Part one of this two-parter had me really gripped. The double plot was a great idea and it was a mystery how it would all turn out to be interrelated. This also threw light on the moral aspects of the -- at first seemingly 'victimless' -- crime. The acting was good, too.
The second half was a bit of a disappointment, however. The tension was gone, as all the key things had already happened. What was left was a rather depressing and unhappy sequence of events as things just went from bad to worse for all concerned. Slightly unbelievably perhaps, Natalie suddenly turned into something of a super criminal and mistress of disguise.
