The curse of the mask
7 May 2014 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

France 1789. An executioner wore a mask during his job, not to protect his identity, but simply because he was terribly ugly. In our time, Sydney is in Paris when a model is terribly disfigured, posing with the mask for a photo shoot. There is some kind of curse caused by the executioner's mask, passed on to everyone who wears it, so Sydney and Nigel start to investigate how it can be stopped.

The credibility of the story has two weak points. First, the effect of the mask is hardly convincing, 'a kind of curse' sounds really thin. Second, Sydney Fox as an archaeologist busy with tons of studies is not the kind of person who would spend her limited spare time hanging around with models, this is totally out of character. What I did like were two of the guest stars. Timothy Bateson plays a weird expert for executions who keeps a lot of guillotines in his home. Alex Reid ('The Descent', 'Arachnid') appears as a radical feminist attacking the fashion world and the media, quite an unusual role within the series.
