A good episode but not an exceptional one.
8 August 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

John Abinieri - who replaced both Duncan Lamont, who died during filming, and Ronald Lewis, who was taken ill - is great as Ushton and, while she goes a bit over the top at times, Judy Buxton is good as Inga. Her relationship with Blake is bit...what's the polite word? Odd? Brian Croucher's shout-acting - particularly "THE WORD! THE WORD!" - was rather laughable. I just kept thinking about how much better Stephen Grief would have played it. This is the second consecutive episode in which Jenna and Cally are sidelined with most of the focus being on Blake, Avon and Vila. It seems a bit unusual that, now they're a man down, Jenna and Cally are getting less screen time as opposed to more.
