Worth digging up., 20 November 2013
Author: darrenpearce111 from Ireland

I never expected to like this one as the subject matter seemed unappealing. Also the old western-set stories tend not to be true classic TZ. When you get into it 'Mr Garrity' has some darkly satirical things to say about human nature. John Dehner (also in series one -'The Lonely') plays the mysterious, composed Garrity arriving in a town called Happiness professing to be able to raise the dead. This might be a little slow building, but I found it increasingly pleasing as the story unfolded. On something of a tangent to 'The Last Rights Of Jeff Myrtlebank' in series three, although there are more plot twists and turns in 'Mr Garrity'.

The last scene really makes this one 'come to life' as it were.
