"My dead husband has walked in through the door!"
30 March 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Syrie Van Epp digs up Phil Scrotty's final resting place - only to find he is not in it. Anticipating elimination by Miss Dunner ( June Watson ) of Dept.K for double-crossing them, he got someone to put blanks in her gun.

So now he is on the run, and sleeping with the recently widowed Mrs.Abigail Whitebait. Except that she is not - her late husband has just been brought back from the dead, thanks to Robag ( Aubrey Morris ). Van Epp wants Scrotty resurrected because he has important information...

One of Twin Peaks' most popular characters was a dwarf. Well, 'The Corridor People' ( often likened to David Lynch's surreal series ) had one too - 'Nonesuch' ( William Trigger ). In a truly startling scene, Van Epp - dressed as a nanny - pushes a pram through a park. Clouds of smoke issue from it. It contains no baby, but a cigar-smoking Nonesuch, who proceeds to shoot a man called Whitebait - who is supposed to be dead anyway.

If all this makes sense, I cannot have explained it properly. I am not going to waste time attempting to rationalise the events of this bizarre show. That way madness lies.

Scrotty gets more air-time here than in the previous instalment, and a right pain he proves to be too. Not merely content with openly bragging about having conned both Dept.K and Van Epp, he allows an innocent man to be eliminated just so he can resume carrying on with his wife.

Van Epp's base of operations is in a disused theatre, allowing for Scrotty and her to have some fun with clown masks. 'Robag' is that wonderful actor Aubrey Morris, who specialised in eccentrics.
