believing Stella and Andy have been at it, collects his gun and holds all in the pub hostage at gun point. Fortunately Frank has no idea that Andy is a Policeman. He takes Stella to get hold of their son, and in trying to escape he shoots the local Bobby Clarkey, with no other option he retreats back to the pub. The Armed response unit have no idea that Andy's inside.

It's a good episode, it's certainly different, the tone, the format, story, etc, it's very original. Dennis Waterman, Lee Ingleby and Vinnie McCabe all really good. Some great touches of humour thrown in the mix too, it also boasts one of the best ever endings to an episode of Dalziel and Pascoe.

Very good episode, the best of Series 4.

8/10
