A nail-biting, tense episode of this modern classic
24 February 2008 | by (England) – See all my reviews

When Tyler and Hunt become an intrinsic part of a hostage situation, the seconds tick away to what could be Sam's last moments in both the past and future.

This is an excellent, tense episode with a gritty edge and fine performances from all concerned. I was especially pleased to see the always gorgeous Ruth Millar appear in this episode as Hunt's nemesis, Jackie Queen. I've been a fan of Millar since the prematurely-axed "North Square". As one of the small screen's most beautiful actresses, I'm amazed we don't see more of this talented lady.

Lee Ross makes another appearance as the unlikeable Litton, leading to a clash of personalities with Hunt.

Unmissable drama - 8 out of 10.
